Wednesday Morning Beginner's Hoop Dance Classes

Are you looking for a new, fun and beautiful way to move your body? Feel good about yourself and express yourself creatively? Hoop dance is not only all of these, but a way to meet some awesome youthful minded friends. Let your inner child out to play!

Hoop Dance is an emerging creative form of movement that combines ecstatic dance, meditation, and play. This movement art offers a stronger connection not only between one's own mind and body, but also to a larger community.

Hooping with a larger, hand-craf
ted adult version of the traditional hula hoop not only massages, exercises and tones the body, but simultaneously offers a cleansing, healing practice. The fact that you are burning[masked] calories per hour will be a side-perk compared to the light-hearted playfulness that the hoop has to offer.

This one hour class is geared towards the beginner to Hoop Dance. No previous dance experience is necessary.

The class is generally a small group so it can easily be specially tailored to suit your needs. This is the perfect class to join if you have never hoop danced before or are very new to it.

There will be a series of basic moves and techniques taught for keeping the hoop up, recovery methods, dancing in your hoop, and other simple methods for moving in and out of the hoop.

Bonnie Brown has been practicing this art of Hoop Dance for over 6 years and teaching here in Sarasota for over 4. She is excited to introduce this fun form of dance to many more people.

Adult-sized dance hoops will be provided for each class. These are larger, sturdier versions of the traditional "hula hoop". Eventually you will want your own personal hoop to begin feeling comfortable and familiar with its own unique feel, size and weight. You can purchase a hand-crafted hoop from Bonnie during class or here.

Even if it's been a long time since you've played or you've never hooped before you will leave this class with new skills you never knew you had and a more open mind to letting life flow.

Let your inner child out to play!

    I work days on Beneva off Bahia Vista. I am very interested in a beginners class. Will you offer one in the evening. Do I need beginners class to even begin with you ?

      If you are new to hooping I highly recommend my Intro to Hoop Dance series on Wednesday evenings 6-7pm at Prana. That one starts from the very basic beginning and follows a nice structured form each week building from one move to the next, teaching all the foundational moves.
      If you cannot attend that one and need a beginner evening class I'd recommend the Thursday evening class at the beach.
