The Hoop Sparx Founder – Donna Sparx
Donna Sparx has taught thousands of people to hula hoop.
Based in Melbourne. Donna is a hula hoop dancer, teacher, performer and lover with a background in Creative Arts and 15 years experience working with diverse communities.
In 2015, Donna left an executive management position to found Hoop Sparx and share her passion for hula hooping.

A word from Donna Sparx:
Fuelled by a passion for transformation and growth on a personal, business, local and global level, I am a born facilitator with an appreciation for the power in play and flow.
I believe in movement, inspired goal-setting, and fun, to create a happier, more fulfilling life.
When asked “what do you do?” my answer was always “for love or money?” So, in 2015 I took a leap of faith. I left a six figure salary and put my hips where my hoop was (so to speak).
I started my career as a Youth Worker and left it as a General Manager of Business Development. I have a degree in Creative Arts and Certificates in Training and Assessment, Community Services and Sound Production.
What does it all mean? It means I get it. I get strategy. I get outcomes. I get self-care, I get stress, I get goals.
I get that at the end of the day, all that is left is YOU.
No-one else is going to create the life you want for you.
I took a leap of faith and dived head first, through a hoop, and into the business of freelance inspiration.
