    2013 has been a very exciting year for Catalyst Arts and before we dive into 2014 I wanted to hold up a handful of highlights.

    We did a few high profile FIRE DANCE SHOWS this year- and the Client Appreciation Party we performed at The Phoenix Hotel in S.F. captured our fire dancers in this fab Video- http://catalystarts.com/about/corporate-events/

    Our Signature one-of-a-kind ‘LOVE DOVE’ Character got to do her thing at 2 wedding celebrations this year. She collected guests blessings on laser cut feathers as a part of a 4 entertainer Wedding Package at Viaggio Winery in June, and also at a Gatsby themed wedding reception in November.

    Our Founding director Audette Sophia attended the World Body Painting Festival in Austria and was honored twice for her Face/Body Paint Skills– receiving ‘Best Makeup Artist of the Year‘ Nomination from Raw Artists, and being featured at ‘Best Stilt Walking People Painter in the June ‘Best Of’ Issue of The SF WEEKLY!
    Best of SF Weekly Audette SophiaThis Fall we got to add our Entertainment to 2 Classy GALAS- The SF Opera Ball and The Green Gatsby Gala. http://catalystarts.com/about/galas/
    The Opera Ball had a Garden of Good & Evil theme and we had 4 Body Painted performers that blended into the Decor and came alive to do contortion. We had 2 golden butterfly stilt walkers and a Fire dance performance on Van Ness ave.! It was certainly a night to be remembered. Click on the link to see the Video!
