Orlando, FL (PRWEB) July 30, 2011
On Saturday, July 30, 2011, Studio K, (http://www.studiokorlando.com) an Orlando-based entertainment studio featuring the largest offering of dance and dance fitness classes for adults in Central Florida, a photography division, and a national public relations agency, is featuring “Body Circus,” an adults-only event that will display a fusion of art, dance, music, food and entertainment in a unique circus-themed environment.
Tabitha Sclafani (http://www.tabithasclafani.com), an acclaimed Special FX/Body and Makeup Artist, is starring at the event where she will perform live body painting demonstrations of models Rebecca Rose Goodman and Anthony DeMill, as well as showcase her two-dimensional artwork in a gallery presentation. Sclafani enjoys a successful history within the arts and entertainment industries offering her talents in the crafts of airbrushing, painting, sculpture, mold, casting and construction. She has been featured at the House of Blues as a face painting artist, as a Special FX Makeup Artist at Universal Studios for shows such as Grinchmas and Halloween Horror Nights, and has performed body paintings for the Roxy Nightclub, M.A.C. Aids Charity Fund, the Haiti Relief Fund, and has recently competed at the Face and Body International Art Convention (FABIAC).
Following “Body Circus,” Sclafani has been selected to serve as a prosthetic and airbrush makeup artist for the Ocean Park Halloween Bash working for AEO. AEO has been the makeup design and show direction company for Ocean Park’s Halloween Bash since AEO introduced the Halloween holiday to Hong Kong in 2000. This will be the 11th year creating the largest theme park Halloween event in Asia and Sclafani’s first year joining this elite team.
“I am so excited and proud to be a part of the ‘Body Circus’ event,” said Sclafani. “It is an incredible opportunity for artists of all forms within the Orlando community to join together and to have their talents witnessed and recognized on a larger scale. Studio K is committed to offering a new venue for the Central Florida artist community and I am honored to be their first featured artist showcase of this genre.”
In addition to Sclafani, “Body Circus” will exhibit instructional variations of dance, including Bellydancing with performances by professional dancers and Studio K instructors Amber Boughton-Salaz and Laura Gipson, as well as LED Hoop Dancing performed by Studio K instructor, Samantha Sanders. Also present will be stilt walkers Angela Tripp, Tyler Sherrier, and Jillian Cicalese, tarot card readings by Claire Sullivan, Photography by Studio K Photographer Dre Sanchez and Manny Desmet, and music by DjSway Miranda who has played venues including Sky 60, Vintage Lounge, Vain 3D Nightclub, and Club 23. “Body Circus” will also feature a raffle of original artwork by Sclafani created exclusively for this event valued at $500, and three outstanding food sponsorships including Buffalo Wild Wings, Quiznos Subs, and Sweet Tomatoes.
“Sweet Tomatoes is proud to partner with Studio K,” said General Manager, Natalia Pacheco. “We are committed to being a leader in community citizenship. Enhancing lives is one of our Company’s purposes, therefore, positive community involvement is essential to our way of doing business.”

It is a deep privilege to meet the amazing artists within the Orlando community and to collaborate in the forms of dance, art, photography, music, fashion, and entertainment, and to provide this opportunity for the public to witness what we hope to be an exceptional collection of work.
