I'm a creative, interactive, and incredibly fun hoop dancer. I'm available for both entertainment purposes or for a more interactive experience to give you and your friends or your children a short lesson and hoop sequence tutorial! Perfect for a children's birthday party, graduation party, girls night, or even to add a little extra sparkle to your casual business dinner. In addition, I'm also available for festivals, shows, events, and concerts!
The performance alone was breathtaking, a combination of ballet, modern and lyrical dance, and moments of amazing fluidity. She was great with my daughter and her friends when teaching them basic hoop moves and now my daughter wants to take hoop dancing classes on her own. Highly recommend this performer, professional, polite, and a beautiful dancer.

What to Expect
I'm a very advanced Hooper with a unique flow that incorporates tricks and dancing alike- ranging from ballet to hip-hop and pop and lock as well as liquid. I'm able to continue hoop dancing for hours at a time but am also quite approachable and eloquent so any questions about.movements anyone might have I'm able to answer in a proficient manner. If you were interested in a more interactive experience I'm more than willing and able to go over hoop basics with interested group members and eve n teach beginner hoop tutorials and sequences if wanted.
I'm a 24 year old college graduate from Temple University with a degree in dance education. I currently live in Doylestown, and freelance teaching master classes at different movement studios in the greater Philadelphia area. Sharing my love of hoop dancing is truly my passion!
I'm available for anything from performance and entertainment to private or group classes. I have 4 different choreographed sets to chose from as well as the option to bring an extra hooper or two. As far as classes go : I can do anything from a simple hoop-fitness class, to different levels of expertise (beginner, intermediate, and advanced). In lessons, one can expect warm-ups, learning at least 2 new tricks followed by learning a short dance sequence which can or can not (if not wanted) be built upon.
Additional Booking Notes
I've been a dancer my entire life- starting with ballet tap and jazz at the age of 4, which continued up through my college years, though I'd since added hip-hop and lyrical dance to my repertoire. When I turned 22 I was given my first hoop for Christmas and it was love at first spin. I'm so very grateful to my friends spOokey and MinaBear of lightitupphilly's dance troupe, "electrocute" who have been both my mentors and inspiration since day 1.
Song choice is up to you! Can perform to up to 4 songs in a row. Also able to give lessons.and teach quick sequences

Influences & Inspiration
I've had a number of influences in my life. Obviously I played with a hula hoop being a 90s kid. However my main influences are a group of women in Philadelphia who call themselves Electrocute
