Tracy joined FireTribe at the beginning of 2016. She fell deeply in love with Flow Arts movement and trained with poi and hula hoops.

She's performed at festivals and events in both South Africa and Vietnam. What once was a hobby became not only a professional, but also a modality for healing and joy in her life. Now that she’s back in Cape Town, the performance nerves have been replaced by a willingness to entertain and a calling to connect through teaching.

Tracy has been teaching hula hoop dancing since 2019.  She is passionate and keeps her students motivated. Her goal for her beginner lessons is to encourage body confidence and authentic movement through hooping. Her intermediate lessons are all about tech, smooth transitions, and combos that will take your hooping to the next level.

Hooping can be sexy, personal, meditative, energizing, freeing or a multitude of other things - but is always rewarding!

Tracy offers Flow Hoop and Tech Hoop lessons for beginners through to advanced levels.
