Workshop Description:

Hoopie Hoochie Coochie spinstars Ginger Rose and Jacky come from Planet Spindia; a place of play, love, connection, MAGIC and HOOPS. Glorious and fabulous Hula Hoops. Ginger Rose & Jacky twirl their hoops so fast that it cracks the space time continuum and opens up a portal that allows them to hoop dance through the decades. Recently they took things a little too far and have been stuck in a distant space age future where no matter how fast they twirl they cant seem to spin themselves out of this futuristic land so THEY NEED YOUR HELP as they require more HOOPERS AND MORE HOOP POWER to whirl  them back to safety. Join the girls as they take you on an adventure and teach you how to hula hoop on and off your bodies and combine a sequence of moves into flow that will no doubt crack open the space time continuum once again and land them safely back home… or so they hope!


Ginger Rose’s obsession for hula hooping began many many moons ago in Sydney (9 years for those who count solar returns). She has taught ‘Hoop Dance/Flow’ and ‘Hoop Fitness’ classes to a variety of ages ranging from precious preschool critters through to wonderwoman in the over 55’s age bracket. Continuously seeking to expand on her hoop knowledge and connecting with others is what motivates Ginger Rose to push herself to learn nifty new tricks and techniques (and she loves that fitness is the by-product of hoop hilarity). Having trained in Bali, Perth, Melbourne & Sydney, Ginger would love nothing more than to help spin your hoop dreams into a reality.


  • “I had such an incredible time at Lost Paradise – it was a wonderfully unique experience. Thanks again for the opportunity to attend Lost Paradise – it was one of the best festivals I’ve attended in Australia and a fabulous start to the year.”

    Sophie Dellagiacoma – Australian Traveller Magazine

  • “I had such a good time at Lost Paradise! It’s one of the coolest festivals I’ve been to. I loved playing the Lost Disco stage, the atmosphere was wicked, the decoration was class and the lit up signs the crowd brought with them, added to it too.

    After my set I went on the dancefloor with a few of my mates and saw the new year in listening to Jackmaster & Jasper James, was a memorable new year!”

    – Patrick Topping
  • “Lost Paradise was a totally unique festival, nothing like it in Australia. Thank you to everyone who made it such a beautiful place.”

  • “The thing that really makes this festival shine is without a doubt the sheer variety of acts in that world class lineup. Dense, ambitious, and not afraid to throw in a few curve balls, Lost Paradise is much more than your average doof, but a playground for all, no matter what your age or musical alignment.”

  • “After Boomtown in England this is definitely the second festival with the craziest stuff”

    – M.I.A.
  • “One of the most magical spots we’ve ever played in Oz and a night complimented by generous staff and hospitality that really looked after us. A show we’ll never forget”

  • “My favourite view from stage in the world. Doof sticks and the Australian bush, insane energy.”
    – Willaris. K
  • “Re-awaken your sense of wanderlust and adventure with the festival’s secret hideaways, glittering late night discos, and inspirational art and performance”

    No1 NYE 2017/8 Event in the World – Buzzfeed
  • As 2018 became 2019, I found myself feeling sorry for all my Sydney pals couped up in clubs and bad house parties. But also, not really. When you’ve got a festival like Lost Paradise waiting for you just down the road, why on earth would you spend your New Year’s anywhere else?”

    – Hhhappy – Bill Robinson
  • “A picturesque setting in Glenworth Valley forest, a flowing river that hugged the venue and camping grounds, and one of the most characterfully constructed settings of any festival this side of the Pacific, Lost Paradise curates its New Year celebrations in the same way it curates its lineup: with weird and wonderful indulgence.”
