Atlanta’s one and only hula-hoop dance troupe debuts at the Goat Farm

Hoop Troupe at the Goat Farm — 12 hoops, all at once!

Hoop star sighting!  The debut performance of the HoopEssence Hoop Troupe on Friday, August 10 was a smashing success.  Never before has anyone brought an act like this to the Atlanta community, and we are proud to be the first.  As part of the Summer Sounds fundraiser for 7 Stages Theater, the troupe delivered a picture-perfect choreography at the Goat Farm Arts Center using hoops in complex group formations.

Dressed in summery Hawaiian attire edged with lace, the 12 lovely ladies of the troupe were all smiles at the special luau-themed party.  Set to the electro-swing beats of Caravan Palace, we brought a modern take on a classic tradition to the stage as we used our sparkling hoops to spin, sass, and dance for the crowd.  In an unexpected deviation from the choreography’s clear-cut organization, each dancer broke out of their lines in turn to show off some of their individual talents.  We had a blast!

It was an honor to perform alongside prominent Atlanta acts, including Blair Crimmins and the Hookers, Davina and the Harlots, Ghost Bikini, Jeffrey Butzer, and the Little 5 Points Rockstar Orchestra.  The fundraiser drew hundreds of people and raised a healthy sum for 7 Stages Theater, which is presenting Dracula: The Rock Opera from September 13 to October 14.  Stay tuned for information about upcoming Hoop Troupe productions this fall!

We are delighted to bring a unique blend of hoop dance and group choreography to the stage.  If you want to surprise your guests with something vibrant that will incite energy and fun, the HoopEssence Hoop Troupe will be that inspiring act.  Book a performance with us for your next event!
