HULA  HOOPS with Bunny Star

MONDAY 4pm - 5pm 

Hooping is a unique way for children to connect with their individual sense of rhythm, strength, coordination and confidence in a group environment. In creating a learning space to try something different while being physically active and creatively expressive, we encourage children to explore new ways of exercise and movement that involve fun, play and dance.
Drawing on the inspiration and skills of both the circus and dance arts, we offer workshops where children learn a variety of tricks from the very basic saves and turns to more advanced technique and hoop dance moves. We encourage children to take this timeless toy and exercise tool further, to see how it relates to their body and their developing sense of movement.


Bunny Hoop Star is the Director of Hoop Empire. She is a multimedia artist, hoop teacher, and founding member of The Hoopaholics- Australia's one and only hulahoop troupe. She has been hooping for over a decade and now performs and teaches in Australia and throughout the world. Her training includes classic circus hoop technique, American Hoop Dance, Nia Technique /Spirited Movement, Yoga and self-directed dance land groove. With an emphasis on movement and flow her classes range from learning the basics of how to spin a hoop or two... or three or four... to more advanced Hoop Dance moves. She has been teaching the hoopla to both adults and children over the past three years and is accredited with the Australian Sports Commission.
