The venue for London Hoop Fest 2013 will be at The Mile End Art Pavilion, a beautiful 5,000sqft building housed inside a landscaped hill, with a long wall of windows overlooking idyllic green spaces, tiered ponds and London’s famous Regent’s Canal! Mile End (Central Line) & Stepney Green (District Line) Underground stations are both close and parking is available.
A QUICK LOWDOWN ON WHAT’S WHAT ! Included in our line-up of London based teachers are Craig the Incredible Hula Boy and Silvia Pavone from the world renowned Circus Space, super hoop boy Nick Broyd, and London’s cult hula hooping artiste Anna The Hulagan, who will all be spinning their hoops for you to learn along with, as well as the wonderful Gems Goddard and new to the teaching scene, Emily Wheeler! PLUS We have workshops throughout the week during the day and evening for kids and adults, beginner to advanced. Please check out our Programme for more info on the classes.
BONUS BITS ! We have just added even more to the week’s event, go to the Programme page for details…but, in short there will be Create your own Routine, a Swap Shop, Silent Hoop Jam’s, performances at our SPIN SHOW on Saturday night (all ticket holders welcome), a fully licensed HOOLA BAR as well as all the rest…! Phew..eat your hoop out or what?!
BEGINNERS – A class that is wholly dedicated to those of you who have either never hooped before, or who have tried in vain; this is a class that aims to have you hooping and having fun by the end !
HULAFIT – An intensive exercise hula hoop class, focusing on toning & strengthening with a cardio-kick!
FIRE HOOP – Get hot, hoopy & fearless and learn how to spin a hoop – whilst it’s on fire!
HOOP FLICK - Movie time … with space for you to hoop while you watch…or just sit & enjoy like a normal person!
CIRCUS HOOPLA – Learn the skills that pay the bills from professional hoop performers.
HOOP DANCE – Like dancing? Learn how to make your hoop an extension of your body and bring a whole new dimension to how you dance.
HOOP BURLESQUE - It’s burlesque. It’s hooping. It’s a little bit naughty, a little bit sparkly and a whole lot of fun! Put on your best pout, bathe in glitter and learn a simple and silly routine with a crowned winner of the World Burlesque Games!
CREATE YOUR OWN ROUTINE - Learn how to put your moves together following the basic principles of dance. We will put a part of one together, you will add to it and then you have 45mins after the class to practise and build on the lesson.
HOOP YOGA STRETCH - Its hooping, its yoga and its stretching – take a class with Roxanne, an experienced yoga and hoop practioner, and learn how to become more flexible and strong utilizing your hoop!
London is home to the biggest hooping network in the UK so it seemed only natural for Anna the Hulagan, hoop teacher, international burlesque hoop performer and ‘London’s cult hula hooping artiste’, and partner, Rowan Bad-timing-Boy Byrne to get the hoop rolling and present the second ever London Hoop Fest after last year’s massive success!
Hooping has become cool – too cool for school in fact! As we’ve got bigger so have our hoops…and trust us, if you think hooping is just about swinging a plastic circle around your hips (or at least trying to), then you are in for a surprise of revolutionizing proportions! You may be looking for an innovative, fun way to get fit, or get social in a circle… whether you’ve been shyly edging towards picking one up or pounced on any hoop in hip-shot… then come and see what London Hoop Fest is all about and see how easy it is to get hooked on the hula like we did!
