Hoopnotica hoop dance classes in Atlanta

Join us every Saturday at Pera Dance Studio in Atlanta for Hoopnotica Hoop Dance classes! I am a Certified Hoopnotica Hoop Dance instructor (see can not wait to share my love of hooping with all of you. This class is a drop in style class for beginner and intermediate level hoopers. If you have never picked up a hula hoop before OR if you are looking to expand your skills this class is for you! All are welcome ♥ I will provide student hoops for the class out of my collection of hand crafted hoops made with love by Rebecca DeShon (that’s me yay!) Already have a hoop of your own? please feel free to bring it to use for class.

In this class we will learn the foundations of hoop dance and the infinite possibilities you will find in the hoop for body and mind. We will learn hooping on the waist, hips, arms, hands, chest, shoulders, neck, legs and MUCH MUCH more. We will explore the hoop on and off our bodies as well as learn cool isolation moves. In each class we will build upon what we learned in the previous classes.

Here is a list of some of the benefits of hoop dance & hula hooping

  • Builds core strength
  • Tones the entire body
  • Burns approximately 400-600 calories per hour
  • Provides an intense cardiovascular workout with no or low impact
  • Increases energy
  • Develops balance and coordination
  • Increases flexibility
  • Clears and quiets the mind
  • Reduces stress
  • Improves self confidence
  • Generates joy and laughter
  • Improves one’s mood
  • Enhances creativity


Come check out this world class facility and share the energy ♥ Check out the website for more information or to register for a class. This class is filling up fast but we are still allowing drop ins at this time at the studio’s rate of $12 per class. Discounted class cards are available when purchased for multiple classes.

Comfortable, form fitting, natural fiber clothing that allows freedom of movement is best for learning hoop dance. Custom hand crafted hoops are also available for purchase through Rebecca DeShon (see me after class) or send an email to
