On Sunday, we traveled out of the city for a private event at the newly expanding, Live! Casino in Hanover, Maryland, celebrating the Asian Exotic Food Festival! Our Bellydancers posed with guests for photo ops and shimmied through the dining room alongside our Snake Dancer who excited and charmed the guests with her slithery friend.
We kicked off Independence Day weekend with a splash at a private yacht party in Sag Harbor with Relier NYC. Our lovely mermaid was caught lounging in her shell floating in the ocean alongside our Aqua Bubble Dancer, performing on the stern of the Libertas!

We were honored to be a part of the City Harvest: Summer in the City fundraiser, featuring our shimmery gold Aerial Bartenders on the lollipop lyra, while our beautiful electric violinist performed alongside the DJ, setting the scene to a fabulous night where almost $400k was raised to help combat hunger in NYC!
From the City Harvest Facebook:
"Last night's Summer in the City raised nearly $400,000 to support our work fighting hunger in New York City!

Thank you to our Culinary Hosts Michael Chernow of SEAMORE'S, Suzanne Cupps of Untitled (at the Whitney Museum), Dale Talde of Talde, and Pamela Wiznitzer of Seamstress NY for curating a one-of-a-kind evening for our guests!

We had a blast curating the entertainment for this year's Pinknic, New York's largest outdoor rosé picnic and music festival on Governor's Island. Confectionary pink-clad aerialists turned tricks on the Lollipop Lyra overlooking the pool, flanked by pink mermaids on flamingo pool floats, while our stiltwalkers & acrobats juggled and balanced high above the heads of picnic guests near the Ferris Wheel. As guests sipped on rose-colored bubbly, our contortionist stepped in a bubble of her own to steal the show in a special set in the pool. Check out the videos below!
Ellis Island was the perfect location for a spectacular summer social for IP Soft, where we were transported to Little Havana for one magical night.
Our beautiful Copacabana dancers and live Cuban percussionists led party guests from cocktail reception to dinner in a lively conga procession to kick off the evening's festivities.
After dinner, guests enjoyed hand-rolled cigars from our authentic Cuban cigar rollers, and we lit up the dance floor with an incredible performance by the 5-time winning team of the Salsa World Championships.
We're all mad here! What a wonderful time we had running around Central Park at Tavern on the Green for Arcesium's Alice in Wonderland themed party. Our cast of whimsical Wonderland characters brought the scene to life with White Rabbit Ballerinas performing a pas de deux through the dining room and a Cheshire Cat Contortionist lounging about the windows in elegantly confusing poses. Alice fell down the rabbit hole and spun herself around above the heads of guests on the Lollipop Lyra, while the Red Queen juggled her way through the crowd below. Guests had the chance to pick out hand drawn Flash Tattoo from our talented artist as they were entertained with wit and little slight of hand from our Mad Hatter Magician.
All of our Alice in Wonderland themed entertainment can be performed as various separate acts or curated as a full length feature show.
Our newest costume is a Ziegfeld Follies inspired peacock transformation dress that is perfect for summer garden parties and Gatsby-themed affairs. See the dress in action below.
Last week, our showgirls made their way to Baltimore, MD for the Grand Opening of the Sagamore Pendry Hotel, produced by Stephanie Bradshaw and her team from SB Creative. Located in Baltimore's historic Recreation pier, the newly renovated luxury hotel honors the historic essence of the property, erected in 1914, and reflects the romance of a bygone era. As guests explored the hotel, our classic showgirls mingled on the floor with their sweeping feather fans... as several showgirls adorned the bar, sitting in trapeze swings 10 feet off the ground!
Last night we were transported back to the 1960's in a Madmen styled event with JKS Events to celebrate the brokers that completed their official lease signing for the new spaces at 28 Liberty. Our Go Go Dancers were all the rage as they shimmied and jived around on elevated platforms throughout the party to a live band.
Last weekend, we got down at the The Bowery Hotel for NYC Craft Distiller's Fest where we celebrated Craft Beer with some high flying entertainment by our aerialist on the Lollipop Lyra and beautiful burlesque showgirls. Our Gatsby themed swing couples also danced to the live musical stylings of Baby Soda Jazz Band, engaging guests and pulling them to their feet. Thank you, Sam, for a roaring good time!
