About Us

History

MoodHoops is a woman-run, LGBT-friendly company that has been handcrafting beautiful LED hoops & LED props in the USA since 2011. Started by three friends after getting their minds blown at Burning Man, we first began our hoopcraft in a tiny house on the Weeki Wachee River. Our team has grown to include a diverse group of skilled fabricators who work daily with precision, dedication, and care to make your hoop sessions magical.

When we first started, buying a hoop was hard! Hoop shops were very small, sometimes hobby operations by a single person. MoodHoops was founded to change all of that. We sought out cutting-edge multi-color LEDs in vibrant palettes to design styles and collections for easier shopping. We took pictures with trails, showcasing the magic of LED hooping in a still image. We advanced a removable battery design so you never had to stop glowing. Most importantly we made it easy to find a hoop that fits your style and your budget.

As smarthoop technology entered the scene, we began to experiment relentlessly. We tried to rethink smart hoop visuals from the ground up. The FutureHoop was the first to display complex bitmap images in the trails instead of just chasers and color morphing effects. More importantly it was designed to let the hooper concentrate on dancing instead of fiddling with a control mechanism. Inspired by music visualizers like Milkdrop and procedurally generated demoscene art, FutureHoop would randomize and shuffle to keep the patterns and colors fresh so the hooper could let the flow take over. A year later, FutureHoop Remote and FutureHoop Pro were the first smart hoops to use remote control so the hooper or a friend could take control of the show.

Even today we have never stopped refining our hoopcraft. We’ve added colored polypro hoops, taped beginner hoops, fire hoops, and more. We’ve grown into a one-stop shop for any hoop supplies you need. And if there’s something you wish we had that we don’t, please let us know!
