I currently do private and small group lessons to learn the art and flow of hoop dancing. All guests have the choice to bring their own favorite dance/fitness hoops or choose from the plethora of sizes and colors that I always provide in a class free of charge!
Please use the contact form to inquire about any lesson options detailed below. Pricing and more information available upon request.
In this class participants will learn how to keep the hoop up and going. Once we get the basics down we start exploring movement within the hoop, outside the hoop, and with the hoop. Movement allows us to find and create our own flow or personal hoop dance style.
Some of what we learn:
Moving with the Hoop: Allows us to move around the floor without dropping the hoop.
Transitions: Basic and Intermediate: Allow us to move the hoop from one move to another smoothly and easily while moving and dancing.
Tricks: Tricks range from basics, like "Floating," to intermediate and even advanced moves, like "Jump Throughs," depending on the amount of class sessions.
Classes range from private, small group sessions, to large group sessions. Sessions are a minimum of 1 class and can extend to as many classes as the person/group would like.
In this class we explore how to use our hula hoops as a fitness and balancing tool.
Some of what we learn:
Yoga: We use our hoops to help keep us balanced during yoga moves.
Basic Fitness Moves: We use our hoops to help keep us stabilized. Ex. Squats
The Hoop: Using heavier and thicker hoops we work on our core with two hoop stances- Forward and Side to Side. After working on our core conditioning, we move on to a basic choreographed routine meant to get us moving and sweating! All routine tricks/moves are drilled before putting it all together.
Have an event coming up and want to show off your skills? Maybe you want to rock your school talent show. Or just have a fun routine to show friends and family! If any of these sound like you, than a choreography lesson would be perfect for you.
How it works:
You bring in your favorite song, or we work together to pick out an awesome one. Then we start working with what you know to bring the song to life in the hoop.
Lessons include a full choreography for your hoop level, plus learning new moves and transitions to allow yourself and your dance to grow!
Lessons also include tips to help build your confidence to hoop in front of people or on a stage. As well as tips and tricks on what to do if you drop the hoop mid-performance.
Lesson(s) complete with drills, tips, and tricks to help you continue your practice at home and to help prepare you for the big day.
Virtual and Long Distance Learning
Virtual Lessons are available upon request. Maybe you live in another state, or I met you at a faire but you are not local, then virtual lessons may be the perfect option. Virtual lessons utilize online tools such as Skype and Google Hangouts to allow for a one-on-one or even a small group class feel.
I will guide my virtual students through a standard class of choice (hoop, fitness, choreography). As in any other class I will watch and correct your hoop form, trouble shoot your problem areas, and guide you through learning new moves for your hoop level.
These lessons must be set-up in advanced and the student(s) must be aware that a good internet connection and a decent hoop area must be available for them to participate. Hoops do take up space, especially when moving with the hoop! Unlike lessons in a park or beach or open space, we will be working in our bedrooms, living rooms ect. Ensure you have enough space before entering the virtual class.
