Courtney first found the flow arts during the summer of 2009, not long after a devastating personal loss. Drawn in by the joy, rhythm, and meditative movement, a new passion was awakened. Hooping gave her an overwhelming drive and focus she had not found in a hobby before. This simple toy became the outlet to express all facets of emotion she so desperately needed.
Since then, Courtney's skill set has stepped up from playing with one hoop to teaching beginner and intermediate hoop dance classes as well as performing with one to multiple hoops, fans, and levitation wand. In 2012 she began adding the element of fire to her performances, lending her skills to several different performance troupes local to the northeast. Her newest ventures include juggling and fire eating.
Courtney holds a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and works to incorporate her education and life experience into her passion by exploring dance and movement therapy.
