Jane Fondle

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 onstage in a fabulous costume and became a National Aerobics champion. She then moved on to become the world Twister champion (true story!). Disaster struck during a bad g-string leotard incident in a fit of Flashdancing victory, leaving her unable to walk for some time (story slightly embellished). Once rehabilitated she discovered hula hooping as a great way to work out in her lounge room while fleeing from societal shame. After 15 years of hooping she’s feeling at peace with a movement medium based on thrusting the hips. Fondle has 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

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 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.

Hula hoop Melbourne, hula hooper


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!

Melly Dee

Yeeee-harrrrr! This boot scootin, hoop slingin’ hooperbabe is bringing Texas to you. We’ve got her for a short time only before she takes her 15 pairs of cowgirl boots (no exaggeration) and moves to Texas forever.
Melly Dee is as sweet as sugar and cute as pie. You’ll want to wrap her up, put a bow on her and take her home forever. Hooping first came into Melly’s life in 2014 and she quickly became hoop-obsessed. She was self-taught until 2017 when she came across the Hoops Thighs and Buttocks team. She took one class and never looked back! Of course we also wanted to keep her forever.
Hardly ever seen without a hoop in her hand, a cowgirl hat on her head and boots on her feet, Melly has combined her love for hula hoops with her lifelong love of country music and can be found hoop-scootin’ her way around country music festivals. A natural leader, she loves sharing this magical circle with everyone in her life so she spent 2019 training to be a hula hoop teacher. Now she’s ready and we’re so excited to have this little pocket rocket on our teaching team.

Punky Hoopster

Punky is the new kid on the block who’s got hoops of street cred.
From sequined synchronized swimming, to brutal water polo, from being a classical flautist, to playing the tuba in a gypsy death-core band; Punky Hoopster likes to play in the extremes! After her hit sitcom finished airing, Punky found herself (and her dog Brandon) ready for a new identity. Desperate to escape the paparazzi in Hollywood, she decided to move far away to Australia to start a new life. Upon arrival she was welcomed into a hula hooping tribe where she learned her rad moves and was given the new name of Punky Hoopster. With her interest in experimental hula hoop and training in dance improvisation and serious clowning ….she finds herself here…doing choreography to Madonna? —-Extreme!!! Punky gets funky with timeless dance-moves, to stretch and flex her way to – Punky Power!

Shaunna Flowers

Shaunna is a native Melburnian who was introduced to the plastic circle after giving up horse riding, Pippy Longstocking styles.
That fateful introduction combined her love for shakin her hips, dancing and bright sparkly things!! Hooping was the perfection study procrastination, meditation, cathartic movement, body toning, heart pumping exercise.
Over the last 6 years, Shaunna’s hoop journey has opened up many opportunities, sparked new friendships, powered once in a lifetime adventures and deepened her personal growth beyond anything previously imagined.
With hoops placed strategically all over her body, Shaunna combines circus & hoop dance in her performances with her own unique sassy style and can often be seen performing at gigs and parties around Melbourne, including Rainbow Serpent Festival each year. When Shaunna is not hooping she is working as a veterinarian and hanging out with her cat… but a hoop is never far away. Shaunna loves being part of the Hoops, Thighs & Buttocks teacher team where she gets to share her hoop passion, to inspire dreams and encourage her students to see where their hoop journey can take them.
