“I have enrolled in every class! She is an amazing teacher; I've made so much progress since joining. Thanks Safire!” Susan

“You will not find more comprehensive hoop dance instruction anywhere. Safire has a degree in education and that is evident in her instruction. No matter what type of learner you are, she will break it down for you in a way you can understand." Tara

★★★★★

"You won’t be disappointed, even if it’s a class of moves you already know. If you are contemplating whether to enrol or not, definitely go for it! You will find new ways of looking at them & moving with them." Missina Lee

★★★★★

"Safire explains things so well! I was struggling to refine many of the moves that I had learned from random free tutorials on youtube. I find the way that Safire explains things excellent and I have already corrected many of the little things I was doing wrong. I wish I'd signed up sooner as I know I would be farther in my hooping skills by now, rather than wasting time trying to figure out what to do, I would have been practicing the correct technique. Thank you so much - one very happy hooper!!!" Dawn Creevy

Seriously, I've been hooping with Safire for years and if it wasn't for her I wouldn't be the hooper I am today.
