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!
This 4 week beginner Hoop Dance series will be every Wednesday of the month. The classes will be held at Prana Yoga Studio, of Sarasota, (located across from the Publix on S Osprey Ave and between the 2 bike shops– Sarasota Cycle and Village Bikes) from 6:00-7:00pm. All levels of beginners are welcome. We’ll be in the back room. Park around back but wait until at least 5:45pm to come in, as there is a yoga class going on before us.
The series will give complete beginners all the tools and techniques that they’ll need to get started on the hoop path and to find their own unique rhythm to dance; their “Flow”.
Even if it seems forever since you’ve played or you’re completely new to Hoop Dance together we’ll take the first step. I can personally assure you, given the time and energy to the practice, this can be an exciting adventure within the Circle.
We’ll open with circling up, introducing ourselves & discussing what we want to take from the class as well as something we’d like to share. I’ll will give some background into this emerging art form of Hoop Dance as well as establish some common terminology for discussions of different movements.
We’ll start moving with some stretches and warm-ups specific to the movements needed for Hoop Dance. 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. Even if you’ve been hooping for a while, this is the best series to begin with as it lays out a clear outline of a lot of the foundational moves for hoop dance.
I will provide hoops of various sizes for everyone to use during the classes. Although, you will eventually want your own personal hoop to begin feeling comfortable and familiar with its own unique feel, size and weight.
Most monthly series have 4 Wednesdays and the monthly classes will only be $40 if paid in full. If there are 5 Wednesdays, then the series will be $50.
Single drop-in classes are $15 each.
You may pay at the time of the event with cash, checks or credit cards (with a $1.50 service charge) or pay here online.
Students who complete this 4 week series will have all the basics they need to dance comfortably with their hoop –their new dance partner. And start down the hoop path to find your Flow.
Together, we can create a safe place of sharing and learning where it’s okay– even encouraged to drop your hoop. We’ll try something new, encourage one another, throw our hoops around and laugh! Don’t be afraid.. we all had to start somewhere. 🙂 This is a supportive group that wants you to join in and play! Come out and play 🙂
I look forward to meeting all of you new Hoopers <3
