The dance program at The Venetian® Macao-Resort-Hotel is under the direction of Keith Hawley. Keith's prolific career, both on and off the stage, coupled with his innate creative abilities is an asset to the program and its future development. Keith's vision is to create a dance program so well known, that dancers from all over the world aspire to procure a contract with this program. The number shows that are produced on a rotating schedule are 12 shows every 3 months.

The corporate event market Sands Macao, The Venetian Macao and The Plaza Macao secured, is yet another opportunity for the contracted dancer to further their abilities and also add to their CV. For example dancers have been asked to work with such artists as Mariah Carey, Rain, Peter Andre, Chris Brown, Beyonce, Avril Lavigne, Lady Gaga, to name a few.

Again, an enticing six-month contract, complete with housing allowance, return airfares, meals, and possible travel opportunities throughout Asia will be offered to a select number of highly talented performers.

"As an Australian it is a huge thrill to be coming home to search for the finest young talent in the country and offering them work in one of the world's most exciting entertainment destinations. Of our 200 artists currently on contract in our 3 properties in Macao our best people are always found in Australia. As an artist myself I understand the importance of being able to offer diversity in the work. One day they will be performing at a corporate function for major banks the next day they could be performing with Lady Gaga. It is amazing to see the growth in our artists during their contracts," according to Tomos Griffiths, Creative Director for Sands Macao.

About The Playboy Club: First opened to the public in 1960, The Playboy Club quickly became symbolic of glamour, luxury and 'the good life.' At the height of its popularity there were more than 30 Playboy Clubs owned or licensed by Playboy, with more than 1 million Playboy Club key holders worldwide.

Described as a 'Disneyland for adults' by Newsweek, the first Playboy Club opened in Chicago in 1960. An instant hit, The Chicago Playboy Club soon became one of the busiest nightclubs in the world.

In addition to providing a glamorous and lavish entertainment destination for revelers, Playboy Clubs attracted the most sought after entertainers of the time, including Woody Allen, Bette Midler, Bill Cosby, Sammy Davis Jr., Ray Charles, George Carlin, Chubby Checker, Bob Hope, Steve Martin, Liza Minnelli, Sonny & Cher and Flip Wilson – among many others.

Playboy Clubs eventually included more than 30 properties across the world. Playboy Clubs employed more than 25,000 iconic Playboy Bunnies, the iconic mainstay of the Playboy brand. Playboy Bunnies were carefully chosen and went through an audition and strict training and were required to maintain very high standards of etiquette, behavior and dress.

The first uniform to be issued a trademark registration by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the original Bunny Costume started as a modified one-piece swimsuit.  Actresses Lauren Hutton, Julie Cobb, Lynne Moody, Maria Richwine and Barbara Bosson all worked as Bunnies, as did rock star Deborah Harry.  One of the world's most recognized uniforms, the Playboy Bunny Costume was redesigned in 2006 by Roberto Cavalli for the Playboy Club Las Vegas Bunnies and Playboy Club Celebrity Dealers, including Jenny McCarthy and Carmen Electra.

Playboy Club, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2010, will make its highly anticipated debut atop Sands Macao Hotel later this year. The 12,000 square foot penthouse club will incorporate high-end gaming and an opulent lounge overlooking the Macao skyline. The venue will feature Playboy inspired d├ęcor and artwork, high-tech media rooms, private gaming areas, live entertainment and a unique VIP arrival experience.

About Sands Macao: Opened on May 18, 2004, Sands Macao is the first Las-Vegas-style casino in Macao. It quickly redefined the entertainment experience and set the standard for future developments in Macao.  The stunning, reflective gold glass exterior houses a wide range of diversions, from 289 suites, signature restaurants, a theater, outdoor swimming pool, deluxe spa and salon, conference and banquet facilities, unrivaled shows to a vast array of gaming offerings.
