Buket Rin is a very curious and determined mover, who likes to work with many different ideas. She is based in Sweden but spends most of her time touring around Europe to learn and share more of her passion for flow arts and fire. Teaching and performing are her biggest passions and she adds more tools and styles to her repertoire non-stop. In her workshops, you can learn anything from super single hoop tricks to creativity with your props, circus/multi-hooping to sustained spinning flow, mobility and flexibility exercises, fire hooping or some multitasking ideas.
Get ready for some fun and challenge!
Andeli is a creative and lively flow artist from Switzerland. Her focal point is on hoop dance (2010), poi (2000) & her newly created Flow art tool SilknHoop (2018).
Andeli's lives the life in which she perceives, flow’ as a gift to yourself, something to integrate into your everyday life. And she speaks from the heart when she says, flow yourself beautiful!“
Spinning Poi & dance with the Hoop, altered Andeli’s life and inspired her love of motion and finding new movements has since been ever lasting. Out of her never-ending creativity she developed SilknHoop in 2018. SilknHoop is a playfully limited way to spin silk scarf on Hoops.
Her early stage experience, as a young girl, pushed her to perform her first fire show in 2007. Since then, she has been part of various projects, organising, teaching and performing. She currently performs professionally with the fire group Foyk and has been teaching both poi and hulahoop since 2014 in Switzerland and at international Hula hoop conventions.

Mitra Hoop is one of the founders of The Hoop Experience, she is also the creator of the Hoop & Healing Retreat, Ibiza!
In her own words:
“As the healing-art has played an important role in building confidence and trust in the realisation and understanding of the importance of sharing our gifts, I have been dreaming to create a retreat like this, on this powerful & very spiritual land of Ibiza.
A retreat with workshops supporting deeper processes which removes layers that no longer support our true and natural selves. My goal is to help you to feel empowered, be inspired and become transformed. For you to come back to your daily life and shine brighter, feel more confident, happier as the hoop dancer, performer and the beautiful human you are. You so deserve this”
Mitra Hoop is an experienced Hula-Hoop, Fire and Light performer, as well a procurer, designer, teacher and coach. Born in Sweden, she followed her heart and moved to Ibiza, Spain in 2015.
Michelle Verhoeks is a passionate flow artist from the Netherlands. In the summer of 2015 she discovered her passion for hoop dance. First seen, it looked like magic and blew her mind. Almost a year later she grabbed her old children’s hoop at home and gradually started hooping from waist to chest. From that moment she knew her hoop journey had begun.
Times of secretly dancing at her safe space home in a small room changed to flowing free in the park every day. For her, the hoop is a powerful tool to step out of her comfort zone and form a unity with the body. Dancing with the hoop gives her joy and can bring her into a state of ecstasy. In 2017, she founded FlowMies and started giving hoop dance classes, jams and performances. In 2018, she became a certificated Hoop Love Coach by Deanne Love and went to TADAH Artist Habitat in Turkey for the Advanced Teacher Training of Emma Kenna/Hooping Mad. Her flow journey has expanded by teaching at retreats, practising rope dart and doing fire & UV bodypaint shows.
It makes her happy to teach this beautiful art form to new and experienced hoop dancers and to connect with people in the flow arts community.

Sound baths by Amilde

Since a little girl, she has been passionate about mystics and learned so much from her grandmother who was a healer in her village. When she was 19 she became a certified Reiki healer and from there her journey continued with Kundalini-Yoga and Hatha yoga. It was through her Kundalini education she came in contact with the gong instrument which she will share with us, alongside various different instrumental instruments.
"He who knows the secret of
Sound, know the mystery of
Universe. "Hazrat Inayat Khan

Flying trapeze was Jenny’s gateway drug to circus, providing weekly thrills throughout her first year as an undergraduate at New York University and prompting endless questions from classmates about the white powder all over her clothes. While studying in London the following year, she fell in love with the fire spinning community and started her long-term relationship with hula hoops and fire manipulation.
Upon returning to New York and finishing her degree, Jenny decided that a job in her field of academic study (politics) sounded exceptionally un-fun. She has since worked as an assistant editor, an ESL teacher, an academic administrator, a live-in nanny, and a professional dog walker while training with circus industry professionals at studios including Circus Warehouse in NYC, Gorilla Circus in London, Centro Acrobático Fedriani in Madrid, and the National Institute of Circus Arts in Melbourne, among many others. Her exposure to these different circus communities and teaching methods around the world has fostered Jenny’s unique movement and teaching style. She remains always open to adaptation and committed to growing as both a performer and coach!
Jenny now specializes in aerial hoop and hula hoops - but has a habit of falling in love with any new circus discipline that crosses her path. She is currently based in Berlin.
