    This week an article on Calgary Fashion.ca 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!”

  • Calgary Party Entertainment – Sweet City Celebrations

    Last night was the evening filled with Calgary Party Entertainment at the Calgary 2012’s Sweet City Celebrations event. It was a massive party held at the BMO Centre. The party was in celebration of Calgary being named the Cultural Capital of the World for 2012.  I’ve found a few great photo streams from the event on Flickr if you missed the party and what to see what it was all about.  Check out the photos from the Stampede Promotion Committee and Jame’s Set to see how wild this party was! It was packed with Go-Go Dancers, Superheroes, Bollywood, Luchadors, Food Trucks, Living Statues, Circus artists, DJs, Cowboys, Dragons and amazing light and sound equipment.  The event included over 150 performance artists!

    I performed roving entertainment for the line ups, the lobby area and the VIP guests upstairs before the doors opened to the event, welcoming guests to the evening and creating smiles during the wait. Here’s a few photos from the evening.
