Featuring a hoop playlist for hot hoopers of all levels and abilities:

Join Jocelyn Gordon, Master Level Hoop Instructor, on a journey into foundational hoop dance. Learn how to move the hoop on your Waist & Hips while you walk (Forward & Backward), spin (360 Spin & more!) and burn 400 - 600 calories an hour!

Jocelyn is an expert troubleshooter who sees the hoop as a tool that amplifies joy AND provides valuable feedback on the hooper's physical strengths and potential areas of repetitive stress. In addition to keeping the hoop moving and sustained on the body, you'll learn how to keep the hoop even and level. In this workshop, you will experience the hoop as a mirror and tool for holistic fitness.
