• Hoop Path Workshops in Calgary and Edmonton

    Hula Hoop Workshop and ClassesBaxter of the Hoop Path will be doing workshops in Calgary and Edmonton Next Month. If you have never taken a workshop with Baxter I would strongly recommend it. His style of instruction is unlike any other that I have experienced. He truly guides you though a journey over the course of three days and you’ll discover things about your hooping that you may never have encountered on your own. I always walk away from his classes with a renewed perspective on hoop dance and on my personal practice. I’ve decided to give his workshop a try with 2 hoops this time to see if I can break through some barriers and limitations I have with twins. I’ll let you know how things go. Check out the Hoop Path website for tickets, he’ll be in Calgary the weekend of February 24th – 26th and in Edmonton March 2nd – 4th.

    Much love,
    Safire

    Prop Rock brought together spinners and jugglers of all kinds for an evening performance showcase followed by a slammin’ dance party with excellent DJ’s. This event was the first of its kind in the Alberta spinning scene but is sure not to be the last. A big thanks to Carla Snow of Flowlab.ca for hosting this event.

  • Safire’s Back in Canada with New Acts and Roving Characters

    Hello world!

    It’s been awhile since I’ve posted on here, as some of you know I’ve spend most of 2010 and 2011 traveling around the globe teaching and performing hoop dance. Some of my favourite highlights were performing at the open stage at the European Juggling Convention in Munich, Germany, performing for children in schools in Bali, Indonesia and seeing Zaia, a Cirque Du Soleil production in Macao. Overall my favourite part of the journey was getting the opportunity to meet follower circus and fire performers as well as see the shows that they have created. I must say that I have been incredibly inspired! Some of the performances I saw left my jaw completely dropped and honestly left me with the thought of “I need to rehearse more.” That being said, I am excited to be back in Canada and performing again. I’ve moved into a new place with a large living room studio and will be exploring with all this new knowledge and experience to create even cleaner shows than I have before. I’m loving me new home and the space to work creatively to create specialize roving characters and unique costumes for my shows.

    My New Circus Studio in Calgary
    Finally a living room that is hoop friendly! Looking forward to posting some new videos too!

    Much love,
    SaFire
