Several people have asked me if you need to be a certified instructor to start teaching a hoop class. The answer is: No, but it will help you to succeed and help you teach your students better.
No I have never taken any Hoop teacher training nor have I ever even seen an instructional hooping DVD.
I am completely self taught in both my hooping and my hoop teaching skills.
I do have to point out though that I have a Bachelor of Education and a Bachelor of Fine Arts. I've got almost 4 years of experience teaching hoop dancing to people of all ages. I'm currently running hoop classes in my home city for adults in the evening and also provide hoop dancing workshops in schools during the day for a maximum of 30 students per 1-1/2 hour workshop grades K-12.
So I've dealt with a lot of questions.
I have been thinking about offering certification. Maybe next year?
The class would be offered online. Your "Final" would include sending me a video of your hooping and a short description of how you plan to improve the lives of your students by sharing the gift of hooping.
