Back AGAIN by popular demand!
Summer Series of 4
June 4, 2017
This workshop is intended both for dancers who want to expand their neuro-muscular awareness and for anyone curious about the hula hoop as a fun, cardiovascular activity. We will start at the beginning, learning how to keep the hoop going. From there we will use the constant motion to explore spirals, subtle weight shifts, and pathways through the body. We will direct our attention to not only how we can act on the hoop but how the hoop is acting on us. Be prepared to problem-solve, sweat, embrace awkwardness, and find communion with your new dance partner, the hoop. Class will include skill training and improvisatory structures.
