TRACING: Tracing is a technique that marries familiar manipulations of the hoop (such as core hooping, lifts & drops, and Samurai techniques) with an additional supportive connection with our prop. It can be ephemeral or sustained, and it has an inherent soft sensuality and potential quietness about it that makes this technique particularly entrancing. When Tracing, there is often a feeling of suspension of time and motion similar to that pause between bringing the breath into the body and releasing it back out. We will explore slowing down the revolution while playing that fine line between maintaining and releasing control. At times we will be guiding the hoop and at times the hoop will guide us. Passivity and assertion. Softness and certainty.

BIO: I’ve has been hooping for nearly a dozen years ever since the woman who later became known as Spiral generously handed me a hoop beneath the big oak tree at Weaver Street Market in Carrboro NC. I’ve been a devoted (and grateful) student of Jonathan Baxter from the time he began to teach and write the HoopPath and his approach has guided me to find my own voice with this round plastic instrument. I’ve been very fortunate to journey on my own hoop path in the company of a very beautiful local hoop community as well as travel the world teaching with and learning from other hoopdancers in Japan, Finland, the UK, Indonesia, Canada and much of the US. This will be my 6th Hoopcamp and it is a great honor to be invited back to teach for the 3rd time.
