Buket Rin

Buket discovered hula hooping not too long ago after spending a lot of time experimenting with different dance styles and being part of circus communities in Turkey. First, it was just a random circle but after moving to Sweden, thanks to the long and dark winters, she became more and more mad about hula hooping and the art of movement. Since then she is an unstoppable flow maniac and loves to travel as much as ‘life permits’ in order to explore the fire and circles and to meet all the amazing people inside them.

Her hooping is very dynamic, dancy as well as techy. She likes to work with different styles, from acrobatics to whirling and belly dancing. With hula hoops she likes to rock with multiples, balancing, wedgies, twins & triples and fire. She teaches hula hooping for different levels locally and internationally, and currently performs with several companies in Sweden.
