I am Taylor Zupiter, a Hula-Hoop performance artist, dancer, makeup artist, and costume designer. I attended arts school from 2003-2011, and have been performing as a dancer since such time. Further my Hula-Hoop performing began in 2014. I have performed with Wilder’s event company, This is After Dark events, Scout Camp Arts and Media, Civic Events for the City of Halifax, Future Forest and Evolve Festival. In addition, to performing I have facilitated Hula-Hoop workshops for Youth Art Connection and their partnering organization, The Spot, which is a youth drop in center that supports youth mental health through the arts. Alongside Hula-Hooping, costume designing, makeup and face painting allows for my creativity to flow and gives me a great source of inspiration. Overall, performing in various contexts is a source of passion in my life, and fills my life with purpose and meaning.
