Spin Starlets



The Spin Starlets are a futuristic fusion of technology,  choreography, costumes, cirque and music. The incredibly innovative performance puts these starlets at the forefront of modern, corporate entertainment.

The Spin Starlets are a group of three to five fresh, strong, and charismatic women. They combine state of the art LED props, such as hula hoops, poi, fans, ropes and wands with choreographed routines to music. Their custom costumes can change depending on the theme and are a spectacle in their own right.  Their look is topped with LED motion sensor goggles and white wigs.

These starlets make your brand come alive by incorporating logos, text and images; mixed with abstract designs in an array of vivid colours and shapes. They create striking and viral-worthy moments, for  maximum digital impact. We know this is what todays planners yearn for and expect. 

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

The Spin Starlets know how to take it up a notch! Blend their combined talents, add a good dose of LEDsprinkle in fresh beats and together they create fire (in a safe non-flammable way, of course). These women bring the energy and excitement your event needs!

*** With a costume designer, choreographer and DJ on this team, your act can be customized in any way!!
