Chicago Hoop Dance is a group of hoop dancers and fire flow art performers. Our performances merge beautiful costuming and hoopdance - described as mesmerizing, enchanting, and hypnotic. We specialize in hoop dance, and often integrate veil, flags, fans, fire, poi, staff, bellydancing and cabaret. CHD tailors our performances and costuming to fit the aesthetic of your event. We perform everywhere: private parties, fundraisers, corporate events, universities, festivals, youth focused events, bachelor and bachelorette parties, night clubs, parks, and more!
With 3 ladies in our core group, and more performer friends, we can create the perfect performance for any event from a solo to a large group!
CHD often merges performances with classes in our all ages interactive HoopJAM events designed to get your event attendees moving and experiencing the hoop. Everyone gets a chance at hoop dance fun with a short informal instruction and then an open HoopJAM with energizing and inspiring music.
