Review: ARENA Bikini: OASIS

After hosting last year’s annual fundraising event, ARENA Bikini, at the Aria during a frigid March evening, local performance company ARENA Dances decided to heat things up for this year’s bash. Instead of snow and cold, guests were treated to a steamy Sunday afternoon on the club’s rooftop pool deck, where models dressed in clothing form local boutiques and swimwear designers sauntered, and dancers from the company performed, poolside, with founder Mathew Janczewski’s always-inventive choreography. (And at some points, even dancing their way into the pool. How’s that for synchronized swimming?)

Swimwear and poolside-ready looks came from local stores MINQ—which is in the midst of a consolidation sale before it closes shop at its West End location on July 27—Atmosfere, Prana, Rainbow Road, and Second Debút, as well as local swimwear designers ArielSimone and Perfect Fit Gear, which specializes in fitness competition swimwear. Dancers were also styled in looks from Prana.

Here are all the cool looks (and hot dancers) from Sunday’s events:
