About the Facilitator(s)

2015 Instructors:

 

 Luna Breeze ~ Exotic, energetic, and entertaining, Luna Breeze extends far beyond the acrobatic. As a hoop dancer, her choreography blurs the line between entertainment and performance art - a focus on the magic of illusion and the interaction of hoop and dancer. She is known for her fusion of modern dance, tradition circus skills, and musicality within her dance. As a teacher she is known for her accessibility, goofy sense of humor and serious attitude of positive empowerment through the ring. 

Luna is currently attending circus school at Pendulum Aerial Circus Arts in Portland Oregon, where she studies aerial silks, trapeze, and acrobatics, while teaching and performing circus hula hoop for the school. Her days are filled with choreography, training for performance, and studying the human body to ensure that her students and she advance efficiently, safely and happily whether performer or hobbyist!

 Caterina Suttin ~ Caterina has been hooping for 4 years and in that short time the hoop has done truly remarkable things in her life. She has taught and performed at festivals and retreats all across the US and Europe, including: Hoopcamp, FireDrums, Ignight and Master Ongs Flow Festival,  Flowstorm, Lucidity, The Spin Summit,The Switzerland Hoop Convention, and HoTS (hooper teacher showcase) in the UK, to name a few. Caterina also makes unique handmade wire jewelry. She's been wire wrapping for over 10 years and now takes inspiration from the hoop and channels that into her creations.

Aya Papaya : Since she first picked up a hoop in 2009 Aya fell in love with dancing both in and out of the hoop.

Combining training from various teachers Aya embodies beauty and grace in her dance and brings authentic movement into her flow. Aya now dances with multiple tools, including dragon staff, fans, hoop and feels empowered by movement arts to live fully and in constant exploration of new creative outlets and projects.  She has seen the healing power of movement arts first hand, and is passionate about sharing, performing, and teaching anyone who is interested.  Currently, Aya teaches flow arts and movement meditation, and performs with FireGroove in Los Angeles.
