Festivals, Events, Community
“The hoop playspace was fantastic. Donna Sparx inspired people of all ages to get involved
and it was good to see even the teenage boys joining in. A great addition to our community festival
that really got people playing together.” – Leah, Swan Hill Rural City Council.
Festivals & Events
Is your festival or celebration in need of some colour and flair or fun for the whole family? Hoop Sparx offers:
- Hooptopia: a place to PLAY!
Fun, flow and freedom. Giggles, dance, movement…and hula hoops of course!
Fantastic in a festival environment where people are wandering through, an interactive hula hoop play space with a fun facilitator who will engage passers by, teach tricks and encourage play.
Attracts people aged 2 – 70! Runs for 1-6 hours.
- Roving performers:
Add some extra colour and dynamism to your event with a roving hula hooper or two. Highly engaging, impressive and even a little interactive!
- Hoop dance workshop:
60-90 minute structured workshop focused on igniting creative expression through playing with hula hoops. Infused with fun and covering foundational moves and tricks, everyone will learn a hoop dance choreography before they leave. This can run specifically for children and/or for all ages.
- Hoop making workshops:
There is only one thing almost as fun as hula hooping – and that’s making hula hoops! Everyone can get their craft on and create their own hula hoop
The magic of the hula hoop appeals to both kids and kids-at-heart, creating a space for:
- dance and laughter
- inter-generational play
- meeting new people
- trying something different
- encouraging physical activity
Joyspirals: Workshops and Programs
The young people had a ball – and worked up a sweat too! Our client group have especially complex and varying needs and Donna Sparx worked exceptionally well with individuals in the group.
