Hoop Technique Tour - Boulder, CO
Space & Energy
We're excited to bring Hoop Technique to the feet of the majestic Rockies with an upcoming workshop in beautiful Boulder, CO. There's a lovely community of hoopers in those parts and after making warm connections at Hoop Convergence, it was clear that Colorado should be next on the list.
This 2 day workshop will introduce the complete system of Hoop Technique theory with specific emphasis on the concepts of Space & Energy; day one focusing on Space, day two on Energy.
Hoop Technique Theory encompasses a broad range of hoop movement and vocabulary oriented around four key concepts: Space, Energy, Time and Flow. These four concepts provide a framework for creative expression and expansion. Through exercises, theory and instruction, our focus on these concepts will increase awareness of what’s possible and encourage exploration. Each concept can be applied to any move and can be understood as a lens through which it can be examined and experienced.
*The concept of Space explores the relationship of body and hoop to the space we occupy while hooping.
*Energy refers to the physical and emotional energetic tones we can utilize to enrich and deepen the quality of our movement.
*Time relates to speed, acceleration, direction changes, rhythm, tempo and beat.
*Flow is the personal mastery of creative movement; effortless transition from move to move guided by expertise, muscle memory and inspiration. For us, Flow unlocks the bliss and transcendent joy of hoop dance.
Some of the moves that will be covered:
Isolations, Extensions, Isopops, Isobreaks, Antispin, 3d Moves, Dynamic Stalls, Sustained Spinning, Variations of Reverses.
Exercises in Timing, Transitions, Sequencing and more will help ignite your creative fire.
This workshop is intended for hoopers of all skill levels. Our only prerequisites are the capability to waist hoop and to do a lift from the core. It’s recommended, but not required, that you are able to chest hoop and comfortably perform an off-body weave.
Please dress comfortably and bring water. Smaller hoops are recommended for the material we will be covering. We will be bringing Hoop Technique hoops and have them available for sale at the event. If you’d like to pre-order one of our unique, high-performance hoops, please send us an email and we'll send you the specs.
