GIFTED!!!

Patient, kind, loving, understanding, talented...so many adjectives to describe Sarah. She came into an environment of "challenging" children and created an atmosphere of acceptance and joy. She was perfect.

Loved Hooping With Sarah!

Sarah came to a fundraiser I hosted. She brought lots of hoops and her make up. She did face painting and turned cute kids into cute puppies. Sarah also hooped and was friendly and encouraging to those who wanted to try. Sarah was on time, stayed for the entire event despite record breaking heat, and was an absolute sweetheart. Cannot recommend her highly enough.

Response from Hooping with Sarah:

Thanks Tracy. The fundraiser was a blast and I enjoyed hooping with everyone :)

Trustworthy and very helpful throughout the whole process.

When organizing a party you are always concerned that everything will turn out okay. Sarah was responsive and very helpful throughout the whole pre-planning part of the party.
Regarding the party itself, she provided great entertainment for my 7 year old and her friends, by performing and teaching them how to hula hoop. In addition, she also brought each one of the girls their own hoop, for them to decorate at the party and take back home with them!
Thank you, Sarah! They all loved their hula hoop party!!

Birthday Party Face Painting

I needed entertainment for a birthday party that I was hosting for my 6 year old son and 3 year old daughter. We hired Sarah to do some face painting and she did a wonderful job! All of the kids were excited to get their face painted and Sarah knew exactly what they wanted. Thanks for the wonderful experience! We will definitely ask for Sarah's services again.

Overview

Sarah is a whirling dervish of disguise, and provides a family friendly performance. Sarah's act has been called, "the most graceful hoop act that will ever blow your mind."

Hoop dancer Sarah helps families and organizations make their events fun for everyone with an entertaining fusion of performing, games and audience participation. Parties will include a hoop dance demonstration, hooping lesson and open hoop jam for all the guests.

Want all the guests to take their hoops home as party favors? This option is available at an additional cost, which will depend upon the number of guests.

Additional Booking Notes

A large amount of space is required because hula hoops take up so much room. A school playground, large yard or local park is ideal.

Hooping with Sarah

Sarah Maccarelli Jordan has over 18 years of classical dance education and experience. She won the 2001 Star Quest Performing Arts Ballet Competition in Orlando, Florida. Also an accomplished makeup artist and face painter, Sarah is a creative force to be reckoned with.

Sarah picked up a hoop in 2009 and hasn't put one down since. There are hula hoops in every room of Sarah's house."Hooping with Sarah" came to fruition because Sarah wanted to share the joy of hoop dancing in the tiny town of Lansdowne. And because you can't just find an adult-sized hoop at the store, Sarah decided to make those too.

An event planner can expect Sarah to be bubbly and fun while remaining prompt, polite, and professional at all times. Sarah follows the show biz motto: "Early is on time, on time is late, and late is unacceptable."

Testimonials

Thank you Sarah for performing at our wedding reception. You were wonderful! The guests were really excited when they saw you and you truly inspired so many to get up and dance and try to hula hoop. Having you there really made our event memorable. You were professional, prompt, courteous, and entertaining. I would recommend you to anyone looking to do something special for their event. Thanks again.

– Lisa Calderone

Sarah taught 5 weeks of hoop dancing classes for kids and teens at the Ferry Ave Library in Camden, NJ. She made the program fun and interesting for everyone involved. Each week there were more kids interested. I would definitely recommend her to anyone interested in a fun hooping program for kids and teens.

– Glenn Slawsky

Sarah is an awesome teacher! Not only is she fun to work with, but she is a terrific businesswoman. She is very patient and has that wonderful ability to tailor a lesson to the student’s ability and anatomy. I highly recommend

– Tracey Vlahovic

Sarah was wonderful to work with. She answered all questions right away and came to work with a group of nineteen 3rd grade girls. My own daughter is still hula hooping all around the house two days later. She instructed the girls and showed her amazing talent. I recommend her for any group or party. Great time and she was wonderful with the children! Glad we found her. Thanks so much!

What an amazing event this was for my 30 Girl Scouts. They loved decorating, learning moves and fun games with their hoops. Then being mesmerized by Sarah’s performance. I’d recommend Sarah in a heartbeat

– Jackie

Sarah Jordan was able to single-handedly entertain eighteen 8 year old girls for 1 1/2 hours!! Sarah conducted a one-of-a-kind hula-hooping party and the girls all had a ball. The party consisted of decorating your very own hoop, activities and contests and then an amazing hula hoop performance by Sarah. All the girls were enthusiastic, active and engaged throughout the entire birthday party. I highly recommend Sarah for a truly unique and fun-filled birthday experience!

– Rachel Kantor

My students had such a fun time at the hula hoop party Sarah led. First, they decorated their new hoops, and then they got them spinning! Sarah also organized games, like musical hoops, for the children to play. It was an exciting way to wrap up the school year.

– Dee Eckstein

Having Sarah for my 40th birthday party seemed like it would work out really great and it did. I had blankets outside for my guests and Sarah arrived promptly with her hoops. My guests even joined in the hooping fun. It was great to see them feel like a kid again! The music Sarah hooped to was the perfect vibe for my party. I couldn’t take my eyes off the light-up hoops which looked so cool as the night became dark. Thanks for your help with everything, Sarah, and for some awesome party entertainment!

– Wendy Newdeck

Hi Sarah-I just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful performance at Carly’s party on Saturday. The kids loved it and your hula hoop talent is amazing!
