When the sun sets and the moon rises, grab your glow hoops and meet us for an evening of magical movement. This class, led by Lauren Shaw of SpinFX, will teach you tricks on how to maximize LED hoop play as well as performance tips to amaze a crowd of any size. We’ll also get creative with synchronized movements and flow within a sea of electric light. This is one not to be missed, so be sure to join us for the unforgettable experience!
(Phoenix LED Hoops will be provided for those who may need until we run out…then sharing takes the stage)
Growing up in Santa Cruz, Califronia amongst the redwood and oak tree forests and the vast pacific ocean, Briana Kai’s music reflects her free spirit with a fusion of roots reggae, funk and world beat. As a samba, salsa, and belly dancer, her music has diverse influence of latin grooves and ethnic rhythms to get you to dance, move and shake. After recording in Jamaica with Junior Reid, the track “Day by Day”, co-written by Briana Kai and her father Stormin Norman (of the Santa Cruz local legend band ‘Stormin Norman and the Cyclones’), she toured with Junior Reid in California, and Hawaii sharing the stage with Katchafire, and Fiji. While shooting the video for “Day by Day” in Kingston, Jamaica, Briana performed the song along side Junior Reid in a concert for peace in Tivoli Gardens sharing the stage with Taurus Riley and other Jamaican talent. Briana Kai has also sang for the ‘Pure Roots’ band and opened for Israel Vibration, Black Uhuru, The Melodians, Don Carlos, Michael Rose, and The Wailing Souls. Having spent time in India and Nepal shooting a documentry “Stuck in Kathmandu” of her journey to take her grandfather’s ashes to the Valley of Flowers in India, Briana blends her worldy experience of culture with her musical influence from her dad, Stormin Norman’s background of classic rock n roll, blues and folk, into soulful songs to open every heart, inspire all to dance and enjoy every moment in this life. To play music is a blessing, and Briana Kai is grateful to share the positive vibrations of peace, love, joy and harmony with all beings everywhere.
Each year since Hoopcamp’s first gathering 6 years ago, the team of Rich Porter and Grant Leonard (multi-talented Hoopers, Architects, Musicians and Builders) along with their awesome crew have brought their creative environmental and architectural design skills to build the most awe inspiring shade structure spaces and stages for all of us to dance under. Their colorful triangular shade sails have set the back-drop for all of our workshop spaces at the Fire, Water and Temple stages. The SpinCylce camp at Burning Man was their creation and for the past few years has been the hub for Hoopers at Burning Man. Hoopcamp is very excited to have them back again to create the magic in our event environment.
