About the Facilitator(s)

Gail O'Brien, In-Depth Instructor

Gail O’Brien has taught and performed in a global capacity for the last 8 years. Winning Instructor of the year awards from Hooping.org and Flow arts Institute in 2015 and performing at many international festivals, corporate events and cabarets including EJC gala show in 2014.

Gail has trained at Greentop Circus School, Belfast Circus School and with top level professional teachers around the world. She is a dynamic contemporary hoop performer. She uses her background in physiotherapy to break down movement patterns giving her a unique edge in teaching workshops and classes.


  Valencia of Twisted Orbit, In-Depth Teacher

This versatile, vivacious, vaudevillian vixen, Valentina dazzles audiences around the world with her unique vision of circus dance fusion. Sharing her magic in both performance and workshops is her passion and drive. Valentina is a second generation belly dancer who was raised in the Los Angeles underground art scene by her mother, Leela, a successful theatrical belly dance icon. Valentina now blends belly dance with hooping, fire, burlesque and hoop juggling. Her ability to seamlessly combine these art forms gives her a provocative style unlike any other. She is the leader of The Hoop Unit, the Vaudeville Vixens, one half of Twisted Orbit, a hoop fabricator and an event producer.


Bags of Twisted Orbit, In-Depth Teacher

Bags is a professional teacher and performer from the UK who has been formally trained at Circomedia – Europe’s leading centre for contemporary circus and physical theatre. He has taught hooping at prominent events all over the UK, Europe and the US as well as being a teacher on Hoop City and Hooping University. He founded the Bristol Hoop Massive and the UK hoop website the Hoop Hub and has won or been nominated for multiple Hoopies and Revolvies (this year he jointly won the Male Hooper of the Year Hoopie!) He is an innovative and multi-disciplined performer who has a strong passion for circus in all it’s forms – but just at the moment you’re unlikely to find him anywhere other than inside a hoop!



Shakti Sunfire, In-Depth Producer 

An internationally recognized movement guide and an advocate of the Earth, Shakti Sunfire blends her deep love of conscious dance, classical Tantra, yoga, mythology, ecology, and the study of many nature-based traditions into inspiring thematic explorations of Soul.

Hoopstress for the last 8 years running, Shakti's focus falls on the merging world of somatic movement, free flow dance, and tech in the hoop. She is inspired in the creation of creative community space and inside the family VIBE of the hoop community. In-Depth is her baby, and the best party she'll ever throw. At In-Depth Shakti acts as visionary glue, space-holder, dance and yoga teacher and mama. She loves every moment and all the friends made along the way!

You might have seen her dancing on the Wanderlust Festival main stage, or on the cover of Yoga Journal. A true rolling stone, Shakti teaches workshops, leads retreats, and performs all over the world. The visionary woman in her has founded The Rhythm Way, and gotten her published and featured in countless books, articles, images and DVDs. A passionate writer, Shakti dives deep into human experience, exposing universal connection and poignant synchronicity through mytho-poetic narrative. You can find more of her work on Rebelle Society, Elephant Journal and in Origin Magazine.

Luna Breeze, In-Depth Producer

Exotic, energetic, and entertaining, Luna  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 has traveled to India via Samsung Mobile to promote the Olympic games through performance, performed at the 2014 IJA Cascade of Stars, and has worked with acclaimed contemporary circus companies such as Pendulum Aerial Arts, Quixotic Fusion, Madison House, Periplo Circus Convention, and many others. In 2011 she was visionary and co-founder of MoonDrop Circus, a thriving community circus based in Kansas City, Missouri. In 2013 she completed a professional circus training program with one of the most highly acclaimed contemporary circus companies in America, Pendulum Aerial Arts. There she worked one on one with world champion rhythmic gymnast Rebbecca Sukhanova. Luna now a teaches and performs for Pendulum Aerial Arts on a regular basis.
