Sending out a massive galactic thank you to the Hoopla Circus community, especially the inner circle of coaches and those parents who just go that extra mile for your fantastic energy & assistance in making our 2017 production of Circus Galactica a reality & a success. Together we created moments of utter magic.
Every year I experience this delicious moment at some point during the Hoopla Show, it starts with a smile of "YAY!!!"
The amazement that we actually pulled it off ...turns that smile into a giggle, but the experience is so much more than that, for that brief moment I am in awe of the transformational power of performance.
This year as I watched Amanda's (Zaurack) power walk up the mat to defeat the good guys, the command she had over her movement, the character, makeup, lighting and sound transforming every step was hypnotic then suddenly Sean and Tully catapulted past her in perfectly synchronised side saults just as the aerial girls did there final drop, MAGIC, my soul screams I LOVE CIRCUS.
And for that moment I thank you.
Thank you for letting me dress your kids up in green foam alien heads that I make in my garage, fulfilling my crazy creative ideas, thank you for the opportunity to witness that smile of pride the kids get when they finally land a trick that had all but defeated them. Thank you for the talent and passion of our dedicated coaches, The thank you's could go on and on, here's the last one, when I started Hoopla I never imagined it would evolve into the vibrant community we have today, thank you x Suzie
Term 2 starts MONDAY the 1st of May, unfortunately still limited power available at the Showgrounds and no fun doing tricks in the dark. So looking fwd to getting back into it, we are going to have a magic term, see you in a week thx Suzie.
We will hold A Saturday gala day early in the term as our flood makeup sessions, stay tuned！
Update: Hoopla space is safe, other than a few wet mats & carpet, saved by about 10cm. The red roofed building in the photo is the toilet block. You can imagine the carnage to the poor showgrounds. Let the clean up begin. Thanks for all your thoughts Suzie
NO CIRCUS this week, Showgrounds as you can see still under & the aftermath will take 2 weeks before it's safe to enter, please fwd to the circus community, thank you for understanding.
Our thoughts are with those families who have been affected. See you all term 2 thx Suzie
Poor ShowGrounds under she goes....
You know its time to go when the Caretaker leaves. Murwillumbah Showground just about to flood again. If you know of any other places that are closed or in danger of flooding. Or any safe places to go, please feel free to post and let everyone know. Thanks. FRC.
But of a no brainer but... NO HOOPLA TODAY or TOMORROW, hooping not so good in the lounge room but perfect juggling weather, stay dry circus folk and we will see you on the other side. 🚣☔️☔️☔️
