We are Marissa Dorschner and Cade Holmseth and we are 2 Defy Gravity! We are a beautiful and death defying circus-based performance duo founded in Saint Paul and have been wowing audiences since 2009! We perform at all sorts of venues and events across the Twin Cities and Minnesota.
With a combined total of over 40 years experience in Circus and dance, 2 Defy Gravity offers top level professional entertainment that will make any event stand out in peoples' memories! We bring strength and beauty together with danger and awe in a way most people only dream to experience! Combining the circus arts of silks, lyra, acro-balancing, trapeze, chains and fire with dance and aerial dance, we are a great addition to your next event or party! We do birthdays, weddings, private parties, nightclubs, fundraisers and any other event you can think of as both mainstage and ambient performance to generate lots of buzz about your event and get people talking!

In addition to being a performance duo, both of us are teachers of the aerial arts. If you've ever wanted to run away to the circus and learn to fly, we offer classes and private lessons as well! This is perfect for birthday parties, bachelorette parties or other small to medium group activities!
