Hoop Performance: Pippin and The Sharmat

Hooping to me is a form of self-expression, but most importantly a better way for me to get in touch with my body.” – Pippin and The Sharmat


A hoop vet of three years, Pippin demonstrations her amazing technique and captivating skills in her newest hoop demo, ‘MANTLE.’



We asked her to give us some hoop advice for those beginning hoopers, she told us to “get a mirror and draw a grid on it! Your dance will improve much faster.” This advice is great for anyone in the hoop dance world because a grid can help you master your planes, giving moves such as isolations that extra crisp finishing touch!


You can find her performing at local venues and attend her Mizzou Hoop Group in Columbia, MO. But for those far away, don’t worry! You can find more Pippin and The Sharmat at Facebook  or on Youtube
