Kate is a mom who comes to us from New Orleans, with jazz and blues etched into her soul, fusing hoopdance and acrobatics into acro-hooping. She instructs individual and group classes to those interested in learning the fundamentals of the hoop. Kate humorous nature and soulful fluidity are both equally embodied through her animated stagecraft. Whether in the classroom or on the stage, Kate’s charm is sure to entertain.
Born in Alaska, Sirkka was raised in Hawaii and was a massage therapist for 13 years until she finally gave it up to pursue hoopdance full time as a teacher and performer with a deep appreciation of the mind/body/soul connection. She also loves to work with children and young-at-heart adults, teaching them through hoopdance that they are capable individuals while exploring their own unique styles of movement.
