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.
This week Alberta Prime Time did a spot on Edmonton hula hoop classes and the local instructor Carla Snow of Flowlab. Both Safire and Carla were featured in the “Around Alberta” television spot. The spot follows Carla Snow’s experience of transitioning from working as an accountant to working full time as a hula hoop dance instructor and teaching hula hoop classes in Edmonton, Alberta. 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!
