Everybody should feel the goodness, the fun and the incredible health benefits that come from hooping with a proper adult-size hoop!

 

What is Hooping? It's fun, it's play, it's physical, it's dance, it's body movement ...and it's so good for you! Playing with a hoop is much more than just a good time, you are actually getting a super-effective workout for the body & the mind: The rhythmic balanced movements required to make the hoop go around strengthen and tone all muscles involved from the core out, and from neck to the toes; the circular flowing movements hugely improve hand-eye coordination, reaction time and fluid thinking, and the multi-tasking aspect of hooping does wonders for mental discipline ...all this goodness while having fun!

 

We established Hoopla!Berlin and the Hoopla!Method™ of teaching hooping in 2005 to help people get the most out of using a hoop. Since then we have taught thousands of people how to move, groove and work it out with a Hoopla!Hoop ...come and try a class, see for yourself what the Hoopla!s all about .oO°

 

The hoops we use - and produce - are designed specifically to be easy to learn with and easy to use, they are quite different than small light circus / juggling hoops or the large heavy `exercise-hoops´ that you can typically find online. Modelled after the original Californian dance-hoops which started the 'new trend of hooping for adults' in the early 90s, we updated the design by using special tubing and a joint which enables Hoopla!Hoops to fold down for easy go-anywhere-transportability. Come try one on to feel how good it is to have it around...

'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 Hoop Dance&Fit

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 focus on 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.

 

For a consultation to determine which Level would suit you best, for registration information and for current class availability - contact Team Hoopla at classes@hooplaberlin.com ...and if you have any other questions at all about learning to hoop, we're more than happy to help!

 

Course cost: 8 lesson courses 120eu.

Probestunde: Single taster class (15eu).

Intro Workshops: 60min (20eu).

Private Intensive Lessons available by request.

Group lessons & Workshops available for private events // as an activity area at a public event.

 

 

With over 2500 hrs of class time teaching hooping, we've helped countless thousands of people how to find their groove and feel great about themselves ...and if you're reading this we'd be happy to help you too ;)

 

Currently we have 10 classes running a week at two of our locations in Berlin. Levels 1-6 take place in a large bright 250sqm studio in Prenzlauerberg and our intensive Advanced classes are in a quaint private studio in Mitte.

All our hoops are 'travel-hoops' made using a solid joint and a one-piece-design for durability. We use special 25mm tubing that is rigid when opened up for stability but flexible enough to allow the hoops to coil down for easy transport. Every Hoopla!Hoop is made individually with meticulous care at our workshop in Berlin and we use the best ecofriendly materials sourced from around the world.

 

Prices start from 35eu.

 

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 is the reason it's fun and easy to learn with. * This applies to all moves not just the basics... If you've tried a move and failed before, your hoop was probably too small, too light, too big or too heavy!

 

Hoop size is simple physics - the bigger the hoop the slower it and 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!

 

Once you're comfortable doing all the moves and feel you only like hooping fast, then and only then go on to a small 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°

 

OTHER HOOPS: PolyPro type small super-light hoops were designed by jugglers for hand-work and are not so satisfying on-body • Heavy OR Exercise-Hoops are made for waist hooping exercises only and are no fun at all for dancing ...or anything else really :)

 

If you have any questions about hoops or sizing, we're happy to help... hoops@hooplaberlin.com

* Music is an integral part of hooping! *
