For skilled hula hoopers, looking for an extra push and a facilitated space to develop with other hoopers.
In this class I teach you more advanced tricks and techniques and facilitate the space to allow you the chance to explore these ideas within your own creative processes.
The aim is to add to your skill set and encourage you to develop your own unique practice with the hoop.
STEP-THROW-EXTEND: This is an all comers, all levels workshop covering some of my favourite off body single hoop techniques: Step throughs, linear extensions and twisted throws. These are some of the most popular moves I've been teaching over the last decade and they'll be fizzed into a single evening in Cardiff this September.
We begin with linear extensions, covering the basic form, the linear circuit and transitions into them. We can then consider variations and transitions out of it. We'll use these transitions to enter our step through component, whistle-stopping our way through two step throughs: a forward entry and a turning step through. Finally we look at our throws, and in particular, spiral and twisted throws. We will melt our hoop's plane during 'air time' and find simple transitions in and out of this. By the end you'll be able to run a sequence of these three components: step-throw-extend.
