Fancy something a little hotter? The dangerous and alluring art of fire dancing will captivate the minds of your guests.

Watch me become one with the flame as I perform a sultry fan dance and fire poi routine. Hear their gasps as I demonstrate my mental power over the burn as I make fire to skin contact for more time than you could imagine. See their eyes widen as I hold fire in my mouth and lick the flames like it was my favourite lollypop, only to find I am totally unscathed. And finally, relish in their applause as I blow a towering inferno above my head, the expressions on their faces will instantly tell you that you hired the best entertainment for your event.

Year after year Mum and Dad are faced with the dilemma of 'party planning'. Well struggle no more, and let CiCi half your troubles. You provide the food and the venue and I'll do everything else! While you concentrate on snapping the best birthday photos and chat with your friends and relatives, I shall round up the kiddies for story time, balloon animals, games, silly antics and more. Choose from a 60 or 90 minute party and when it's eventually time to blow out the candles and head home, there'll be a smile on the face of every child.

Give your event that extra edge by have a real life performing character engaging your guests or posing like statues here and there. Suitable for festivals and commercial campaigns right up to black tie dinners, my characters will dally around the space handing out sweets, making balloon magic, spinning poi or handing out leaflets supplied by you.

Do you need a time slot filling in your show? All you have to do is contact me.

I just took the weight off your shoulders!

Claire Kelly is a vocalist with a difference. Not content with performing a specific genre, she currently performs with several bands covering funk, blues, soul, jazz, dub, reggae and acoustic styles around Thailand and Malaysia.

Having played at venues such as The Sage Gateshead Centre for Music (UK), Stockton International Festival (UK) and The Hilton chain, Claire knows how to handle large audiences but similarly, gigs at The Bridge Hotel (UK), Boy Blues Bar (Thailand), Saltburn Jazz Club (UK), North Gate Jazz Coop (Thailand) and Malacca's The Street Kitchen (Malaysia) have made her a prime entertainer for the intimate listening crowd.

Claire's stage presence can be attributed to the years she spent studying Performing Arts and Musical Theatre at Newcastle Performance Academy in the UK where she first honed her passion for performance starting in the mid 90'™s.

As well as the specific venues Claire plays she is also available to hire for any kind of event. Claire can be accompanied as a duet right up to a six piece band depending on your needs or budget with a combination of vocals, piano, double bass, guitar, saxophone, trumpet, drums, flute and trombone.

Whatever style you're after for your event or venue, Claire and her band of merry musicians will certainly be able to tailor a set perfect for your needs.
