Matt-The Nine Square

THE NINE SQUARE Two Hoop Workshop  This workshop will focus on the idea of the Nine-Square grid.  Through visualization and some arranging of hoops we will create a visual representation of this grid and discuss the impact it has on how we move even if it has yet to be acknowledged by the individual.  Following this with some brief arm-circle drills we will begin to explore the Nine-Square through anti-spin’s, in-spins and caps.    While this workshop will be focused on two-hoops there is still much to be gained from understanding the Nine-Square when it comes to single hooping and all of the movements discussed in the workshop are possible (and simpler) with one hoop.

BIO: Matt started hooping in 2012 and it was love at first rotation.  After being inspired by the 2012 Electric Forest Hoop Troupe videos, Matt found his first hoop goal and locked his sights on entering the contest in 2013.  From hundreds of videos he was selected along with 15 others to travel to Michigan to attend, perform and teach at the festival.  On the ride back to New Jersey he decided that he had a new goal: to share, connect, perform and teach with the amazing and always loving hoop community.  In July of 2013 Matt was contacted about attending Hoop Camp and immediately jumped at the opportunity despite being unsure of how he would make it from New Jersey to California.  Combining a fundraiser, workshop, fire jam and party into one Matt was able to successfully finance the trip out to perform at Hoop Camp in 2013.    “I am so grateful to be returning to Hoop Camp in 2014 as an instructor, it is yet another one of my now endless list of goals I am happy to cross off in 2014.  I cannot wait to connect and share with all of you in September!”
