After working as a DJ for 5 years, she was offered a position with Carnival Cruise Line where she quickly started shared her hoops with other crew and passengers from all around the globe. When she arrived in Toronto, the hoop scene was in its infancy and Mandy jumped at the chance to join in! With a background in performing, coaching Figure Skating and night club promotions, she soon decided it was time to start teaching hoop full time. The concept of Sugar Hoops was born. Sugar Hoops is a Hoop Dance Lifestyle company specializing in connecting community, music & movement with the help of a hula hoop. She now has regular classes running in three locations in Toronto, Guelph,ON and Bathurst, NB.
