Summer is HERE!! 

Hiya hoopers! 

It’s official, it’s summer! We are so excited to get back in the spin and prepare for all the fun our summer has the offer!

We had an amazing time at Soupstock and Mayfest and have so much more on the horizon! 

This weekend for example we are at Two Roads Brewery for their Road Jam, Black Rock Farmers Market, and Cromwell Farmers Market as well!

Our team is preparing for the summer in every way we know how; fine tuning curriculum, making hoops, organizing marketing, and.. making a baby? Well just Nicole is doing the last one, but as a team we are looking forward to meeting the newest honorary Hoopla gal. 
See you this weekend, we hope! Keep an eye open for us this summer!

We have slid into first place in the Mommy Poppins Best Birthday Entertainer category! The voting ends tomorrow so please KEEP voting Hoopla!!


We also had an awesome few weekends at Mystic Aquarium hooping it up with all of their fantastic attendees! So many wonderful families and brand new hoopers. we were so happy to be back for another year at such a fun family friendly place.

Miss Sarah has been especially busy lately taking the show on the road to Bolton, MA for a Magical Fairy Camp hoop class! She was so happy to share her love of hooping with such an inspirational group of kids, she hopes to do it again very soon.

Lastly, we are so proud to announce that one of our private lesson students rocked it at her talent show last week! She blew the crowd away with her hoop routine to Sweet Caroline. The whole audience was singing along. It has been such a pleasure to watch Alisha grow along her hoop journey and bring the Hoopla to her local high school!

Hello 2017! Hoopla Assembly Excitement!

We are starting off 2017 with such excitement and new things just keep rolling in! We were lucky enough to begin our year at Mary R Tisko Elementary in Branford for a super special Hoopla Assembly!

In a school where hooping is the norm in gym class, we fit right in. Nicole and I met Tisko’s lovely PE teachers at a super cool educational conference this past fall and soon realized we have a lot in common as they were also avid hoopers. It’s so nice to find other hoopers out in the world, and the chance to show off our skills to their talented students was such a great opportunity.

We had a shortened  assembly, only 30 minutes (our usual can be up to 55), but it was jam packed of high energy fun, jokes, and performances. And when I tell you how the kids laughed when we brought out our giant hoop that stands almost as tall as me, (and I’m 5’9″), it was as loud as thunder.

The best part was when their principal even joined in on the fun. Although he claimed to not be much of a hooper himself we all thought he did a great job. Personally, I think he even might have stolen the show!

We are hoping for a ton more assemblies this year! Help us spread the word!
