Welcome to HulaHoopla®

Hoopdance is an expressive movement combining dancing and hooping. It is a fun way to get fit while working all the muscles of the body, improving balance, flexibility and coordination, relieving stress, pumping up your energy, awakening your senses and unblocking your chi. You will tone up, slim down and get a great cardio workout!

That toy store hoop you grew up with has gone through some major evolutionary changes in the past few decades. Adult-sized hoops are heavier and larger in diameter. The size and weight allows the hoop to spin slower, making it easier to control and learn on. It's pure childhood joy in adult size.
