Zen Arts fire dancers, capoeira dancers, and belly dancers performed on a stage built in the center of the pool at the Beverly Hills Hilton Hotel. The Zen Arts performers and firedancers were adorned in white Zen Arts costumes and elaborate airbrush makeup. The crowd was entertained by fantastic acts of fire breathing and fire dancing, as well as belly dance shows featuring exotic snakes, and capoeira dancers doing flips through the air in the middle of the audience. Performances went throughout the evening in front of over a 1000 guests.
French Tuesdays is a nationwide social membership and networking group that gathers in Los Angeles, New York, Miami, San Francisco, and Paris bimonthly at an upscale hotspot in each city.
French Tuesdays has over 18,000 members in the US. Membership is attained by invitation only.
Zen Arts founders Doug Miller and Susie Culini first performed for French Tuesdays last year at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Doug and Susie along with another Zen Arts fire dancer were the only performers last year. This year Zen Arts and the Beverly Hilton upped the scale by bringing not only more fire dancers, but added a unique touch of incorporating capoeira and belly dancers. The Hilton and Zen Arts also collaborated on building a large stage and platform in the center of the pool.
One of Los Angeles’ social elite and high profile attorneys had his birthday at the new stylish SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills. This birthday bash included some of Hollywood’s sexiest and wealthiest socialites and celebrities…in lingerie.
Zen Arts gogo dancers, samba dancers, and belly dancers performed and entertained the scantily-dressed crowd with performances throughout the night. Cocktail hour started out with exotic tribal belly dancing to help set the mood for an evening of seduction and temptation. The main room boomed loud and strong with high-energy go-go dancing and samba dancing!
The Zen Arts go-go dancers performed dance routines from behind a large fabricated shadow box on the stage next to the DJ…their silhouettes seduced the audience with a sexy strip tease to end the night of sultry sensation.
The SLS Hotel is a sophisticated elegant boutique hotel with suites and décor designed by Philippe Stark. Adorned with faux-minx throws, ornate over-sized mirrors, tea-cup shaped sitting chairs, and some of the most gorgeous staff in Hollywood. This 297-room vogue hotel is just a mile down the road from the famous Sunset Strip and is just blocks away from Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. So, let’s add this up: Super hot new hotel, plus super hot people in lingerie, plus super hot performers from Zen Arts…equals a lot of trouble! ‘Nuff said.
Zen Arts took over the Hollywood Avalon with DJs James Lavelle and Steve Porter. Zen Arts aerialists, acrobats, tribal belly dancers, stilt walkers and performers hovered above 2000 people on stage and throughout the Avalon at one of the busiest nightclubs on the west coast.
The Avalon first opened as The Palace in 1927 and has hosted Groucho Marx, Dean Martin, and The Rolling Stones just to name a few. Now, The Avalon is one of the largest and most sophisticated concert venues and nightclubs in the world!
Avaland is Avalon’s weekly Saturday evening event hosting the best DJs from all over the world. Tiesto, Erik Morillo, Sander Kleinenberg, and DJ AM have all played at Avaland. Now add Zen Arts to that list!
Zen Arts put their airbrush artist in the lobby of the Avalon at midnight to body paint the performers right in front of arriving guests. And that’s how the show starts! You have never seen so many people in awe as the gorgeous Zen Arts aerialists and performers dressed in elaborate costumes held sexy poses while the artist performed his magic on them before each of their performances.
The Avalon roped off a 100-foot space in the back of dance floor for the Zen Arts stilt walkers to bounce, flip and catch air for all to see. And instead of go-go dancers, Zen Arts had tribal belly dancers dancing on the large podiums on the dance floor mesmerizing the audience with sultry and surreal moves of tribal derivations.
The main stage hosted DJs James Lavelle and Steve Porter plus the Zen Arts aerialists. Imagine tissu, straps, and lyra (hoop) right above 2000 people! With a lineup like this there was no other place to be in Los Angeles on a Saturday night.
