Hoop Dance – All Levels

Hoola Monsters classes are open to all students, regardless of experience/ level.  Our classes are  intended for those who are interested in getting a great workout while moving freely with a professional hoola hoop.  Classes are open to drop-ins and no experience is necessary.  Just come with a smile and positive attitude!  We will cover a variety of drills, techniques and concepts so students may progress at their own pace.  Hoop enthusiasts are encouraged to take their skills to the next level while developing their own unique style and grace within the circle.  Bi-directional movement (hooping in both directions) will be a standard in this class, along with fusing different forms of dance with trick-based hoop technique. Hoops are provided for each class or you may bring your own.
