A dear friend of mine had recommended it as a cure for my constant back pain and so one warm summer evening in June 2012 I tried it for the first time: Hoopdance. And just as fast as my back pain disappeared, my excitement grew. Ever since that day my world revolves around those colourful hoops. Supported by my boyfriend Florian and a lot of other wonderful people we try a lot of new stuff and already brought one or another vision to life. In courses and workshops I have been conveying my love for dancing with the hoop since 2013 and through this website I also want to let you take part in my passion and our projects.

But what actually is hoopdance?
Hoopdance does not only consist of spinning a hoop around your hips. It is rather dancing with customized hula hoops. The intense cardiovascular workout activates various muscles and strengthens your balance, your ability to coordinate and your stamina. Hoopdance is not only good for your body, your brain is challenged as well – as you dance with the hoop you strengthen your creativity as well as your motor skills. Plus, hoopdance can be meditative as well. Moving to music can have a relaxing effect, you become one with the hoop and find your own, unique flow. You become fully grounded in the moment.

Looking for the right hoop?
Our hoopdance hoops for beginners are bigger and heavier than the well-known hula hoops from
kids’ toy stores but lighter than fitness
hoops you may know from sports shops. Depending on your height and body type we recommend starting with a hoop with a diameter of 90 cm
or 100 cm and a tubing of 20 mm or 25 mm. For advanced hoopers HDPE- or polypro hoops
are suitable, depending on your body type with a diameter between 85 cm and 90 cm and, depending on your level, a tubing of 19 mm, 16 mm or 12 mm.
All our hula hoops are travel hoops. They can be folded to half their size and therefore are excellent
to take along. You can find more details about hoops in our tutorial for choosing the right hoop.
You can find our handmade hula hoops and a selection of hoop clothing in our online store. Single pieces of our hoops are available in the ECO Store in Linz (near Goethekreuzung). If you buy a hoop in Linz (A-4020) or if you pick it up in our warehouse in Hörsching (A-4603) you not only spare yourself the shipping fee, you also get the chance to try the different hoops first hand. To pick up your hoop in Hörsching (A-4603), order the hoop of your choice online and when choosing your mode of payment choose ”Abholung”.
