About

A World Class Act of Love~ by a touring gypsy and the artists she meets along the way!

My shoppe was inspired by my travel and experiences as a performance artist. As dance props and costumes were required, I began making all of my own items. My family, friends and students needed props and costumes as well; this planted the seed for me to share my wares. I find great enjoyment in facilitating others dreams to come true, as performance and dance have been a powerful catalyst in transforming my life to be happier and healthier.
I am driven to always improve my work and evolve with the times. I find my craftsmanship specialties to include daytime hoops, custom costume accessories and other wearable art.
At Surka's Circus, I am open to listing collaborations with other artists in support of shared inspiration and growth. It is also a great way to connect and promote the collection of artisans I meet along my travels. Please email SurkaNoelle [!at] gmail.com to inquire about artistic collaboration.

Thank you for checking out Surka's Circus. I appreciate you supporting my work as well as the collaborating artists!

INFO ABOUT HOOP DANCE AND PURCHASING DANCE HOOPS~

~SURKA'S CIRCUS DIAMETER HOOP SIZE OPTIONS~
Collected over my last four years of teaching and performing hoop dance, I have experienced the following diameter sizes to be typically used as I have expressed:
Above 42 inches: Tandem hoop. Used for two people inside the hoop at once.
38-42 inch diameter: Beginner Adult. Best with 3/4 and 1 inch tubing.
34-38 inch diameter: Advanced Adult, Child over the age of ten. Best with 1/2 inch pvc tubing, but 3/4 can be used as well. 5/8 and 3/4 in polypropylene.
28-33 inch diameter: Pro Adult, Child under the age of ten. Best with 5/8 and 1/2 inch pvc tubing, 5/8 and 3/4 polypropylene.
18-25 inch diameter: Any skill level, Toddlers. Miniature Poi and Isolation hoops used off-the-body. Best with 5/8 and 1/2 inch tubing, 5/8 and 3/4 polypropylene.

As a beginner, I recommend measuring from the ground up to your belly button for the approximate diameter/size of your first on-the-body hoop. The bigger the hoop, the slower the revolutions are circling around your body as you dance, allowing you more time to flow through each movement.

If you are not a beginner, know that even moving down an inch from your current hoop will speed up the revolutions and feel different to your body's muscle memory. The more you learn, the more experimentation in different hoop sizes you will want to explore. This will expand your range of movement possibilities.

~SURKA'S CIRCUS TUBING OPTIONS~
~3/4 inch 160 psi PVC: Used for my exercise hoops. The heaviest hoop we offer. Good for massaging the body, building endurance, and creating a slower, moving meditation aerobic workout. Typically suited for Adults only.

~3/4 inch 100 psi PVC: Used for adult beginner hoops. Perfect for a high-calorie burning aerobic dance workout! Typically suited for Adults or children over the age of 10.

~1/2 inch 125 psi PVC: Used for my advanced dance and miniature poi hoops. Good for off-the-body dance, a high-energy aerobic dance workout, the advanced dancer looking to go pro. Typically suited for adults wanting to create an off-the-body arm workout, advanced dancers, performance, pint-sized beginners (children under the age of 10).

~1/2 and 5/8 inch polypropylene (polypro): Used for my polypro hoops. The most responsive hoop to your movement I offer! This hoop is what I personally use for daily practice and performance. A must have for all hoop lovers! Typically suited for professional performance and advanced dancers but I have found most to enjoy the joys of polypro.

*Please note that although my exercise hoops are the heaviest Surka's Circus hoops available, they do not always create the highest calorie burning workout. The heavier the hoop, the slower it rotates around your body. The more you move, the more calories you burn. Therefore, a smaller hoop size/tubing may actually offer you a better workout.

~SURKA'S CIRCUS TAPE OPTIONS~
~Duct: Offers a slick feel, adds weight to hoop
available in these prints: cheetah, zebra, pink zebra, tie-dye pink, tie-dye purple, black and white checkers, skull and crossbones, paint splatter, flames

~Vinyl/Electrical: Offers a slick feel, adds weight to hoop.
Available 3/4 inch wide in these colors: red, orange, yellow, green, navy, violet, brown, clear* white, black
*Clear vinyl tape can be used as a protective covering over light reflective tapes.

~Gaff/Fabric: Offers a grippy feel, adds weight to hoop.
Available 1/2 and 1 inch wide in these colors: red, burgundy, yellow, olive green, dark green, teal blue, electric blue, navy blue, violet purple, black, white, tan, brown, fluorescent* pink, fluorescent orange, fluorescent yellow, fluorescent green

*1/2 and 1 inch wide fluorescent tapes glow under UV (blacklight)

~Holographic/Light Reflective tape: Offers a slick feel, almost unnoticeable weight added to hoop.
Available in almost every color imaginable! Check out my product photos to see what I mean :)

~High Energy Glow tape: Offers a slick feel, adds some weight to hoop, glows in the dark for ten hours after being charged in artificial light for 30 minutes!
Available in the following prints: plain glow, leopard, zebra

~SURKA'S CIRCUS COLLAPSIBLE HOOPS~
~Infinity: Available for 1/2, 3/4, and 1 inch pvc hoops. I create these hoops with two connectors. The hoop can then be broken down into seemingly two smaller hoops by way of folding/rotating itself into a figure 8 and then in half again. If these hoops are collapsed incorrectly, they will kink! I recommend collapsing it only when needed, by hand of the hooper. :)

~Push-Button: Available for polypropelene, 1/2 and 3/4 inch pvc hoops. I create these hoops with a push-button connector. This allows the hoop to be taken apart, then coiled down into a smaller size.

~SURKA'S CIRCUS HOOP CARE INSTRUCTIONS~
My hoops are durable and professionally constructed. They last a long time with proper care. The most important way to care for your hoop is to be conscious of your dancing space:
*If you hoop on a soft/smooth surface such as grass, carpet, or wood flooring, your hoop will be less likely to get scratched or damaged when it falls to the ground. (The more you drop your hoop, the more you're learning! + these types of surfaces are best for your joints when dancing!)
*If you hoop on a rough surface such as concrete or gravel, it is likely to appear worn and scratched more quickly.
*Please refrain from leaving collapsible hoops collapsed, especially in a hot car. This may cause the hoop to warp permanently.
*Keep all hoops in a cool climate. When hoops get too warm, they can lose their shape. Do not fret, hoops can easily be re-shaped by your own two hands.
*Confucius say: If you love your hoop, your body will love you. If you love your body, you will care for your hoop. :)

~THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN'T DO~
These hoops are not your local dime-store hoops. They are hand-made with high-quality materials to ensure an energizing experience! Any size, weight, and athletic ability can spin these hoops. The subtleties of the body will emerge as you practice, creating or building a strong sense of rhythm and artistic expression. The hoop shows you your own unique dancing style while you work out!

~AFFIRMATIVE BLISS~
As a professional touring performer, I personally use the hoops I offer every day! Here's how:
~Fancy 1 inch pvc exercise hoop to massage my entire body, build endurance, and enjoy an overall aerobic workout.
~Beginner 3/4 inch pvc hoops to teach most classes and private lessons.
~1/2 inch pvc hoops to practice multiple on the body hooping.
~Poly pro hoops for flow practice, aerobic dance and performance.
~Miniature poi hoops for doubles and specialty skills.
How do YOU use your Surka's Circus hoops?
