Instructor Biography

Sarah Maccarelli Jordan, Teacher & Copy Writer

When I told people I was leaving my stable job as a Social Worker in 2009 to pursue my passion for hoop dance, they told me I was crazy. Since then, I've sold thousands of hoops, taught hundreds of hoop dance classes for children, and been featured on TV and in major publications. Now my students are teaching this curriculum worldwide.

A former Esthetician and Makeup Arist, I have a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology. I've studied marketing and sales for more than half of my life.
