$50.00 – $52.00
Made from 19mm PE or HDPE tubing, these dance hoops are the perfect all-rounders for those beginning their hoop journey, and those who are more advanced but practicing tricky on-body moves. With just the right amount of sparkle and colour, plus the practicality of two stripes of grip, they are a fun but affordable option for every hooper.
This style of custom hoops allows you to choose:
*TWO colours from the selection of Holographic Sequin Tapes OR Mirror Tapes;
*One OR two colours from the selection of grip tapes (there will be two stripes of grip, one thin and one thick, so these can be both the same or different).
*Please see the photos for the available colours or send me a message as I am always updating my range and am happy to source specific tapes.
Available in two size options:
* 95cm – Perfect for beginners as this size is easy to learn waist hooping and other on-body ticks, especially for anyone who is tall and/or curvy 🙂
* 90cm – Perfect for petite beginners, or anyone else who is ready to downsize from their larger hoop.
All hoops are measured by their Outside Diameter (OD) in centimetres. If you would like to order in inches, please choose the closest size and put your request in the order notes. You can see my conversion chart here.
All hoops come standard with one push button to make them collapsible, unless requested otherwise. For extra push buttons please see the listing in our Hoop Add-ons section. A single push button makes the hoop able to coil down on itself some or all of the way depending on its size and tubing (message me about specifics). It is not recommended that small and medium sized hoops are doubled down on themselves all the way as this can cause the tubing and/or connector to kink or crack. There are techniques to make this more successful that you can google or ask me about.

“WHAT TYPE OF TUBING SHOULD I ORDER?”
-PE tubing is what kids hoops are made from and also the majority of dance and beginner hoops; it is hardy and durable, and comes in several thicknesses for different uses:
-HDPE tubing offers an in-between alternative to the heavy duty PE and the lightweight Polypro. More responsive than PE and more durable than polypro, HDPE is favoured by a wide range of hoopers from confident beginners to more experienced hoopers wanting a little more weight than polypro offers. It is highly recommended for those hooping in very cold climates as it won’t crack as easily as polypro. I currently stock a small selection of HDPE in 16mm (5/8) and 19mm (3/4″).
-Polypro tubing is specially designed and manufactured for hula hoops and is more lightweight and responsive than PE. Polypro is favoured by more experienced hoopers wanting to learn more complex tricks and challenge their on and off-body moves.
