Cat Carter has been teaching and performing aerial acrobatics since 2010. The Flying Okie has produced several circus performances featuring various performers such as aerialists, acrobatic balancing, contortion, burlesque, and much more. Cat’s aerial performances have placed her as the 2015 Lyra Champion at the Texas Aerial Festival and the winner of the 2016 People's Choice award for Lyra in Chicago. She has featured in performances next to the Oklahoma City and Norman Philharmonic companies. Performances have been booked by Oklahoma City’s Arts Council, Allied Arts, Lifechurch, Calm Waters, Plaza Arts Festival, Norman Arts Festival, Grand Casino, Firelake Casino, Osage Casino, and many more. Cat continues to instruct and perform around Oklahoma and surrounding states. Her passion is to share her love for aerial arts with her students and with the public.
Cat's style of performance consists of classical movement with a modern twist. The fluid motion meets a wild skyward leaping dance. Twists and turns with a hint of daredevil, witness the amazing Flying Okie!
