A bit more about Pippa...
She flew into the stadium as Mary Poppin’s in the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony and was a featured aerialist of the Closing Ceremony of the Paralympic Games.
After graduating from the National Institute of Circus Arts in Melbourne in 2005, Pippa’s killer performing style has taken her around the world.
Pippa started performing at the age of nine years old and since then has studied many disciplines, beginning in musical theatre and moving into fields such as dance, music and acting. Yet her true calling was to be found elsewhere. Following a family history in circus and sideshow, she found her passion for hula-hoops, aerial artistry and other circus skills.
She has been seen on Britain’s Got Talent, Celebrity Wedding and Olly Murs's music video ‘Heart Skips a Beat’.
She can regularly be spotted as a favourite on London’s cabaret scene, Germany's varieté circuit and she’s even spun pyro hoops in the Crusty Demons dirt bike stunt show!
Pippa loves performing at festivals, pulling her wellies on and getting her hoops muddy! She has ripped through Tomorrowland (BE), Glastonbury (UK), Bestival (UK), Fusion Festival (DE) and Boomtown (UK) to name just a few.
This hula hoop hurricane also runs workshops and classes. She teaches all abilities and all ages, kids to grannies and everyone in between. So get involved and share the hoopy love!
