Dance and art invite us to viscerally tune in to the great flow of life-force energy that moves and flows in a surprisingly organized and intelligent way: in pulsating partnership. The formation of stars, the growth of plants, even the waves of emotion and energy move from deep inner connection to outer expression and back again. Radiant Hoopdance™ is a proprietary hoopdance movement that is spiraling into the hearts and bodies of people all over the world. As a facilitator of the journey, Shakti Sunfire skillfully interweaves challenging trick technique, drills, circuits, mysticism, and mythology, with the basics of this pulsation in dance. All of which will challenge you, empower you to laugh often, and to move in the fullness of unique authentic expression.
