Level 1 Hoop Dance w/ Megan Jenkins Wednesdays, 6:30 - 7:30pm, Room 105 SIGN UP HERE: https://www.unityhoops.com/event/level-1-hoop-dance-5/2019-01-16/ Remember that silly plastic circle you loved playing with as a kid, that one that brought you so much joy and bliss? It’s calling you again, the hula hoop beckons you to come play, it wants you to rediscover that joy again. Join the fun! In Level One Hoop Dance we will focus on the foundations of hoop dancing. Each week we will build on skills like: waist hooping, movement with the hoop and moving the hoop up and down the body. We will then learn to link these skills together and you'll develop your own personal flow. By the end of the eight week session, you will feel comfortable moving with the hoop, transitioning between skills and experience the pure joy that hoop dance has in store for your life. Hoops will be available to borrow in class and can be purchased from http://etsy.com/shop/unityhoops so you can practice at home!
