Lila Chupa-Hoops started her hoop journey 12 years ago in Paris, France and it has been more than 9 years since she decided to quit her job to live the full experience as a 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 traditional 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 flow arts in general, Lila is attached to a rather technical style and works 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 of her work as a teacher, performer and creative artist in the hoop world.
