Established by Ernie Sparkles and Ellie Coptor Pilot in 2015, Sparkles Hoop Troupe has quickly become a popular cabaret, festival and corporate/charity event favourite! 

This fun and quirky hula hoop dance troupe perfectly blends dance with circus style hoops in fabulous routines designed to thrill and entertain. With routines for all occasions this troupe has rapidly grown in popularity.

Character Performances and Events

Ernie is no stranger to character performance and walkabout. One of his favourite characters is the formidable Queen of Hearts!

The Queen of Hearts made her debut at Penylan Pantry's event - The Mad Hatter's Tea Party in September 2015. She later made a reappearance at Mary Bijou Cabaret and Social Club's 'Bad Romance' in February 2016.
