I will always remember where I was (in the middle of a park in Tokyo) when I was trying to learn the reverse escalator. It sticks in my memory because I truly felt like I would never understand it, the moves felt so new and foreign to my body. I was starting out on my hoop journey and had mostly been hooping on body.
It can feel a little strange to let go and allow the hoop to spiral down your body but if you check out the tutorial I made you this week I know you will get the reverse escalator in no time. Here are two variations for you!
This hoop dance choreo holds a special place in my heart because it was created by the hoopers who came to my Thursday night hoop dance classes in Melbourne. We went around the room and each of us contributed a quick move, then we blended all of the moves together, popped in some transitions, added a little extra energy. This week’s tutorial is part of the end result. Fun times, try it out and let me know how it works for you.
What part did you like the most? Would you add or change anything to suit your own style?
Sequencing moves together in hoop dance can take time to integrate into the system and sink into the memory of the body, so I have broken down this flow session into two parts. This hoop dance sequence was one that I taught over a few weeks in my hoop dance class in Melbourne, so take your time with it. Inject your own style and moves. And as always, share your creation with me!
