Fire and Ice Shows

When January comes along, people in northern climates start dreaming of fire in the middle of all the ice.  Fire & Ice shows are a popular theme for mid-winter parties so we came up with an original circus performance to showcase the best of both worlds.  Using real fire, and LED “ice” props, two characters battle it out to see who deserves to reign over the land.

This fire and ice show is choreographed to music and uses multiple fire props, LED hoops, the amazing visual poi featuring your logo or special messages plus an amazing fire duet finale.

Our hula hoop dancers and poi artists can light it up with glow costumes, LED props, tailored acts and more. We’ve brought our special glow to parties, festivals, corporate events, birthday parties, weddings, nightclubs and more.

This works best in dim lighting, so at or after sunset for outside shows and with minimal stage or room lighting for inside shows.

Dancing with Doubles

A workshop for twin hoop dance beginners

2 Hours

Dancing with doubles, or twin hoops, is a workshop which helps develop the skills and strength for free body movement while spinning two hoops.

Requirements: beginner waist hoop skills and spinning a hoop on your hand.

To Bring: a blindfold and 2 double hoops if you have them.

This is for people who have decided that since one hoop is awesome, 2 must be better right?  This will cover all the basics of double hooping, including on and off body skills.

The general purpose and flow is as follows:

  • blindfold guided meditation focusing on the momentum and weight of the hoops
  • arm and hand positioning, moving hoops up and down the arms
  • planes and keeping the hoops parallel
  • changing directions, forward and back spinning
  • intro to anti-spins and flowers, depending on skill levels
  • grip versus spinning on hands
  • 2 beat weave
  • on body waist and hands
  • intro to splitting hoops on body
  • at least one transition from on-body to off-body
  • one or two fun tricks
  • 10 min play/dance time and individual questions
