--WORKSHOP #1: Circus Multi-Hooping Techniques with Grace Good Performance Art.Learn to hoop like a circus performer with multiple hula hoops! In this workshop, we will be working on different on-body multiple hooping techniques as well as off-body multiple hooping techniques. We will be working with double hoops first, then moving into techniques with up to four hoops at once. This is for intermediate/ advanced hoopers. Some knowledge of doubles is preferred but not required. Extra hoops will be provided.
--WORKSHOP #2: Free Hand Flow with Lee Jeffries Performance Artist.In this workshop we will discuss and practice free hand movements and techniques. The hands are not often used to their fullest potential.. As we explore different avenues of movement and various cultures of dance, we can then begin to understand how to articulate and story tell. Once we feel comfortable with our hands, we will then begin to connect with our feet, further connecting us even MORE to that plastic circle we all love!

Topics covered will include; vertical waist, chest, shoulder and neck/shoulder hooping in both currents, on-body and off-body transitions, arm movement ideas, and turning to face the sky while in the vertical plane. I will also cover several "bonus" moves including vertical knee breaks, vertical shoulder duck outs, the vertical vortex, butt hooping, and the chest bump!
--Please bring a big hoop to practice with - one you feel very comfortable on-body hooping with! In order to fully enjoy the class, I do recommend students being at least familiar with waist, chest, and shoulder hooping on the horizontal plane!
