Memory Hoops is most accurately described as a Pure Creative type with a Dancers Heart embracing a Multi Media Performance approach.
Growing up in NY Memory embraced as many forms of art as she could fit into a day! Modern Jazz and Ballet, Hip Hop, Musical Theatre, Drawing/Painting, Voice lessons, Madrigals and Piano. Memory studied many different art forms however, through the years Dancing always held a special place in her heart. She eventually recognized it as her purest form of self expression.
As a young adult, Memory shied away from the conventionality of the Fine Arts world and made the choice to pursue an independent performance career. In 2008 she attended the first ever Hoop Convergence held outside of Carrboro, NC and was blown away by the grace, talent, and skill of some of the most accomplished Flow Artists and Hoop Dancers in the World! Memory was completely captivated and inspired by this emerging movement art form, she immediately began to explore combining prop manipulation with her technical dance back ground. Memory has passionately practiced Hoop Dancing for just shy of a decade.
Today, Memory enjoys performing and entertaining statewide and aspires to go national. Her strength as a performance artist is in her outgoing personality, creative versatility and ability to improvise, an intimate understanding of her props, sharp ear for music and a fluid, captivating stage presence. She also is very open to and enjoys connecting and collaborating with artists of all kinds, which has positively helped her grow as individual and as a creative.
In the future, Memory plans to open her own studio dedicated to Alternative Arts and Dance. She aspires to touch others with love and inspiration, provide a creative outlet for the underprivileged , and promote uninhibited creative thinking in the world of dance through her own unique performance pieces.

OUTDOOR Fire Performances are optimal
INDOOR Fire Performances should only be conducted in a Large, Well Ventilated Space with high ceilings
An OUTDOOR 'FUEL DUMP' area will be nessecary to provide a fuel storage/fueling station that is a SAFE DISTANCE away from the open flame performance area
A SAFETY person will accompany the performer to the event and oversee the performance(s) the client may also provide additional safety persons (as desired) to act as security for the fire area.
