RHYTHMIC SINGLE HOOP STUNTS- Tosses, Transitions, pop ups, and flips pulled from the tradition of rhythmic gymnastics. In this skill based class Luna will pass on some of her favorite tricks and transitions learned first hand from Cirque du Soleil, and rhythmic gymnastics coach Rebbecca Sukhanova. While some tricks are challenging, and others are easily accessible, all are guaranteed to be dynamic, playful and fun. DISCLAIMER: Over split and head sit not included.

BIO: Luna is known for her fusion of modern dance, traditional circus skills, and musicality within hula-hoop dance. As a coach, she connects with her students through accessible vocabulary, a sense of humor and a serious attitude of positive empowerment.   Luna began her career in 2006, through performing for world-renowned band “The String Cheese Incident”, touring across America to high profile music festivals. In 2008 she was hired by Samsung Mobile to perform in India in promotion of the 2008 Olymipic Games. In 2011 she co-founded an esteemed circus company in Kansas City Missouri, called “MoonDrop Circus”, which is still successful today. The following year, she was awarded “2012 Hoop Instructor of the Year on Hooping.org, and was recently nominated for “Female Hooper of the Year” in 2013.  Every year, in collaboration with her sister, Shakti Sunfire, she hosts the Electric Forest hoop Troupe contest, and the annual advanced hula-hoop immersion; called In-Depth in Hawaii.

Over the past year Luna has been training under rhythmic gymnastics coach and Cirque du Soliel performer Rebbecca Sukhanova, in Pendulum Aerial Arts’ professional track circus program.  In this Portland based company, she has studied hand balancing, flex, adagio, and aerial acrobatics. In addition she has been blessed with the opportunity to perform hula-hoop within the professional company.   Luna sees the acrobat as a living metaphor, epitomizing true harmony of mind, body and spirit, allowing us space to connect to the inner-self  that often gets buried under the tyranny of the everyday.   “Circus empowered the part of me that hid silently behind the words I can’t and today it is my mission to carry on this gift to any and all who cross my path.” -Luna
