Circus of the Strangely Beautiful: Feral Apocalypse
Friday, September 22, 2017
Another event with the amazing Harley Page at her feral apocalypse themed burlesque and contortionist party. I got to roam the crowd and entertain during breaks and intermissions. It’s always fun to be where I get to watch other talented people do what they do best!
Saturday, September 14 – 17, 2017
Although it wasn’t at the typical location this year, I had a great time hula hooping for various artists throughout the festival. It was cold at night but the party still went on and the dancing kept us warm.

At Shambhala this year I was approached seperately by both Logan Hart and DJ Hoola Hoop to dance on stage. The first was at Pagoda at 5pm and the second was during DJ Czech’s set in the Living Room later that night. The amazing thing about this, is that it is DJ Czech that brought me into the world of Electronic Music, which ultimately led to my life of hula hooping. I cannot tell you how amazing this experience was for me.
My very first parade! This was a LOT of fun (I’m with Fire Storm at 0:22 to 0:55):

Taboo – Naughty but Nice Show 2012
November 8 – 11, 2012
As a roaming entertainer I was able to browse the shops and meet people all while stopping every now and again to show off my mad hooping skills. I had an absolutely amazing time and met many other spinners from Alberta. Every now and again I would have crowds of people surrounding me, taking pictures, video or just stopping for a quick look. Hope to be back next year!
Shambhala 2012 – Pagoda Stage
August 10, 2012
I was approached by DJ Futa this year at Shambhala and asked to hula hoop during his set at the Pagoda stage. Of course, I jumped at the opportunity and was able to get this short video of myself in action. It was 30 degrees outside so I was unable to hoop for a long period of time but wow did I ever enjoy myself!
Light and Motion Festival 4
August 4, 2012
I tought a beginners hula hoop workshop and an intermediate workshop at the 4th annual Light and Motion Festival this year. I had a lot of fun teaching those who are new to using a hula hoop as a prop, and enjoyed teaching those who already knew the basics. I was told that I even taught a few tricks that people had never seen before! What a great experience. I’m very happy to have been able to be there.
Sundre Saloon Glow Party

I will post pictures as they become available.

I was the Calgary Health Show on March 16th from 11am to 5pm with Flow Artz to promote the benefits of fitness with props (did you know that one half hour of hooping burns 250 calories?? That’s about the same as that chocolate bar you’ve been eyeing up).
