Erin Shredder is a California native who grew up in the Santa Cruz Mountains between the giant redwoods and the beautiful waves of the Santa Cruz coastline. In 2004 Erin Shredder was moved deeply while watching Hoopalicious perform at Burning Man. With this newfound inspiration a new purpose materialized and a love affair with the hoop ensued. Shredder Hoops was born. Thriving on adventure and self-discovery, this hoop artist extraordinaire has a passion for circles and beauty and a demonstrated mastery of both. Erin Shredder is a professional circus artist who spends much of her time spinning on the aerial lyra, deftly manipulating any number of hula hoops (sometimes on fire), and lowering the jaws of the general populous.
