About Bunny HoopStar
I am the founding Owner and Creative Director of Australia’s first hulahoop business, Sydney-based Hoop Empire. We've been spinning the hoop fun in Australia and across the world since 2005. I am also the creator of Hoop Kids - a dedicated hulahoop program for kids and adults who wish to teach them, launched in 2014. Having introduced the international “hoop dance” community to Australia, my mission is to encourage and guide children of all ages, skill and size to rediscover the lost art of movement and play.
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Creative Writing and History. I also have extensive experience in reading and writing Western Sun Sign astrology and Mayan 13 Moon Dreamspell cosmology. Beyond the hoop, which has been my main movement practice for the past 21 years and my full time job for the past 11 years, I am dedicated to creative transformation through embodied movement and the expansion of consciousness through art.
Through local classes and parties, online learning resources, community events, exciting performances, inspirational hoop art and the creation of some pretty amazing hoops... my goal is to share the hoop with as many people as possible.
My teaching credits include Hoop Camp California, Spin Matsuri Japan, Sacred Circularities Bali, Hoopy Happenings Australia, New Zealand HoopFest and Illuminate Festival New Zealand. My training includes classic Circus hoop technique, Contemporary Hoop Dance and Yoga.
Drawing inspiration from both the Circus Arts and the international Hoop Dance community, I merge the two influences into high energy soundscape classes and performances.
