Are you ready to wiggle, giggle and move your body?

Learn to hula hoop dance with international hula hooping award winner, Mishie Hoops.

Mishie has been teaching hula hoop dance since 2013 and she is passionate about getting you moving, learning while having fun and being playful. Before you know it, you’ll be spinning around and stringing hoop tricks together in your own little dance!


We love the hoop community! We have grown hoop communities in both Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Bali, Indonesia. Our hoopers in Malaysia recently got together to teach 1000 people how to hula hoop, forming the biggest hoop gathering ever in the country! 

Our Hoop Dream Retreats aim to create a space where hoopers from around the world can come together and build an international network of friends who love hula hooping.


Mishie Hoops is an experienced performance artist who brings exciting visual entertainment to parties, festivals, clubs, corporate & community events.

She brings an engaging, unique experience to your event with fire dancing, LED hula hoop and multi-hoop performances. Mishie can perform solo or come with a team.

Thank you for helping us create a family while we were here and for all the new friends I have made from around the world. We all helped us face our fears of solo travels by bringing us together through our passions.

This retreat facilitated building new friendships so close that it felt like I really had the opportunity to know who the true person was in everyone that attended, and it allowed me to open up in ways I never have and in ways I have always feared.
