Hooping High (2 x 1:45h)
Be ready to hoop yourself high! These workshops are dedicated to all kind of playful ways to let the hoop go up in the air. Expect a wide variety moves to release, catch smoothly and save the hoop from drops.
These tricks are perfect to spice up your dance and I’ll teach you smooth way to flow into other moves On & Off Body. In the two workshop days we’ll practice how to combine these dynamic moves in various combos and learn to take risks while dancing by letting go. It’s going to be challenging and very fun!
Expressive Hoopdance (2 x 1:45h)
First I will teach you new tricks and combos and show you how to create your own combos. I like to use basic tricks like weaves, escalators, wedgies or folds. You will discover my expressive approach, where the whole body is involved, the focus is on dance, geometry and musicality and how every movement (or trick) can be an expression of emotions! We will experiment and challenge ourselves.
On the second day we focus on flow and choreography. I will teach you a little choreo that integrates a few of the combos you have learned. But there will also be room for improvisation and free flow. I will give you a few ideas about this. How to be aware of your body, the music, your hoop and the group at the same time. I want to create a controlled chaos between flow and choreo, where everyone has their maximum awareness of the moment and the group. I would like to catapult your hooping to the next level in terms of expression, precision and fun factor.
