In February Edmonton got a chance to see the infamous documentary The Hooping Life when Carla Snow of Flowlab and Nina of Infinity Hoop Dance brought the show in town. Now the movie is making it’s way south and showing up in Calgary too! Check out the Facebook event page and save the night of March 22nd to see the screening of this piece of hooping history. In addition to the screening there will be music and performances throughout the evening. Safire will be performing her Multi Hoop Electro Swing act so if you missed it at the Cabin Fever event than now’s your chance!Read More »
I’m going to be in in Toronto and Ottawa this April and teaching a 4 hour 3D hooping workshop. This will be my first visit to this area so grab a ticket while you can. In this 4 hour workshop you’ll be introduced to the concept of 3D hooping and explore a series of moves that fit into this category of hoop dance. Flipping the hoop on it’s axis and capturing space using four different techniques include hinges, palm spins, contact flips and arm wraps. The video above has a sample of some of the moves we’ll be covering.
Registration and additional details can be found here: Safire 3D Hooping Workshop

The Cabin Fever Electro Swing Event was excellent! A big thanks to James for bringing me in for the show. I did a newer and longer version of my Catgroove routine that now includes some double hoop moves and some more awesome triple hoop moves. Including a double chest roll while knee hooping! That move is by far the hardest one to master but I pulled it off and caught both hoops. I was a bit worried since I’ve been training at the gym this week and my arms are SO SORE! Luckily as soon as I get on stage and ready to perform all sense of pain always disappears instantly and rehearsed choreography sets in. I’m looking forward to the next electro swing party and am hoping to put together a new and unique act for that event as well.
My friend Lucky took some photos of the performance. Hope you like them!

The new Astral Harvest website is up! There will be tons of awesome DJs, performances, workshops and art around the festival. I went last year and had a blast. Not sure if I’ll be able to make it for this year, just got booked in Calgary on the Thursday so it would be a long drive to make up north for this one. We shall see, the party might still call me. ; )
