• Circus Clown Photo Shoot

    I did a fun circus clown photo shoot with the oh so talented JC Battad in January. For this shoot I dressed up as a white circus clown in a costume I’ve used for several events. This character is playful and childlike, a little bit mischievous and a little bit devious. This shoot was especially fun as there was a large group of photographers and models at the event and it was a great opportunity to meet other creative individuals in the city of Calgary. I am looking forward to future shoots with several other talented photographers.

  • Stollery Snowflake Gala – Edmonton Circus Entertainment

    SaFire Dance Inc. provided a range of circus entertainment at this year’s Stollery Children’s Christmas Gala. Some of the acts we booked included stilt walking, juggling, fire eating, fire dancing, contact juggling, balloon twisting and LED hula hooping! The evening included tons of prizes, silent auctions, entertainment, music, dinner and a live band!  I think my favourite part of the night honestly though was when they were drawing the winner for a grand prize of a NEW CAR. Six people were on stage and each had a key with only one of the keys being able to unlock the door. Well… low and behold all six people tried and no one was able to open the door!! Everyone was shocked and confused.
    They decided to allow each guest try their key again and sure enough one woman’s face was a mix of shock and horror as she realized that her key did in fact work! Can you imagine? You wouldn’t even be embarrassed that the key didn’t work the first time because you’d be so overjoyed with the fact that you won!
    The event and decor were absolutely GORGEOUS and we look forward to working with the Stollery Children’s Hospital for next year’s gala event! The lovely gentlemen juggling and stilt walking is the oh so talented Nikolai Smith, an Edmonton based performer.

    Circus Entertainment for an epic Circus Themed Event!

Carla attended Safire’s local classes in Edmonton years ago and has since launched her own successful class series as well as hula hoop and prop shop.  Check out the video!

    Chanel Hula Hoop Inspired Purse

    Hoop bag
    This week an article on Calgary featured Calgary hula hoop dancer “Safire” as a hooper to watch out for in 2013. The article begins with a nod to the recent Chanel bag designed and inspired by hula hoops. The article continues on to say about Safire:

    “Safire is a prime example of a hoop leader today, multifaceted like you wouldn’t believe she is a performer, teacher, writer, photographer, lover of life and very possibly one of the first teachers of hooping for this new generation of hula hoopers out of Canada. Alberta to be more specific! Her Youtube videos spread like wildfire and she has been behind many different initiatives to bring the hula hooping community together.

    A visionary and possibly one of the very first hula hoop instructors to have developed a deeper connection with hula hooping fans across the world thanks to her tutorials online, Safire is also another hooper who holds a very strong background in all things performance, just check out her repertoire. She teaches physical classes in Edmonton and Calgary and travels the world to teach showcase her work at various festivals!”
