Can I take my hoop on a plane?

Yes- you can carry them on! I brought 5 hoops, on the plane, on my flight from Detroit to Myrtle Beach.  Two of them were L.e.d. Hoops. I packed the batteries in my checked bag, and brought two batteries on my carry-on.


There was absolutely no problems or questions. Excluding the common question ‘Are those hula hoops?’ Yes, I got that question a lot. I almost sold a hoop to the Security Check Guard! She was so interested and had no cares about the fact that we were holding up the line as I showed them to her without my shoes on. The folks in the line behind me may have been a little irritated but I love telling people about hula hoops!

Back to the point, this is how you get your hoops on a plane with absolutely no hassle.


Screenshot_2016-03-22-19-07-51_201603221943388131.Coil them down and attach them to your bag.

2.Make them easy to unattach and reattach your bag for security check.

  1. Place them in the overhead storage on the plane.



You can also check your coiled down hoops, which will fit in your checked luggage. The downside of this option is that you won’t have your hoops by your side to keep you entertained while you wait for your flight.



If your hoops do not coil down, you may bag them up and check them. You will have to pay a fee for sporting equipment.


Never leave your hoops at home for fear that the airlines will not let you board your plane with them. I researched this online before my flight and found no scenarios where hoops have been any complication at all.


All Poly-pro hoops from Monarch Hoops And Dance come with a easy to use push button so you can simply coil them down and take your beautiful hoops everywhere like I do! We are proud to use the best quality materials, like durable poly-carb connectors and rivets so your hoop will never break under stress. Infact, we are so sure about this that we guarantee every connector that leaves our shop. Find your hoop at www.MonarchHoopsAndDance.com and make the world your stage.


Happy hooping and safe travels to you all!

How do I get over performance fear?

Performance fear can be crippling.


Focus on your hoop, you are not alone up there. Let your hoop put on the show for you.


Try hooping in public, at school, at work, when you see you have an informal audience, aka passerby, whip out that big trick. One compliment two compliment three compliment four you will realize that you are awesome! Many people out there will be receptive to your art. Remember though, it is not for everyone.  C some people just won’t be interested. Not your fault.


Adrenaline is your extra power. It is there to help you make quick decisions fast reactions. When it seems like a time warp.it is to your advantage. Don’t be scared of the heavy heart beat an d racing pulse. It means your body is ready to go!


Lastly, when you cant seem to get out of your head, focus on what is around you. Notice the room, the people, whatever sticks out. This will pull you outside of your head and into the moment.


Get out there and do it
Performing with a hoop can help improve performance moral. Most audience will be so impressed with your hoop skill that after every performance is like a bit of stage fright medicine to help boost the confidence.

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!
