Hoopla!Berlin was established in 2005 and introduced Hooping to Germany ...since then using the proven Hoopla!Method™ our instructors have taught 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!

 

Our aim is to make hooping easily accessible for everyone not only performers and dancers. Our goal is to get everyone to try on a proper adult-size hoop and feel the goodness, fun and incredible health benefits that our hoops offer. The hoops we use design and produce are made for adults, similar to the original BiG HOOPs which started the 'new' trend of hooping in California in the early 90s except we make them to be collapsible for easy travel! You should come and try one on...

We produce professional hoops for adults in Berlin since 2005. Our hoops are designed from one piece of special flex-tubing which allows them to be made to be collapsible-for-travel. All Hoopla!Hoops are individually made with care using the best eco-friendly materials sourced from around the world. Travel-hoop prices start from 35eu.

 

 

How to order a hoop...

 

A hoop is more than just a tool or a toy it is a life-style accessory and we believe that it should be as individual as the person buying it ... ordering one of our custom made hoops as easy as 1 • 2 • 3

 

1 • Take a look at our order sheet / colour chart

2 • Choose your colours & size (see what's my size)

3 • Mail your request to: hoops@hooplaberlin.com.

 

Our team will confirm your order and your hoop will be ready in 2-3 days time. You can pick it up in person at our Berlin office or we can have it delivered to you nearly anywhere in the world!

 

 

Ready made hoops...

The WORKAHOLIC Shop

Kastanienallee 60

10119 Berlin

Open Mo-Sa 11-20h

 

* The Neon Collection of Hoopla!Hoops with special neon grip-tape pattern are designed by artist R.Catton (rachelcatton.com).

 

 

What's my size??

 

When it comes to size we recommend EVERYONE to start with a 'standard size' hoop not a PolyPro type light weight hoop! The size and weight of the standard hoop is what make the learning process easy and fun ...therefore making the experience of learning to hoop actually satisfying.

 

NOTE: 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 just to catch it's rhythm ...there is less space and less time in a small hoop to get a move right. * You can still hoop fast with a big hoop but there's no going slow with a small hoop!

 

* Once you're comfortable doing all the moves in a 'big hoop' and you feel the need to hoop faster then and only then try with 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 styles of music .oO°

 

 

SIZING TIP: Forget about the 'belly-button-rule' ...it is a myth! Regardless of your size, the size of the hoop simply determines how fast you need to move your body to keep the hoop going ;)
