The “Hammocks `N Chill” event, part of Urban Hang Suite Vol. 2 was held at Lion’s Heart Studios in Houston this past weekend. So many people I talk to love to go out but are just not into the nightclub scene. They are looking for a place to get dressed well, talk with new people from different walks of life, listen to relaxing music, and enjoy a night away from the daily grind. This event was all of that and so much more. There was good food, tropical cocktails (virgin and alcoholic), as well as different water infusions. The highlight of course was the colorful hammocks hung around the spacious venue for people to literally just chill in. They were close enough together to have conversations with someone next to you but still have room to yourself. I performed throughout the night on my white silks with artistic images projected behind me. I really felt in the zone with the great music and cool crowd. The event creator and owner of Lion’s Heart Studios, Nya Dillard, plans to host another 2-day event in July and I can’t wait to be a part of it!
I was so honored to perform for Israeli Independence Day in Houston this past weekend. This city is famous for its amazing cultural diversity and Israelis definitely know how to throw a party! They played great music and danced all night. Everyone wore the national colors of blue and white including myself. I began my lollipop lyra performance to “Becoming Insane” by the super cool Israeli electric band, Infected Mushroom. There were also hula hoopers, a fire dancer, and a saxophone player. This was my first time at an Israeli party and I had such a great time. Happy 70th birthday Israel!!
Robin Schulz opened the pool party season at Cle (day and night club) this past Sunday and played an awesome set. I was costumed in gold with monarch butterflies by Lady L Entertainment and performed on my lollipop. Houston weather is always unpredictable but this day was perfect. Warm, sunny, and full of chill vibes and people ready to say goodbye to an unusually cold winter. We actually got a few inches of snow this year!
I always love performing at the pool parties at Cle. I’m thinking about having a new outdoor apparatus built just for outdoor events like these but still in the early designing stages. So many ideas!
I got show off my gorgeous aerial moon at the Spire Club in Houston over the weekend. There was an Above and Beyond concert nearby and this was the after party. The moon needs a couple people to haul it around because of the size and weight but it’s a total show stopper. The crowd thought it was just a decoration piece at first so when I climbed up on it they were amazed! It was decorated with blue LED lights which made it pop even more. It’s such a special piece of equipment to me and I hope to do some duets on it some day. It made an appearance at the Lights All Night music festival in Dallas for New Year’s weekend (see earlier blog post) and looked beautiful just hanging there. I get my fair share of bruises practicing on that beast but definitely felt like a goddess last weekend for a couple hours. Then back to being normal the next day!
It was a dream come true for a beautiful 15-year-old girl named Jasmine. But not just because her birthday was a night fit for a queen. It was special because her mother was able to celebrate it with her. Her mother was diagnosed with a serious illness and could not attend the party initially. It had to be delayed for months, but with the love and support of the entire family she was able to see her daughter sing, dance, and have the time of her life. I was so honored when they asked me to perform for the party. There were so many adorable children who were amazed at the flying aerialist in the sky. I took pictures with all of them and told them that they could fly one day too if they wanted. This was definitely one of the most heartfelt shows I’ve ever done and I won’t forget it.
Spire nightclub has been the hottest spot to party in Houston all year and celebrated its first anniversary last weekend with DJ Dirty Audio. Hosting artists like Kaskade, Steve Aoki, Afrojack, and Drake are just some of the big names they bring to the downtown scene. I brought my gorgeous green silks and performed an aerial show for a high energy crowd. I always love dancing at this venue and can’t wait for the next big party!
It was open house at the stunning Sans Souci Ballroom in Tomball, Texas. You really have to see this place to believe it. It has the largest chandelier in the city and the whole place looks like it’s dripping in crystals. I got to show off my aerial skills to prospective brides looking to make their wedding unforgettable.
2017 marked the 8th year of Lights All Night, one of the biggest music festivals in Texas. The show was two nights with some of the biggest names in EDM and I was chosen by Lady L Entertainment as one of 10 performers to entertain the massive, sold out crowd in the Dallas Market Hall. I performed on an aerial moon, aerial fabric, and lollipop lyra. My beautiful, custom-crafted aerial moon was a huge hit with the crowd. Setting it up was no sweat thanks to the incredible production team.
