Circling the Globe with Hula Hoop Champion @marawa the Amazing

For Instagrammer Marawa Wamp (@marawa) better known as Marawa the Amazing, hula hooping isn’t just a backyard activity—it’s a way of life.

"I am a professional hula hooper," says Marawa, who lives a nomadic lifestyle traveling, performing and teaching hula hooping around the world. "I studied hoops at circus school—true story—but there wasn’t much of a hooping community back then. It was either hooping in the circus or hooping dancing at a festival, neither of which I really got into. I worked at finding the types of shows and events that I wanted to be a part of and now have established a style that is kind of its own thing."

Marawa’s hooping travels have led her onstage with major musicians, to fashion weeks in London and Paris and even into founding her own junior league, The Majorettes (@themajorettes), who teach classes of their own in London. Marawa also once famously spun 160 hoops simultaneously, breaking a world record.
