    Chanel Hula Hoop Inspired Purse

    Hoop bag
    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!”

  • 3D Hooping Workshops in Toronto and Ottawa

    Hello Hoopers!

    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

    Much love,
    Safire
