Ashley Sacarelos, aka Hooperina, fell in love with hoop dance in 2008. Hula hoops took over her life and she has since taught hundreds of classes throughout the Twin Cities metro. Hooperina encourages kids to be creative when playing. Her workshops emphasize the importance of self expression, teamwork, and an active lifestyle. She is inspired by the children she instructs and thrives off of their contagious energy. In addition to offering educational entertainment, Hooperina also performs at birthdays, community events, and corporate parties.
