What type of hoops do circus performers use?




Hula Hoop acts are wonderfully fun, almost hypnotic at times with the sparkling twirling, rolling and throwing of the hoop drawing you in as you watch it spin around legs, arms, neck, and hips! Hula hooping is a performance art that requires a variety of skills. Circus performers can be part of an ensemble act, or an individual act. Either way they both require a mixture of circus skills, hula hoop and dance skills combining balance, poise and extreme coordination!


Hula hoops became a part of the circus in the 1960’s, Russian and Chinese acrobats were among the first circus performers to incorporate hula hoops into their acts. Tamara Simonenko from the soviet union was one of these first performers in the 1960’s. These groundbreaking performers inspired many artist to create acts involving hula hoops, and they still inspire performers to this day! A notable circus performer is Australian circus performer Judith Lanigan who performs “The Dying Swan – a tragedy with 30 hula hoops.” The Cirque du Soleil is a popular circus that has several shows and artists that feature hula hoops, including contortionist hoop acts! Today there are a variety of circus performers who incorporate hoops into their acts! Hooping has become extremely popular and can be used in a variety of ways during performance!



There are many choices in Hoops and Hoop design these days!! Most performers prefer to use hoops made out of a polyethylene tubing, and polypropylene. Circus performers prefer to have them weighted, which helps for tricks, spinning and overall performance. These hoops are often covered with a fabric or plastic tape, which comes in many colors and variations from basic to glittery, to color shifting metallics! They also will use glow-in-the-dark tape on hoops or L.E.D. hoops that are beautiful clear hoops filled with L.E.D. lights that will mesmerize you as the artist spins and twirls the lights during the performance! Last but not least we have fire hoops that some performers will use. These hoops have wicks on them that you lite on fire so you can amazingly spin a flaming hot hoop to wow the audience!
