Creator and Boss Lady of Hoops, Thighs & Buttocks, Jane Fondle is all about getting physical. Starting out as a star in her parent’s lounge room, she then took it to the streets at age 7, surprising her neighbours by busking at their doorstep, singing and dancing “We built this city on rock and roll”. As a teenager Fondle finally found an outlet for dancing on stage in a fabulous costume and became a National Aerobics champion. She then moved on to become the world Twister champion (true story!).
After studying all styles of dance and movement, Fondle discovered her love for the hula hoop at a circus festival in 2003 and hasn’t looked back. She’s developed her own hula hooping style, incorporating 80s/90s dance, aerobics and comedy. She now travels the world, training, teaching and performing at international hula hoop retreats.
Bouncing between Melbourne and Byron Bay, Fondle spends her time choreographing, creating, performing, running hilarious hens parties and team-building sessions and teaching students of all ages and levels the fine arts of hula hooping and expressive 80s dance.
Flexi Lexi is all about the booty popping, hip-hop dropping dancing fun! She’s a maniac on the floor and has trained in all styles of dance, so we like to think of her as a quadriple threat.
Teaching and performing for the past 10 years, we’re lucky to have this babe in our Melbourne teaching squad to bring the booty dance, 90’s hip-hop and 80’s dance fun to our hens parties and corporate workshops alike.
She’s sure to make you smile, laugh and giggle while learning all the sickest dance moves! It really is an experience being in Flexi Lexi’s dance class.
A life-long fan of moving and dancing, Sooz spent 17 years training and performing Irish dance, jigging her way to 6x Australian Champion. She went on to teach all the Erins and Sineads their reels and hornpipes for close to a decade.
After quitting the curly wig, fake tan and poodle sock world, Sooz found herself looking for a fun way to still get her kicks. When she came across hula hooping, she didn’t own a pair of hotpants, but was intrigued by exercise that used body parts other than legs! Soon Sooz was getting hoopy every day. Armed with a growing arsenal of sparkly hotpants and hula hoops, the scientist-by-day grew into her hooper-by-night alter ego, Soozyloops.
With a love for all things hoop, Sooz is excited to be a part of the Hoops, Thighs & Buttocks crew and to inspire others to find their own loopy alter ego!
Jess Love has hooped, flipped, skipped and skated their way around the globe for over 20 years. Graduating from National Institute of Circus Arts in 2003 (before YouTube EVEN!!) with their unique blending of acrobatics and world class hoops skills, Jess is one of Australia’s OG hoopers.
Jess has spent the last 10 years in London, killing it on stages in the UK and across Europe.
