Set it the style of the glitter and sparkle of the 1920s this routine features the freedom and exuberance of the Charleston with a modern twist. The costumes are an eclectic mix of modern and retro and include an insane amount of sparkle - in a nod to our name - Sparkle's Hoop Troupe!


The Gardener

This piece, specifically designed for 'Journeys' - NoFit State's celebration of 30 years of circus and the closing of the John Street venue is set to a piece of music in their back catalogue. 'The Gardener' by Fireproof Giant is a fun and lively routine designed to throw happiness and party feel to the show. The routine has subtle nods to some of NoFit State's previous shows and has a vintage feel - set in the 1950s with housewives and factory workers celebrating the arrival of the weekend and hula hooping into an epic street party which culminates in a giant audience participation conga line!
