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. Emma is now based predominately out of the UK and Germany 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 was one of the teachers at the first TADAH hoop intensive and we’re thrilled to have her back.
