HoopDANCE class

Hooping is as much dancing as it is tricks & technique. When we hoop, it is as with a partner: we engage in a dance with our own body and our beloved circle. In this dance arises a greater awareness of our own physical body, the space surrounding us, and the internal impetus to move in spirals and circularities. Flow brings us to a meditative dance state where we tap into our greater self in exactly the way we need to.

Join Andrea of Chicago Hoop Dance and Solaire to explore and develop your own HoopDANCE with this 4 class series focusing on integrating hoop and dance techniques with personal movement patterns. Refine that which you already know, and reengage to master new skills across the board.
