About This Class

Have fun learning basic hooping while getting a workout!

In this workshop, you'll learn how to:
• hoop on all parts of your body, including your hands, arms, waste and knees
• dance, jump, and run with a hoop
• play with exciting tricks and sharpen our styling so we look good doing it
• Finally, we will practice our freshly learned skills in a short choreography

This class is designed to inspire beginners and advanced students alike.

Dress Code: Wear tight fitting clothes with bare knees if possible.

What to bring to class: A bottle of water and hoop if you have one. Hoops available upon request. Custom hoops made by Pinkie Special available for sale, inquire at lpinkstar@hotmail.com.

As with any exercise or movement class, you may check with your doctor before taking this class. With any movement class there is a risk of injury. When you register you agree to accept responsibility for any injuries, waiving any right to hold responsible the teachers, event producers, or venue.
