Every single body should try on a proper adult-size hoop to feel the goodness, fun and the incredible health benefits that hooping offers! We aim to make hooping easily accessible to everyone through our class series, with our custom made easy-to-use hoops and our public & private hoop events...
What is Hooping? It's play, it's fun, it's dance, it's body movement ...but it's also so much more than that! Hooping is a super effective workout for the body & the mind. While you are 'playing' with a hoop, the rhythmic balanced movements required to make the hoop go around the body strengthen and tone all muscles involved from the core out, and from neck to the toes - and when using the hands for off-body hooping, the circular flowing movements hugely improve hand-eye coordination, reaction time and fluid thinking, not to mention it does wonders for your mental discipline ...all this while having fun!
We established Hoopla!Berlin in 2005 in order to teach people about all the goodness that exists inside a hoop and how to properly use a hoop. Since then, using the Hoopla!Method™ of teaching hooping we have taught thousands and thousands of people how to move, groove and work it out with a hoop ...what are YOU waiting for, come and check out a class and see for yourself what the Hoopla!s all about .oO°
The hoops we use (and produce) for this purpose are different than circus/juggling hoops, they are designed specifically to be easy-to-use and to learn with for anyone. Modelled after the original Californian dance-hoops which started the 'new trend of hooping for adults' in the early 90s, we've updated the design by using special tubing and a joint that enables Hoopla!Hoops to fold down for easy go-anywhere-transportability. Come and try one on to see how good it feels... there's happiness built inside every single one!

'Hooping with a proper adult-size-hoop is so much fun - plus it's pretty good for your body too!!'
If you like music and to move your body to it, you will have a great time learning to hoop, regardless of your lifestyle, age, job, physique, shoe size...
...and whether you're an absolute beginner or already love hooping, whatever your hoopability we'll find a course to fit your skill level.
Our Courses are split into 6 sections - L1 is ideal for absolute Beginners or if you're currious about hooping, L2 & L3 if you're totally comfortable in a hoop, L4 & L5 if you're looking to challenge yourself and L6 is if you have Advanced skills:
L1 Beginners HoopFitDance
L2 Hooping Essentials I
L3 Hooping Essentials II
L4 Intermediate HoopDance
L5 Intermediate HoopDance II
L6 Advanced HoopDance & Flow
The courses are taught in a progressive learning format and advance from level to level. Each course consists of 8 lessons and costs 120,00eu per course. In each lesson you will learn a number of new moves and techniques which we combine with moves from previous lessons. The moves are taught step-by-step with two instructors on hand in every class to ensure ample individual attention for everyone. * We do not teach coreographies - in fact we call it freestyle hooping with the goal of helping everyone develop their individual practice - we firmly believe that proper technique is more important than rigid repetition.

What's my size??
That's easy... Regardless of body size EVERYONE should start with a 'standard' hoop - the size and weight of this hoop has everything to do with how easy it is to learn with. * This aplies to all moves not just the basics... If you've tried and failed before, your hoop was probably too small.
NOTE: Please forget about the 'belly-button-rule' ...it is a myth! The size of the hoop simply determines how fast you need to move your body to keep the hoop going ... regardless of your size!
Hoop size is simple physics - the bigger the hoop the slower you need to move / the smaller and lighter a hoop the faster and more precisely you have to move to catch it's rhythm. * It's no problem to hoop fast with a big hoop but there's no going slow with a small hoop! PolyPro & light weight hoops are difficult to learn with because there is less space and less time in them to get any move right.
Once you're comfortable doing all the moves in a 'big hoop' and feel you only like hooping fast then and only then go on to a smaller size hoop...
Our Hoopla!Hoops do come in 3 sizes to satisfy all hoopabilities and speed requirements:
• The Standard - For all abilities - 110cm 700g
• The Dynamic - Intermediate skills - 102cm 650g
• The Trixter - Fast moves & off-body - 95cm 600g
* Ideally you should have all three sizes - different speeds for different moods & styles of music .oO°
