Hoop Dance Basics

with Jessie Jewels

Modern Hoop Dance is an evolving form of movement, fitness and meditation. This workshop will be geared towards beginning hoopers with little to no experience.

We will explore basic waist hooping, moving within the space of the hoop, rhythm and off body hooping. Hoops will be available to use. If you have a hoop please bring it with you. Laughing, smiling, and having fun included! Perfect for new or beginning hoopers. Even if you couldn't hoop as a kid I promise you will have a better experience using larger "adult sized" hoops. The bigger and the heavier the hoop is, the easier it is to keep it up!!!
