About

Sharing the Gift of Hoopdance

From the very beginning, my hoop designs were ideas that stuck in my mind like an image I wish I could draw. I had a hard time finding affordable hoops - and little to NO clue what I needed to buy in the first place. I would work my job after school for a month and save up to buy the tape. I continued to buy tapes with very little direction about their ultimate purpose.

Maybe it was to be certain I'd have the right colors for the next hoop design or maybe I was just collecting them like the porcelain gnomes that adorn my garden. I think I just loved shopping online! It wasn't my intention in the beginning to be a hoop creator. It fell from the sky (by stork, as it were).

Before my first daughter was born, something about being pregnant launched me into this creative frenzy. I crocheted, baked (and ate), and my tape collecting went into overdrive. I finally had the stock I needed to start a nice part-time hobby of making dance hoops for others. The blessing of my second daughter has further inspired me to turn this hobby of mine into a business which I had no idea could be so fantastically satisfying. I feel truly blessed to stay at home and still make a living doing what I love.

I know this world of hoopmaking has a lot of creative individuals and I'm honored everytime someone chooses me to make their hoop! These hoops are both durable and inexpensive because I want to spread the joy of what hoopdancing can bring! I stand behind my product that will sustain a few thousand drops to the ground but not break the bank.

More importantly, I want my customers to feel they purchased a hoop that will inspire them to keep dancing and moving.

Thank-you for checking out Dance Hoops! I am a stay at home mom and making hoops is what allows me to help support my family. My partner does all the packaging and quality control and I make the circles perfect and tape them even and pretty with my poignant spatial skills. I started making hoops almost a decade ago and love having hoops be both my canvas and my daily practice physically and spiritually.

Feel free to inquire about sizing so that we can find the perfect fit for your hoop journey. I also have a flow chart here: http://tinyurl.com/hoopchart If you don't see something you're looking for give us a shout out and we'll do our best to make it happen!

<3~When I have a hoop order I turn on some music and my daughters and I sing along and dance to the funky beats while I make the hoops! She tapes onto the piles of untaped hoops with my spare tape and says "Wow mommy, the lady's going to love it" and I know she's right. You will! (Ladies AND gents of course.) These hoops are infused with liveliness, joy, and strength! Blessings to you and yours!

<3~Dont' know any tricks? Don't know where to start or what tricks even look like? I have a hoop video that I like to call the ABC Hoopdance, hoop moves with links to original videos from A- Z here:

~~~~~~~~~~
<3~Please note that hoop orders over 1 hoop may take longer to process depending on the number of hoops ordered. Please contact me if you need your hoop by a certain date and I will do my best to accommodate your time frame!

<3~All vinyl/glitter tapes will be edged with durable grip tape (see current designs or make up your own with my budget/custom listings!) This keeps your hoop looking fancy and fresh through months of drops and tosses!

<3~Not sure about a size? The hoop should be based off both your waist measurement AND your height, see a video I made here titled "Hoop Sizing for EVERY BODY" (copy/paste url into address bar):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-Pquxk1LKI

<3~As a general rule, 1.1 x your waist in inches (pant size) will render a fast hoop. 1.2 x your waist is medium speed and 1.3 x your waist is a slow speed. You'll want a slow speed if you are just starting out! I do make hoops over 44", just shoot me a message regarding the pricing!

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

♥ Visit http://dancehoops.com/hooptubingflowchart/ to help you narrow down which style of hooping you are interested in and the tubing that corresponds with that style!
♥ Waist hooping and hoopdancing with tricks are sometimes easier with specific tubing and diameters. If you need assistance just ask!
♥ Don't follow the old addage of "belly button height". Since not every person has the same waist size we base hoop diameter off of your waist in inches (like a pant size).
♥ 1.1 x waist = fast/advanced
♥ 1.2 x waist = medium/intermediate
♥ 1.3 x waist = slow/beginner.
♥ We make hoops ANY DIAMETER! If you need something smaller or larger than the listed sizes shoot us a message.

Care instructions

♥ Remove the bubblewrap and vinyl tape from your hoop . This video covers the assembly process of collapsible/coiled/shrink with me hoops: http://tinyurl.com/assemblehoop
♥ Push Button Hoop: Uncoil your hoop and let it "breathe" on a flat surface for a few hours (this helps relax the plastic after shipping as a tight coil). Insert the male push button end into the female end. If it is a tight fit try twisting and pushing at the same time. You can also apply a dab of coconut oil! The push button will emerge through the hole visible in the female end.
♥ Coiled / Friction Fit: If the hoop is warmed it is easier to connect the coiled hoops. Sunlight for 30 minutes or 30 seconds of a hair dryer will help to warm the plastic. Hair dryer works!

Wholesale availability

♥ Spend over $100 and get 10% off "10PERCENTOFF100"
♥ Spend over $250 and get 15% "15percent15"
♥ We have several wholesale listings also which offer up to 20% off!

What is the difference between push button, collapsible, or coiled hoops?

3/4" PE "beginner" hoops come in three different styles:
♥ Push button - Your hoop comes with a push button so it can be opened up and coiled small for travel/transport.
♥ Collapsible - Available on sizes 36" and up! These are also called "infinity travel hoops" because they fold down like a windshield cover into a figure 8 then down again into a small circle 1/4 its original size. So a 40" hoop will shrink down into 2 20" circles which are connected by rotating connection points.
♥ Coiled hoops - This style of hoop is a single piece of tubing with a barbed fitting. Once it arrives you assemble the hoop (instructions included on receipt) and then it will become a full size hoop that cannot be taken apart or made small

Specs for HDPE, PE, Polypro?

♥ PE 1/2" 125 psi: weighs a little less than a pound for 40". Similar size to store-bought hula hoops. Thickness: 3/4", (like your thumb/nickel)
♥ PE 3/4" 100 psi: weighs around 1.25 pounds for 40". Thicker than store-bought hula hoops. Thickness: 1.1", (like your big toe/quarter)
♥ PE 3/4" 160 psi: weighs around 1.6 pounds for 40". Thicker than store-bought hula hoops. Thickness: 1.25" (a little larger than your big toe/50 cent piece)
♥ HDPE or Polypro 1/2": weighs around .5lb for a 33" Thickness: 1/2", (like a pencil/pinky)
♥ HDPE or Polypro 5/8": weighs around .6 for a 33" Thickness: 5/8", (like a dime/index finger)
♥ HDPE or Polypro 3/4": weighs around .75 for a 33" Thickness: 3/4" (like a nickel/thumb)

What are the benefits of hooping?

♥ Hooping can burn up to 800 calories an hour!
♥ It doesn't stop as an awesome core workout - it is also a creative outlet as an individual or performance art.
♥ You can unlock tricks and develop your own style of hoopdance through the hours and hours of Youtube footage or by finding a class nearby.
♥ Thousands of people are hooping, come see what its all about!

Gift wrapping and packaging

♥ We can gift wrap your hoop with brown paper and a gorgeous satin ribbon for a small extra fee of $5.
♥ When it arrives simply remove the outer shipping plastic/bubble wrap and give the gift of hooping!

Do you measure OD or ID?

♥ We measure our hoops with OD (Outer Diameter). To calculate OD with a specific ID (Inner Diameter) in mind, simply add the thickness of the tubing you are getting x 2 to the tubing diameter.
♥ So if you want a 30" ID 3/4" thick HDPE hoop, you will add 3/4" x 2 = 1.5" to your 30" ID. 30" + 1.5" = 31.5"
♥ If the listing only shows 31" or 32" just make a comment you'd like a specific half size so the hoop is a perfect fit!
