Renowned for her teaching skills and ability to break down complicated movements, this program includes detailed written trick breakdowns for all moves covered in the Seeding Series. You'll also learn how to create your own trick breakdowns and learn how to troubleshoot students, how to write your own lesson plans, activities to use in the classroom, tips on marketing and working as a hoop dance instructor.


"This past week, I thought I'd challenge my drop-in class with the vertical step through. What I discovered is that it's really helpful to learn isolations first as the movement of turning your arm to "stop" the hoop as you step into it is the same motion of going from hand hooping to an isolation. Bingo! Several of my students had that ah-ha moment after we stopped and practiced going into an isolation.
I never would have thought that those two moves were related, without really analyzing what I'm doing with my body and what the hoop is doing. That's what going through SaFire's teacher training has really taught me. How to connect the dots, how to analyze, and get those break through moments consistently both for my students and my own hooping!

Hi Nikki,

I would recommend brining your own hoop but if you are not able to travel with it there should be extras around the space.  Other things to bring, a notebook/laptop, pens, comfy clothes, water, snacks, ideas or specific questions you seek answers for.  ; )

Safire.....I am coming from Indiana for this teacher training.   I am very excited to meet you and learn from you!  I'm wondering about what to bring and what to expect.....  Should I try to bring my own hoop, or will there be some there at the flow-jo to use?  Also wondering about this Wed. night hoop jam I've read about.  Do you know if this will be going on?

Should we expect anything other than the payment confirmation before the training? As in emails, materials, a list of things to bring? Do we need to print and bring our payment receipt? Looking forward to May.

Payment just went through! I'm so excited to learn from you. See you in May!

I can't be sure how long, there is limited space because the studio only fits so many. We have a few spots left but I also know several people who have e-mailed me with the same question and they'll be paying before the end of the month.
