Flow arts and Circus is our PASSION!
We are fire dancers, builders, festival goers and lovers of fun and dance. We build props, teach workshops in Hooping, Poi, Fire Fans, Acro Yoga & Stilting, and we put on some pretty great fire shows too!
We have been in business for 10 years and that's not surprising given all the positive feedback we get from our customers. Take a look at our Testimonials!
We love to play with toys and teach you how to do so. In the process of using these "skill toys" you stop thinking about what you have to do today or your grocery list, and instead you become present in the moment. You will be fascinated by how healthy and liberating it feels to live in the moment, to be free of thought, to just allow yourself to BE.
During the summers we travel all over the country going to multi-day music festivals where we set up out booth and sell our circus props and fun festival toys. At a lot of these festival we teach workshops in flow arts, have performers showing off their skills on stages next to your favorite Dj's and doing ambient roaming performance throughout the event.

Melissa has always had a passion for dance. She discovered hoops and their magical powers in April of 2012. After searching ‘How to hula hoop’ and finding hoop dance videos on YouTube, she immediately realized what she wanted to do. A year later after countless hours of hard work and practice, she wanted to take her hoop dance to a new level. She then created the business and performance name TranscenDance. It was named after the word “transcendental”, which she uses to describe how hoop dance makes her feel and the state of mind it creates. She considers herself energetic, motivated, and supportive of others’ dreams. She is now teaching hoop dance classes/workshops, performing, and completing her bachelor’s degree in Business. It is her number one goal to turn this passion into a career to help support herself and her family.
