Hooping 101


What do I need to get started?

If you have never tried Hoopdance before, start with the 1st DVD in our instructional series, Hoopnotica┬« Hoopdance Beginning Level. Our  DVDs are a great way to learn at your own pace and provide a full workout at home (or with friends). Each DVD even has a troubleshooting  section to help you when you are not "quite getting it".

If you've already done some hooping and are not sure of your level, contact us and we'll help you work it out.

You will need a full sized Hoopnotica® Hoop. A lightweight child's hoop from the toy store is not appropriate. If you do not already have one, you will need to purchase one from our hoop selection online. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

What should I wear while hooping?

Hoopnotica® Hoopdance is all about movement and your clothing should allow freedom for that. We have found that the best thing to hoop in is stretchy jeans, yoga pants, or other natural fiber material. Slim fitting sleeveless tops are essential for upper body work as bare skin is nature's best grip. Try not to wear synthetics such as nylon or rayon, as the hoop tends to slip, making the learning process more difficult.
