The aim of Hoopla!Berlin is to make hooping easily accessible to everyone! We strongly believe that hooping is not just for performers and dancers... every single body should try on a proper adult-size hoop to feel the goodness, fun and incredible health benefits that hooping offers!
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 hoop off-body, the circular flowing movements required greatly improve fluid thinking, hand-eye coordination and mental discipline. * In our hoop classes we add learning to the equation with great attention to proper body movement.
We established Hoopla!Berlin in 2005 in order to teach people how to properly use a hoop. Since then, using the Hoopla!Method™ of teaching hooping we 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 .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. 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!

What's my size??
It's easy, regardless of body size EVERYONE should start with a 'standard' hoop - the size and weight of a hoop has everything to do with how hard or how easy it is to learn with. * This aplies to all moves not just learning the basics ...if you've tried and failed before try with a bigger hoop.
NOTE: 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
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 ...it's just simple physics.
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 moods and speeds for different styles of music .oO°
