Catherine Bird is a hoop dance performer, fire dancer, and tribal fusion belly dancer based out of Tacoma, WA. Her love of movement began when she saw fire poi spinners for the first time in 2003 at a small house party. With electronic music as her soundtrack she began to explore the flow arts, delving into poi, hoops, fans, and fire eating. In 2010 she began belly dancing, studying with many fine local instructors and traveling multiple times a year to continue her dance education. In 2011 she started performing professionally with the troupe Flair Entertainment. Since then she has brought her love of fire and flow all over the Puget Sound, entertaining for everything from children’s events to corporate occasions to music video shoots to burlesque shows.
