Buzz About The Hoop Mistresses

  • "I had the incredible pleasure of having one of the Hoop Mistresses perform during Wicked Faire, a weekend long event, and the audience was hypnotized by her performance. I will definitely have them back in the future, and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for high caliber performers for an event."
