Teardrop

December 28, 2016

One of my highlights of 2016 was having the opportunity to collaborate with another hula hoop warrior – actually, one of the very first hula hoopers I ever met, years ago – the amazing Grace Billings.

Within one month of long distance rehearsals, we created a powerful LED hoop duo for a run of Christmas shows at Bloomsbury Big Top, London, as part of ‘Cirque Extraordinaire’.

Teardrop is a highly-skilled, sophisticated and sassy performance that combines dance and hula hooping with the latest, cutting-edge LED technology. Custom illuminating colours, patterns and graphics are delivered on stage in conjunction with seamless movements and choreography, to create an unforgettable, multi-dimensional visual experience.

I’m not sure if it was a coincidence or through word of mouth, but just before my multi-media performance on the John Bishop Show was released on the BBC, I was invited to hula hoop live on the Blue Peter show…

It was so last minute, everything literally happened within a few hours, and that included running from London to Manchester to live TV, whilst beating a tube strike, in true ninja style… BOOM, HOOP, BANG!

You bet I got a Blue Peter badge for that!

Many thanks to everyone at the BBC Bridge House Manchester, it was great fun!
