Hoopdance Instruction

After the performance, Gem will get the kids up and moving by leading a mini-hoopdance class, incorporating easy to learn hoop tricks and dance routines.


Hula Hoop Decorating

After the hoop class, it's time to get crafty! Each child will recieve their very own professional grade hula-hoop (handmade by Gem from a very strong, industrial strength material, guaranteed to stand up to the toughest play). They will get instruction on how to decorate their hoop with colorful tapes, stickers, ribbons, etc., and each child will go home with their own unique creation that they made themselves! Can you imagine a more original or long-lasting party favor? 


Games and Dance Party

After the hoopmaking, Gem ramps up the action again with hula hoop themed games, hoop relays, and an all-out hula hoop dance party to your favorite dance songs! Gem will provide the sound system (which includes LED light show), and music, please discuss playlists with her when you book the party..


Price: $350 for party up to 12 children ($12 for each additional child)

  • Girl scout troops, school events, and 4H clubs
  • Fairs, festivals, and special events

Location and Space Considerations

 Party will take place at the location of your choice. Gem will travel to Middlesex, New Haven, and Hartford counties up to 20 miles from Durham, CT. Parties outside the 20 mile radius will be considered but will be subject to .55 cents per mile charge. Party area must be large enough to accomodate all children moving, dancing, and playing with hula hoops. Outside areas are great, or indoor spaces if they are large and have high ceilings (like a gym, cafeteria, dance studio, etc.) Smaller sized Girls Night In Hoop parties can be held at our studio space in Durham. Many facilites will rent indoor space at reasonable rates, check with your local recreation center for rental options! Or click here to explore the options at Green Street Arts Center in Middletown for affordable space rental! The Wallingford Parks and Recreation Center also offers affordable rental, or you can reserve one of their many beautiful park/pavilions for party use!
