ABOUT US:Comox Valley, Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Tracey Clarke first began hula hooping in 2001 and started teaching others this circular obsession in 2005. Her performance troupe, NOVA Firespun Performance Arts has been entertaining audiences since 2004! Tracey makes hula hoops and costumes and invents games to play with hula hoops. She can safely light hoops, fans, staves and poi on fire and dance with them. She can also keep a room full of tiny children or grown-ups happily playing with hula hoops for hours. She is often joined by her daughter and other hoop stars, Lyndsay and Calico as they move, play, dance, spin and breathe, Island Hula Hoopla Style.
