About the Instructors
Laura Aszman is new to Australia from Portland, Oregon and has been teaching hoop dance for a decade. Her dance-focused style embraces sensuality, flow and grace. Laura’s joyful approach to teaching encourages her students to listen and respond to not only music, but to their state of mind and individual bodies; to inspire a unique, liberating improvisational flow state.
Laura has studied under the pioneers of contemporary hoop dance including Anah “Hoopalicious” Reichenbach and Brecken Rivara and further developed her unique meditative approach under Jonathan Livingston Baxter.
Most of her life dancing made her feel vulnerable and awkward. Once she began exploring movement with the hoop, a deeper connection to her body naturally unfolded. The hoop has been by far Laura’s best dance teacher. It is her movement meditation, her passion and life practice.
Donna Sparx is a professional hula hoop dancer who is passionate about bringing the dance into the hoop and sharing the freedom found in play and flow. Recognised globally for her creativity, innovation, flow facilitation and playful approach, she has shared the hoopla with thousands of people aged 2 to 72! Donna’s superpower is breaking down the trickiest, techiest moves and making them accessible for everyone! Donna has performed with the Women’s Circus and at many festivals and events. She brings a passion and playfulness to her work that is infectious.
Her motto: Do it ‘til you can.
