About the Facilitator
Donna Sparx is a professional hula hoop dancer who is passionate about bringing the dance into the hoop and sharing the freedom found in play and flow. Recognised globally for her creativity, innovation, flow facilitation and playful approach, she has shared the hoopla with thousands of people aged 2 to 72! Donna has performed with the Women’s Circus and at many festivals and events. She brings a passion and playfulness to her work that is infectious.
Her motto: Do it ‘til you can.
When not playing with or teaching hoops, Donna can be found doing acro, pilates, dooping (hooping at the dog park – yes, it’s possible to hula hoop, drink coffee and throw a ball for the dog at the same time), or deciding which leggings will best reflect her mood today.
This has given me a whole new way of teaching myself to let go and enjoy the dance side (not just ‘tricks’) which has been scary but invaluable.
I have been hooping for a while and know quite a few tricks. Problem was, I couldn’t move freely between them and I was always overthinking everything. Thanks to this course, I finally know what flow feels like and I am loving it.
