Candice and the girls had a ball on Saturday during their Hooping Hens Party! All 17 dressed in matching outfits and were seriously ready for some fun when they arrived. Mum and Aunty joined in and took a ton of photos and videos too!
This hens party had it all - lunch and drinks first in Surfers Paradise, a hula hooping workshop that everyone could enjoy, then out to Broadbeach for a night on the town.
What more could you want?
If you're looking for a fun, engaging and mentally stimulating activity to offer the kids for your school holiday program, circus workshops are the best way to entertain and educate your group. Not only are circus workshops super fun, but they are proven to be beneficial, giving kids the chance to exercise their skills in team work, co-operation, coordination and creativity in a non-competitive and rewarding environment.
Puzzle Dust Circus offers programs in Byron Bay, Gold Coast and Brisbane and our instructors come to your school, OSHC or community centre and run 45 minute circus sessions for up to 25 kids in each group. If you have a large group we will come for a few hours and run multiple sessions. Its best to group your children by age so the instructor can provide the best activities to suit their psychomotor abilities. If you have a time limit we can send multiple circus instructors and run one large session divided into groups and do a round-robin style session.
Circus skills/ activities include:
"All the feedback we received was wonderful and my staff here were so impressed by how Puzzle Dust Circus handled the crowds!" - Moreton Bay Libraries
Are you looking for unique entertainment for your wedding day? You only get one chance at the perfect day and the beautiful beaches in Byron Bay on Australia's stunning East Coast are the perfect backdrop to our awe inspiring roving and feature act entertainment. Just think how incredible a romantic two-person fire show will look as the sun goes down over Belongil Beach! Or the warm glow of a fire twirler to meet and greet your guests as they arrive at the reception centre, or mingle for drinks by the pool. Fire performers bring romance, ambience and atmospheric beauty to every event and will add that extra special something to your wedding photos! Our performers can safely pose for photos with the bride and groom before or after their fire show, immortalising your incredible Byron Bay wedding experience on film forever.
What should you look for in a fire entertainer?
You want to make sure your fire performers have Public Liability Insurance and are professionals with years of experience before booking. The last thing you need is a fire disaster on your wedding day due to booking a cheap amateur! Definitely go with the experts on this one. There is very minimal risk with fire shows if you use experienced and professional local fire performers. You also want to think about how your photos will look and book entertainers with costumes to suit your wedding theme and venue backdrop.
What about your hens party?
Perhaps you are looking for a uniquely Byron hens party idea. Why not try a fire twirling beach workshop? What a fantastic and totally Byron hens party idea!! The girls will have the chance to learn to spin fire with a variety of props, from fans to poi, and then light the props on fire on the beach. Our instructor will take photos and film you with your camera so you can share your amazing fire performance experience! Continue the theme at your wedding with a mind blowing, spectacular fire performance, such as our wedding performance partner duo Wild Fire.
Where better than Byron Bay to teach Hoop Dance classes?
Thanks to the incredibly creative team at Blue Lotus Dance Studio on Jonson St in the centre of Byron Bay, we now have the chance to share a new 6 week Hula Hooping with Movement & Flow course for all levels and abilities.
Not only is hooping a great way to stay fit, tone and strengthen your core, Hoop Dance uses bigger, slower hoops so anyone can do it! Plus, its super fun and addictive. Just ask celebrities like Beyonce, Liv Tyler, Kelly Osbourne, Emma Stone and even Michelle O'Bama.
Come join us on Wednesday nights at 6pm! Contact Blue Lotus for bookings :)

Ok, here’s the thing… I want to stay fit and healthy and I want a body like Pink's but I hate going to the gym. I like freedom and flexibility, I like being outside on sunny days and I love being around people who are open minded and free spirited. These are the things I love about Hula Hooping. If you want to keep fit and active, laugh yourself silly, blow off some steam and challenge your mind at the same time as your body, then hula hooping is a much better option for you than the gym. If that’s not enough to convince you, here are some more great reasons:
1. Hooping is cheap or free – the Gym is not
Don’t you hate the heavy handed sales pitch at the gym? Contracts, hidden costs, membership fees, forms, direct debit… the list goes on. No thanks, I’ll buy my $35 hoop and then have endless exercise and fun at my fingertips for free forever instead! Shhhyeah, I think so.
2. Complete freedom to exercise anywhere and anytime
You can take your hoop anywhere any time and get your hooping fix. And trust me, once you’re hooked you’ll want to!
3. The emphasis is on FUN not body image
No mirror gazing and fat pinching here! With hooping it’s just fun tricks, feel-good moves, empowering challenges and laughing while learning
4. Abs of Steal without the pain
What’s this ‘no pain, no gain’ rubbish? I’ll take a 6 pack from power hooping to my favourite music any day over sit ups, crunches, and other repetitive painful exercises.
5. Social or Private – you choose
If you want to meet open minded, fun loving people then a hoop class is for you! My students often end up hooping regularly together outside of class and form lasting friendships based on fun and play. If you like to exercise solo, learning at home with a DVD or practicing in a quiet park or the back yard with your headphones on is a great option too.
Breathtaking fire shows are available for booking now for your New Years Eve event, Christmas party or end of year celebration. We have trio act Rhythm of Fire for larger events, duo fire performers Wyld Fire for any size event and solo fire performance as well.
We don't offer fire breathing in our fire shows because its very dangerous to the health of the fire performer and simply not worth the risk. This is the case for fire performers in Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast and Byron Bay. We achieve the same effect, however, from a fire twirling 'burn-off', throwing the fire stick into the air with a backspin and plenty of fuel. Big bang for your buck and no cancer for our fire twirlers!!
