When you first pick up your hoop there are a few things that you will probably want to try out; waist hooping, giving it a spin on your hand or arm and maybe a cool trick or two that you have seen before.
My biggest suggestion though is to try dancing with your hoop right from the very beginning of your journey.
In June/July of this year I am excited to go to Sacred Circularities in Bali and dance with some hoopers that are new to the hoop life. We are going to explore a whole range of goodness but the essence will be DANCE.
In this video I share with you 4 fun ways to dance with your hoop when you are just starting out.
Play with the energy of spinning and stopping.
Play with spinning the hoop on and off your body in both directions
Play with creative ways to move the hoop on to your body and off your body.
Hooping has connected me with some incredibly colourful creatives.
Hayley Hoopla is definitely one of the most talented performers, costume creators and kids entertainers I have had the absolute pleasure of being connected with. Among many other super duper fun things that Hayley does she teaches a Hooplovers hoop class once a week in Melbourne.
Every single one of her classes feels like a wonderland of super fun choreography and hoop theatrics.
So I thought we should share some of her magic with you!
Enjoy the colour and fun in this video as Hayley Hoopla aka Hoop Dogg teaches you The Sneeze.
