New Beginnings

Dear Hoopla family & friends,

We have had quite the adventure with The Hoopla

Shop in the past 3 years. We are proud to say that we opened the Northeast’s first (hula) hoop shop.

With the opening of The Hoopla Shop,  Celebrate Shelton was born and the creation of our Downtown Handmade Market. It’s where we met over 250 handmade artisans over the course of 3 years, co-hosted over 45 markets, and built a shop filled with love, a sense of community, and a whole lotta hoops.

Our small, but mighty team has evolved, but this is where Alexandra Capaldo and Lauren Dev began. Also, Marisa Caron and Sarah Murphy have been by my side since the day we opened and continue to take this journey with me every step of the way.

After our busiest summer of programming, we have decided to close our little hoop shop to start focusing on our next adventure. We are confident in our choice and have no doubt this was the best decision we could have made as a team!

To everyone who has supported us along the way, who attended markets, bought one or several hoops, thank you so much and keep it coming!

We are formulating the best ways to get your Christmas hoops to you and we will be announcing the holiday markets you can find us at this season later today!

Again, thank you. We will be celebrating our 7th year in business this April and we get the warm fuzzies every single day because we love what we do and are so lucky to spread the Hoopla Love. ❤️

Happy Hoopin’,

Nicole & The Hoopla Gals

Hoopla-ween 🍁🎃⭕️

Hey Hoopers! 

Hope you have your costumes ready, your LED batteries charged, and your plans set in class because it is almost Halloween! What a fun time of year to dress up, get spooky and enjoy yourself. Not to mention it has been such perfect weather to hoop in, not too hot, not too cold. 

Maybe you are running behind on a costume though, and that truly can be scary! Well don’t worry, here are some hoop related costumes to keep you festive and in the spin! 

A classic is a circus performer, most hoopers have this outfit in their closet! 🎪🤹🏻‍♀️

A lion tamer, with a hoop as a prop for your lion to jump through. Get yourself a fancy tailed jacket, a stuffed tiger and your hoop, and you are good to go! 🦁⭕️

Another classic is Sonic the Hedgehog. He is always collecting rings and a small yellow hoop is the perfect way to include your prop with your outfit! 🏅💙💛

Maybe nautical costumes are more your style, a dolphin trainer is another easy one to pull off, with just a wetsuit and a stuffed dolphin and you are all set to hit the trick or treats!🐬

We here at BringtheHoopla wish you a very Happy  Halloween! Be safe and have fun!

Fall Fun The Hoopla Way!

Hey Hoopers!

We are so excited to be back in the swing of things! We have fitness classes running in both Fairfield and Shelton! And our Happy Hooping classes are popping up all over Connecticut!

It has been such a great year, and the best summer Hoopla has ever seen. As we enter into colder months we can’t help but be grateful for the fantastic year we had. We want to thank everyone that booked us this summer and are looking forward to seeing you all again next year!

But don’t forget, just cause it’s a little chilly doesn’t mean we are flying south for the winter! You can still book us for parties, community events, corporate events and anything else you think could use some our signature Hoopla Fun.

Here’s to a Happy Fall Season and for new adventures on the horizon! As always, we sending our love!
