Wakarusa Music Festival: Hoop Performer/InstructorI grew up in Missouri, the midwest of the US. One of my favorite festivals to share my love for hoopdance was always at Wakarusa. Hired through my good friend and mentor, Luna Breeze Blakeman, for Brett Mosiman, I have been teaching and performing at this festival every year from 2009-2012. In my move to the west coast, I missed the magic in 2013, and am very excited to be invited back. This time I will be working with my also very good friend and mentor, Michelle Schaeffer (aka Mishi) of the STL Hoop Club and our performance troupe, Cosmic Collaborative out of St. Louis, MO. Really looking forward to sharing with my stomping grounds once again. *Are you hosting a an event and want an amazing group of talented people to perform fire, stilt-walking, hoopdance, acrobatics, aerial AND/or host mind-blowing workshops for your patrons?

Garnish: Burning Man Conclave Video ShootI am honored and excited to once again be a part of this amazing group of fire enthusiasts. As section lead with Melody Kay for Hoops, we choreographed a 2.5 minute dance including double and triple fire hoops, fresh movements and formations, and a powerful message of magic! Our video is to be reviewed by the board, and if accepted, we will perform in front of the man as it burns for our seventh year in a row! I am bursting with inspiration to share this work with my beloved Burning Man community. I also plan to perform routine acrobatics and fire fans. Fire on! See you on the playa~ *Are you delighted at the thought of hiring myself and/or my troupe of fire artist extraordinaires? Please email SurkaNoelle@gmail.com to discuss a perfect event for you! Thank you Lightning in a Bottle! I had an amazing time performing Fire Hoop Dance with Faeryn Rose at Amori’s Casino. Bravo to all the talent, friends and family that made the event so magical. I love you!
