Caroleena-Hooping Behind the Body

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

HOOPING BEHIND THE BODY  Behind the Body is the unexplored plane in hooping and yet there are dozens of moves, tosses, rolls and poses hoopdancers can use to add flourish to our hoopdances while also opening our hearts and shoulders. Hooping behind the back makes for great photographs and is also great fun. These moves are part Bob Fosse jazz dance, part Vegas showgirl, part ninja. Please bring a yoga strap (or the belt to your bathrobe) because we are going to begin with a series of warm-up stretches to increase our range of motion and flexibility in both our shoulders and arms. These stretches are good for healing and preventing injuries and great for our posture.

FANCY FOOTWORK FOR HOOPERS  This class covers hooping on the legs and feet, both upright and while laying on the back, but it also explores footwork patterns, traveling steps, spins, turns and pirouettes, leaps, knee spins, one-leg balances, and a variety of step-throughs.
