Hoop Dance

with Samantha Yelle


Ages: 7-12

This camp series is an introduction to hoop dance. The aim is to build a strong foundation of basic movements with hula hoops. From an established base it is easy to incorporate those movements into dance. Throughout the week campers will be taking the tricks they learn each day and adding them together for a choreographed dance. 

Every class will start with stretching (yoga) to prepare our bodies for the rest of the session. Then, campers will warm-up their cores with waist hooping. In each class they cover a few fun tricks and insert them into choreography. 

As with most skills, the more time a camper puts in with their hoop the easier learning becomes. Mastery of these tricks will often take practice outside of class.

The Teacher instructs by demonstration, so the camper will be following step-by-step verbal instructions with visual cues throughout the class. 

This camp does not require any prior knowledge and plenty of hoops are provided for use. Make sure to wear comfortable/supportive shoes and bring plenty of water to stay hydrated.
