Indulging in hoops, fire, stilts, aerial-and at times all of them at once, Ali Luminescent weaves an intricate dance of joy and delight. She found the hoop in 2006 and has been growing her movement repertoire exponentially since. Exploring tribal fusion belly dance, Balinese dance, and classical Indian Odissi dance, as well as utilizing a great range of fire and circus tools, all allow Ali Luminescent diverse opportunities to share her whimsy and magic.
