I had a great time this year provide Halloween Party Entertainment at the PNE’s Fright Nights festivities in Vancouver. The event runs for two weeks at the end of October. Fright Nights brings together performers, roving characters, carnival rides and haunted houses. I provided roving LED hula hooping as a broken doll character as well as a half hour stage show. The show included contortion tricks, ball and chain spinning, blockhead (nails in the nose), hula hooping and audience participation. Fright Nights was an absolute blast and it was great to meet the other performers whom were booked. The fire show was done by Keith the Leaf and freakshow performances were done by none other than Orbax and Pepper of The Monsters of Schlock.
Extreme Alberta interviewed Safire this past week. Safire teaches hula hoop dancing in the Edmonton area as well as makes and sells hula hoops on her website; Safiredance.com. The interview discusses hula hoop dancing, with comments from Safire’s students, a section on what hula hooping means to Safire, as well as some resources you can check out. If you’d like to learn hoop dance, check out Safire’s Online Hoop Dance Classes at Hoopcity.ca or her *Update* Calgary Hoop Dance Classes.
In addition to teaching hoop dance, Safire is also a circus and fire performer providing unique entertainment for festivals, corporate parties, children’s events and more! She also provides unique motivational presentations through Inspire Through Fire.
