RVA Hoop House- Richmond Va

The RVA Hoop House

The RVA HoOp HOuse is a community-driven nonprofit organization dedicated to movement arts… particularly Hooping!

It all started with a group of super awesome women and a desire to spread the hoop love. We have created an environment where self-confidence, creative expression, inner strength, and wisdom can flourish. We currently do not have a permanent location but hope to in the near future. See Our Location page for more details.

The RVA HoOp HOuse is run solely by volunteers.

What is Hoop Dance?

Hoop Dance, commonly referred to as Hooping, is a self-expressive movement art form that involves dancing with a hoop. Hoop dance artists proudly refer to themselves as “Hoopers.” Hoopers commonly refer to the hoop as their dance partner, because of the rhythmic bond that is created with one’s hoop while dancing. Hooping can involve technical moves and tricks along with free-style dancing. We’ve come a long way since the days of grapevines, wooden circles made of sticks, and even the most popular WAM-O version of hoops. Hoopers today use heavier, larger hoops that are usually hand-made and personalized with shiny, colorful tape. The days of simply hooping around our waist are long gone, and have been replaced with fluid transitions on and off the entire body. Dance fusion has entered the world of hoop dance to create all sorts of variety like Hoop Yoga, Hoop Burlesque, Hip-Hop Hoop, Fire Hooping, and even Poi Hooping.

The possibilities are endless.

Hoops in the grass

 

Hooping is a part of the world of flow arts, which include an array of skill toys that are used to explore the flow of sequential movements that allows our mind and body to become better connected to our inner drum. Hoop Dance has proven to enhance the lives of all that it touches. To many, it’s a magical mystery as to how a colorfully decorated piece of irrigation tubing can cultivate so many friendships and provide so much joy. Rather than question the phenomenon, the Hooper simply moves rhythmically with the hoop into a place of inner peace and gratitude, in continuous exploration of creative self-expression.
