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.

Hoopnotica class tomorrow & lunch after :)

Hey hoopers!

I am so pumped about class tomorrow, looks like we are going to have a large turnout! I will be bringing a few new shiny hoops for your adopting pleasure. You will LOVE to have a hoop of your very own to take with you everywhere & practice in the comfort of your own home. Hoops range in price depending on size/decoration etc and begin at $10 each.

I am planning on heading over to Nuevo Laredo Cantina for lunch afterwards! Please come enjoy some amazing lunch & margaritas as we get to know one another beyond the typical class structure. I am planning a couple hoopy events for the future & would love to hear your thoughts as well as what dates may work for you. Here is the link to where we will go for lunch, it is literally 3 minutes from the studio.

Classes resume 7/10

My Hoopnotica classes at Pera Dance Studio will resume this Saturday, July 10th, 2010. I am thrilled to share with you the hipnotic tunes that I have recently acquired as well as spanky new hand crafted hula hoops that I have been working on! My home hoop making studio is up and running! Soon I will have hoops available through this site as well as my classes. My wonderful Admin and I have been working very hard. New sassy choreography has been perfected into new combo’s to share ! I will try to fit in as much as possible in the coming weeks in addition to award winning Hoopnotica curriculum. My goal is to give students a few transitions to work with on your path to creating your own special dance. Enabling you to open up into your groove and move from just simply trick hooping or waist hooping and actually dancing fluid in motion, at one with your hoop.

Check out the amazing facilities at Pera Dance Studio. http://www.peradance.com/
