Hoopers in Hawaii

I noticed there is a serious lack of Hawaii love on Hoop City. I am hoping as the hooping community in Hawaii grows, so will this group! There are quite a few who live on the outer islands, but we have very few on Oahu. I hope I can help change that!

Hello Ladies, I am heading back to Hawaii in September for two weeks.  Hopefully I will be able to attend a Saturday night hoop jam.  Teresa

There's also a fire jam on Thursday nights that I try to attend. You can facebook Hawaii Fire Artists for more info. They have a DJ and there are really talented performers who perform at the Burn every year. So there are other opportunities out there.

As for dance, I know a little. Shakti Dance Movement is my favorite, they're more fusion than traditional. Bellydancers in Paradise are really traditional. Willow Chang is an AMAZING performer who does both. She's probably been around doing it in Hawaii the longest. Shakti are awesome too, they hosted Beats Antique and performed with Zoe Jakes on stage.


Here's a website for a new dance yoga and meditation studio in down: They have bharatanatyam, but i dont know any other indian dancing classes.

Thanks Alli!

Most likely I will end up working on Saturdays too, but hopefully I can make it to a few jams now and then :)

Do you know of any good dance studios in the Honolulu/Manoa area? Specifically I'm looking for bellydance (any style), bollywood and bhangra classes.

We do still meet at 5 pm on Saturdays on Magic Island at Ala Moana Beach Park. If you need help finding it once you get here, feel free to contact me. I don't make it out to most of them due to work, however my wonderful friends are usually there. They have a FB page that offers updates like if they wont be there due to weather or a performance. If you're on FB, you should look up HulaCoop's

Hi all!

I just joined your group as I will be moving to Hawai'i in a few days. I will be working on a farm for a month before I start school at UHM. Do you all still meet on Saturdays? I'm looking forward to meeting the beautiful Hawai'i Hoop Community!

Hey LadyThrottle, I can't quite identify with your situation, because I grew up here, but only because my parents moved here from Illinois when I was a baby. I lived in Wisconsin for a many years, and recently moved back, and I'm living with my parents. Some of my hooper friends here are transplants from the mainland, so you're certainly not alone. It's certainly an adjustment, and some sacrifices must be made when living out on an island in the middle of the ocean, but its totally worth it. Even if you only live here a few years and move back to the mainland, it will be an experience you will never forget. I hope it all works out for you!

Hey everyone. I have joined this group because I have never been to Hawaii, but I will be moving there this august most likely to the Oahu island. My husband will be attending college there so we will be there for a few years maybe more depending on how things go, how much we like it there, how we deal with being away from our family, etc. I have been fascinated with Hawaii since I was little and I am excited to be going and living there, but before anything is even finalized I am already feeling homesick and scared to leave, but won't stop me from leaving because I'm leaving IL!!! It's not like I love where I am now and my family and I have a strange relationship which is a whole other story to be told some other time. I was wondering how many of you are living on the islands with family on the mainland and how you guys deal with it. :) If everything finalizes I can't wait to meet some of you hoopers on the islands!
