Hoopy Happenings is happy to announce that Lila Chupahoop is our international instructor for HH2019.
Lila Chupa-Hoops started her hoop journey 8 years ago in Paris, France, and it has been more than 5 years since she decided to quit her job to live the life as a performing artist, hula hoop artist and teacher. Self taught, she built a diverse repertoire of performances, including emblematic vintage circusy acts that she plays all over Europe. Lila won her first title at the Geneva Burlesque Festival in 2015 with her rockabilly hooptease, mixing her circus skills to the traditionnal pin-up strip. Burlesque has been the starting point of her career so of course you can see this style quite predominant in her flow and dance. But that’s not all! Inspired by flowarts in general, Lila is attached to a rather technical style and working on various combos from 1 to 6 hoops as well as manipulating a wide range of objects (fans, dragonstaff, whips…).In 2017, she was awarded as European Hooper of the Year, Double Hooper of the Year and Best solo performance video, as a recognition to her work as a teacher, performer and creative artist in the hoop world.
