Welcome, Florida hoopers! If you are looking to connect with other area hoop dancers, then you've come to the right place. Abby from Hoola Monsters is the moderator of this group (based in the Tampa Bay area). Feel free to check out Hoola Monsters for events, classes and workshops in Tampa, St. Pete, Clearwater and the surrounding areas.

New to the West Palm/ Delray area and looking for some local flow friends.... where do the South Florida hoopers hang?? :)

Where in St. Augustine can I find a studio to hoop in? I haven't been able to find anything yet! Any suggestions? Just a big inside space with mirrors is preferable... It's been awfully hot, wet and muggy around here and my home isn't exactly sized for a hoop to swing around in... Haha.

Hey hoopers! If any of you are in Orlando, I'm holding two impromptu workshops this Friday and Saturday. Friday's is a Go-Go Hoopdancing workshop, 2 hours, and Saturday's is a Tribal Belly Hoopdance workshop, 3 hours. Here's the FB group link with more details, or you can private message me here:!/events/343561009105058/

Hoping some of you can make it!

Much love,

Hey Florida Hoopers! I'm coming to you! And I'm bringing Bags from the UK to teach workshops! We have Sarasota workshop details confirmed, you can find them here: Ft Lauderdale and Jacksonville details are still being confirmed but if you join this FB event, you'll know as soon as they're announced!

florida geography: clearwater is west coast; west palm, ft. lauderdale and miami are east coast; driving time is a few hours. east-coast hoopers! check out the "miami hooping network" facebook group. also miami hoopdance and drum. i know that these both say miami, but theyre for networking south-florida hoopers. :) the community is growing daily...keep the faith!
