Workshops

Aerial Hoop Technique from 10:00 – 11:30am 
(please arrive 15 minutes early to warm up independently)

This workshop focuses on proper aerial hoop skill, and the building blocks/fundamentals/cheat codes to being able to create flowing choreography and personal style. The first half will explore how to “hack” the basics in order to create fluency on the apparatus, and the second half will focus on the basics of starting spins from various points on the hoop and the ground.

Aerial Hoop Spinning from 12:00 – 1:30pm
(please arrive 15 minutes early to warm up independently)

This workshop will go over the basics of starting, maintaining, and moving through mid and high speed hoop spins. Using body awareness, points of contact, and apparatus fluency, participants will learn how to move through spins in order to speed them up, slow them down, and create sequences and transitions through (instead of against) the centrifugal force of the hoop.
