HOOPURBIA is the world’s first ever urban hula hooping festival. Born in Berlin, the week-long event fuses hooping with yoga, contemporary dance, fashion, music, art and cutting edge technology. Participants immerse themselves completely into a unique multi-disciplinary learning experience, which feeds their passion, determination and desire to connect with fellow members of the global hoop dance community. A carefully selected team of international teachers and artists guide attendees through seven days of intensive contemporary dance workshops, video shoots, music and multi-disciplinary collaboration. Participants are encouraged to express themselves, experiment, and find their own individual style of movement. Evenings are packed with performance viewings, hoop jams, artist talks, flash mobs, competitions, and an innovative performance showcase which features collaborative work between audio-visual artists, light and sound designers, choreographers, world-class hoop dancers, DJs and music producers.
