Ups & Downs:
The opposing forces of up and down make for some unexpected and eye-catching moments in hoop dance. In these workshops, we will explore some on and off body movements that have both an up and a down component. Focus will be on escalators with variations, options for waist to overhead (including corkscrews/spiraling the hoop on and off the body) and angled waist hooping (sky & earth). We will also practice working the hoop up and down the body, a feat that will require hip and chest hooping, which will be broken down and drilled. Proficiency or familiarity with waist hooping, hand hooping (halos) and basic passing is required for these workshops.
Participation in part 1 is not required for Part 2.
