HULA HOOPING FOR SCHOOLS, COMMUNITY & YOUTH PROJECTS
Some of the schools and youth projects we have had the pleasure of hooping with over the years. Sessions have included teaching hoop to teens, children with SEN, playing with the hoop with reception aged children, focus on physics / health / team building.
Super fun classes and workshops for children of all ages, from toddlers to teens.
Emilie has years of experience in teaching little hoopers; in schools, festivals and event settings.
She is DBS checked, has a safeguarding policy in place and can provide Risk Assessments for hula hooping.
Hula hooping is a great way of getting kids to be more active.
As well as getting them moving it can improve confidence as they discover they can do things they did not expect to be able to. It can be a great way of getting children who are less interested in team sports to engage in movement.
Format for activities
We've visited schools as part of Health Weeks, with after schools activities, as a treat for brilliant behaviour and to help schools integrate hooping into their regular playground activities. Getting kids moving and happy is the key - so if you would like us to come to you please get in touch. We're flexible on approaches and aim to work with as many schools as possible to spread the Joy of Hooping.
Staff are welcome to join in and then they learn (and enjoy) the activity too. It not only models for the kids participating, but can help keep the activity alive in the school after we've left if staff have mastered a move or two.
Feedback from classes and workshops
“Emilie is an excellent and creative instructor! Motivating and enthusiastic throughout the class.
Correcting the participants when needed, in a professional and friendly manner. She, has a calming manner about her when she teaches, but still challenges the members to push themselves and have fun.
I was very surprised how effective and fun a hula hoop exercise workout can be. I thoroughly enjoyed the class, and the members did too.”
"The classes are fun, liberating, silly, exciting, tricky, and something completely different.
After a long and boring day at work hooping really gave me something to smile about! It also helped my coordination, something that I didn't think I had any of, but I surprised myself."
"The session gave all children a chance to succeed regardless of previous experience.
Thank you for a lovely morning."

"I learned more in one hooping session with Emilie than I've learned in half a dozen exercise classes with other teachers. It was also about forty times more fun.
