"Hey hoopers! Do you have friends in Copenhagen who'd love to learn how to hoop? I'm teaching two fun workshops on 5th May, one for complete beginners and one for more advanced hoop stars! Check out the link for all the details and please…"
"Just digging up this old discussion. I am doing a birthday party this weekend and wouldn't mind updating my playlist. Anything popular right now that should be added to these lists? I'd love any ideas. :)"
have you learnt all the tricks with danny that i sent you in that video yet?
should only be a couple o' sessions work :)
i can probably do the tuesday and wednesday so that would be sweet.
I am sorry i did not reply to your message earlier, i only just realised that i even had this comments section. Whoops!
Yeah i am circus trained, well kind of.
I taught my self to hoop about 5 years ago from watching heaps of performance videos on youtube and progressed well but slowly. Then 2 years ago i got to go too two work shops with Yos Worth(the lady that taught bunny her circus style). Unfortunately i had a broken foot for both of them so i could only watch and listen. Then Finally late last year i got to do two weeks of various training at the Flying Fruitflys circus with Yos!!! Hurray. Luckily i learnt a lot from just listening to her before because she did not have to correct much of my technique but i still learned heaps.
I am super keen on the circular push which is the circus style. After i learnt it every think particularly splits became so much easier. Also it makes sense because you are always pushing the hoop which gives you more control. It seemed horrible when i first found out about it because i had to completely re learn some things but since then i have been able to get my 4 - 5 and 6 hoop really quickly so it does pay of.
As far as the waist knee combo i think it is totally the hardest one there is. Have you tried adding in a third hoop on the chest or arms. For some reason i found when i was learning it was heaps easier when i had one on the top half of my body too.
I don't regularly come up to syd but let me know if there are any cool hoop things on because i would be keen to come meet some rad Sydney siders.
