The Spinsonic Hoola Academy Hula Hoop Class for all levels is a  drop in class every Saturday from 1pm - 2pm at Sam's Health and Fitness, Wolverhampton Road, Oldbury (attached to the Oldbury College of Sport).  First timers always welcome! This is a friendly, fun class where you can learn to hula hoop for fun or fitness at your own pace.  You can learn hula hoop tricks, transitions and work on developing your hoop flow.


We will be in the fabulous Dance Studio (pictured), lots of space to throw (and drop) our hoops!dancestudio

Classes will cost £5 per adult (16 and over) and £3 per child (over 7) - all children must be accompanied by a full paying adult.

No need to book in advance, just turn up.  Adult and childrens hoops of different weights and sizes are provided for use in class, and at the start of each class I will find the right size hoop for you - you can change hoops at any time if you want to try several different ones out!

If you can't make Saturday, Miky Re runs hoophoophoop hoop dance class every Wednesday, at 6pm at St. Columba Church in Moseley, Birmingham and every Thursday from 8-9pm at CircusMASH HQ, All Saints Centre, Kings Heath.

Everyone can hoop! Really!

Adult size hoops and grip tape help the hoop stick to your hips. No dance experience required.  Hooping is a low impact form of exercise and can be modified for all fitness levels.

We will begin with a warm up, and over the term learn waist hooping, hand hooping, a variety of on and off body moves, and transitions that will turn the basic moves into hoop dance routines.  Each session will finish with a mini Hoop Jam, where you can practice what we have learnt to music and ask for help with anything you want to go over again.

Please arrive a few minutes early for your first lesson to fill in the paperwork.

Hoop dance isn't only the best fun ever, it is fantastic exercise to music that provides a great cardio workout, tones your core muscles, improves flexibility and balance, and increases confidence in yourself, your body, and can also be an aid to meditation as you feel your movement within the hoop!

Professional adult size hoops will be provided for use in the class, you can try a few out to see which is best for you.

What Should I Wear/Bring to Hoop Class?

You can wear anything you like, but you will get hot and sweaty, so  loose comfortable clothing and trainers or gym shoes is ideal.  But you don't need any special clothing to get hooping, just come and play!   Bring a bottle of water, to keep yourself hydrated.

The Benefits of Hula Hooping

Hooping makes you smile, makes you forget that this is exercise - it's dancing and playing for adults!   While you are having a good time you are doing fantastic things for your body.  The workout alone releases endorphins that make you feel happy and energised.  Many people find the rhythmic circling of the heavy hoop meditative and calming.   It also builds your core strength, strengthens your abdominals (with a balanced diet, you can soon whittle away your waist!), tones arms, thighs and buttocks, develops balance and co-ordination, increases your flexibility, and can enhance your self confidence and creativity.
