Where Carnaval meets Cabaret!

HOT PINK FEATHERS performs World Cabaret Showgirl dance. Recently voted BEST DANCE COMPANY in the SF Bay Guardian "Best of the Bay" polls, the Feathers are committed to Delighting the World, One Showgirl at a Time. Think Busby Berkeley choreographing an ethnic dance festival, with Carmen Miranda, Josephine Baker, Lola Montez & Little Egypt as his side kicks.

The Feathers are veteran performers of cabarets, clubs, concerts, carnavals and corporate events, from the intimate to the grand.

Led by the current reigning Queen of Carnaval SF, Kellita, the Feathers embody full tilt joy and passion in a professional dance revue package. A Feathers show is guaranteed to bring smiles to each and every face in the house. These San Francisco-based dancing darlings are spreading the glitter gospel across the globe with their exuberant extravaganzas.

Highlights of the past years in the life of Hot Pink Feathers include performing in Margaret Cho's Sensuous Woman variety shows at the Plush Room and Bimbo's in San Francisco and at El Cid in Los Angeles and sharing the stage with Rosin Coven at The Fillmore. You may also have caught the Feathers entertaining many millions of TV viewers on NBC's America's Got Talent. Hot Pink Feathers earned First Place in Original World Dance at San Francisco's Grand Carnaval 2005 & 2006.

From family friendly to delightfully risque revues, the Feathers entertainment themes range from Brazilian Carnaval, Vegas Showgirl, New Orleans Mardi Gras, Old Havana Mambo, French Can Can, Gypsy Cabaret, Tropical Sambafest, to Bawdy Bollywood and beyond.

A Feathers revue is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face with their cheeky and playful presence.

The Feathers were founded in 2000 by award-winning dancer and choreographer Kellita Maloof. In addition to providing artistic direction to Hot Pink Feathers, Kellita delights audiences with her array of captivating solo acts. Choose Kellita: in her Brazilian Carnaval solo; her latin showgirl number; her samba lounge shimmy shake; or in one of her more classic burlesque pieces: her feathery tribute to Night Train, her alluring Gyspy act, her sizzling Jungle number, or her humorous Bunny act (with option of Kellita jumping out of a life-size gift box!).

Kellita was a member of Rococo Risque Cabaret, awarded Best Theater Ensemble by SF Weekly 2005. She has ventured a la carte to Las Vegas, Hollywood, Seattle, Denver, Anchorage, NYC, Costa Rica and Honduras, leaving glitter and grins in her wake. Kellita was named Little Miss Aftershock for her outstanding shimmy-shake at the Miss Exotic World Contest and earned a nod to her main instrument of bump 'n' grind at the New York Burlesque Festival with a Golden Pastie for Best Derriere.

You may have seen Kellita on Fox News leading a Conga Line in San Francisco's Union Square to kick off National Dance Week in April 2007, and again in 2008, alongside Carnaval King Everett. You also may have spotted her as MC of the Carnaval San Francisco King & Queen Contest alongside Feather Kerri in March '07. KRON 4 interviewed Kellita on Carnaval morning in May '07. She also appears in KRON's documentary of SF's nightlife, "Sex & The City," and ABC and CBS spots on the Grand Re-Opening of the Condor. She is the debut act in the burlesque stag film "Broad Daylight" by John Michael McCarthy, and was interviewed and performed live on webcast through WFMU.
