Your teachers for the May TADAH Hoop Intensive 2021 are….
Emma discovered hooping in 2007 while she doing her PhD. She hung up her lab coat in 2010 and took the leap into full time hooping. She has never looked back! Emma is a hugely experienced teacher and is known internationally as a master of wedgies and twin hoops (among other things). Emma is now based in Bali, Indonesia but it’s hard to pin her down to one place 😛 If there’s hoopers, she’ll be there 🙂 A key player in the growth of the outstanding Bristol Hoop community, Emma has since had the opportunity to learn from and play with some of the world’s leading hoopers during her travels around the world. Emma’s combination of high technical expertise, extensive teaching experience, enthusiasm for sharing and love of laughter make her hard to forget! Emma was the winner of Teacher and Fire Hooper of the Year in the 2016 Hoopies, UK Hooper of the Year 2017 and is the creator and main coordinator of the SWhoop (South West Hoop Conference) which has received the award for Best Hoop event 🙂
Emma has been coming to teach at TADAH regularly since the very first TADAH hoop intensive and we’re thrilled to have her back.
You will have 3 x 2hr workshops with Emma

Lisa Lottie – teaching 2 classes remotely from Australia
Cabaret artist, corporate entertainer, festival performer and YouTube sensation, Lisa Lottie’s hula hoops, contortion, style and beauty have been seen across Europe and around the world.
A world-class, highly-skilled artist, Lisa was born in Amsterdam, began her career in a traditional circus in India, has trained at Escola National de Circo in Rio de Janeiro and holds a degree in Circus from the Conservatoire for Dance and Drama in London. Based now in the UK and Australia, Lisa delights international audiences with her festival show “Bend It Like Barbie,” and her sophisticated, skilled and sassy performances at elegant supper clubs, star-studded galas, and high-profile corporate events.
Without realising it, Lisa has long been a massive star in the hoop dance world. Her 2008 video of her street performance which has amassed 1.7million views on Youtube (see vids below) is often cited by hoopers as the first they ever seen!
Lisa was one of the teachers at the first TADAH hoop intensive and is a welcome regular – unfortunately she cant make the event in person so we are brining her to you via projector screen for a couple of bonus classes 🙂
You will be enjoying 2 x 2hr workshops with Lisa via projector from Australia throughout the week.
