Planet Janet Hoops is a queer multi-artist who has been teaching, creating events, and performing along the west coast of BC Canada for over a decade. Janet grew up inspired by nature on SDȺY¸ES (Pender Island) and currently lives on the traditional territories of the Songhees, Esquimalt and SȾÁUTW̱ peoples (Victoria, BC Canada).
Janet balances work as a somatic intimacy coach and relationship counsellor, organic farmer and parent of two kids by pursuing her dynamic artistic talents. Janet has a passion for supporting the community and sharing circus arts with all people, especially harnessing the healing power of play and therapeutic qualities of expressive arts through programs with youth and adults.
Through her company Planet Janet Circus Entertainment, she spins and throws multiple props, clowns, walks on stilts, dabbles in aerials, while hula hooping and fire dancing are her first loves. Janet weaves together styles of traditional hoop dance with contemporary flow arts and sometimes a side of weirdness and comedy to tell different stories and emotional expressions on the stage. Hulahooping has helped her through many challenging times in her life; the movement, expressing what words can’t, the communities built, friends made and places the sacred circle has taken her have all been part of a magical healing journey that she is grateful to support others through.
Janet is a sought after performer and collaborator for her creativity, dynamic talents and professionalism.
