Fun, fitness & festivals with Australia's Hula Hooping Guru.
Visual artist, super mum and Hula Hooping Guru, Mel Wheeler, has taken the circus scene by storm, leading the way as a performer and teacher.
Her journey began with interest in painting and sculpture, delving in colours and textures on large scale canvas, leading to several showings over the years in regional gallery exhibitions. Her passion for art lead her in to teaching community art workshops and advocating for artistic youth engagement.
Through her endeavors to find more inclusive, expressive environments, Mel discovered the fun and magic of the Australia doof music scene, taking special interest in the circle of hula hoopers and fire performers. She discovered her own abilities to swing a hoop, and before long she had mastered many tricky tricks and breath taking feats.
In 2015, Mel made a surprise performance on stage at the Infected Mushroom live show at the HiFi, Sydney, which fired her passion for live performances. Since then she has appeared in various festival and corporate events, including Defqon 1, Earthcore, Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, giving high energy, engaging shows that capture the attention of audiences, often stealing the show from the DJ.
Blending her teaching skills with her hooping talents, she began on to host fitness workshops for both children and adults, both in Australia and internationally, recently having been a special guest of In-Depth Hoopdance Retreat in Hawaii and the The Hoop Dream Retreat, Malaysia.
Mel currently has several performances and an exciting TV debut coming later in 2019, and is available for live performances and fitness training appointments. For bookings, please contact us.
