What can I expect in a hoop class or lesson?

(Private sessions, In-home lessons, classes, workshops)

Beginner Hula Hooper

Beginner hula hoopers learn how to appropriately hula hoop on their tummy with ease and variations. Beginner learning hula hoopers become familiar with necessary vocabulary, hand grips and positions, and the concept of hoop dance flow. On their body, beginners will increase their core and chest strength while beginning to move the hula hoop up and down from their chest to stomach, preparing them for shoulder hooping fundamentals. Cool hoop tricks such as the vortex, halo, and jump throughs will be explored. Off their body, beginner hula hoopers learn how to spin, hinge, hand pass, egg beater, and isolate the hula hoop as cleanly as possible. Key hoop concepts and technical vocabulary words are one of Breezi greatest hoop strengths as a teacher. After one hula hoop dance lesson you will be able to hoop flow through a sequence of dance choreography using fun, fundamental tricks while enjoying a total body workout. Hoop dance lessons are perfect for all ages; children learn how to safely play with a hula hoop and adults benefit greatly by learning hula hoop tricks and how to dance with your hula hoop.

Intermediate Hula Hooper

Intermediate hula hoopers will learn how to safely toss hula hoops, execute various body rolls, as well as explore double hula hooping with full size and mini hoops. Intermediate level hooping consists of learning how to create transitions, enhance your hoop flow, and develop your own hooping style while expanding your hoop trick dictionary. You will surely become a flowing hoop dancer once at an intermediate level. Additional hoop tricks learned are leg hooping fundamentals, body wraps and escalators, foot work, "the other hand" positioning, POV concepts, and exploring all off-body planes. 

Advanced Hula Hooper

Advanced hula hoopers can request tricks they would like to learn and/or have more variations of. Advanced hooping is very sequence and dance focused, increasing your ability to cleanly flow through hula hoop transitions. Advanced hoopers are challenged to "break" their current flow and find an entire new avenue for expression. Challenges and "rules" are created to motivate advanced hoopers to think outside their current box. Tricks are introduced in depth, and content already known is thoroughly cleaned up. New advanced tricks introduced incorporate pinch to breaks, shoulder hooping techniques, one leg hooping, and split time double hooping.

Double Hula Hooping

For beginners to advanced spinners. Learn double hoop tech and flow with regular sized hoops and twin mini hoops. Explore the vast realm of geometry off your body as well as learn how to hoop with two hula hoops on your body. Breezi specializes in teaching double hoop flowers, three beat weave, hip hop double hooping, performance flare tricks and amplified POV. 

Hoop Flow and Dance

One of the greatest requests as a hoop dancer instructor is how to flow through transitions for hula hooping. Flow is when you are fluidly dancing with your hula hoop while transitioning smoothly from one trick to the next. Breezi offers a very large array of techniques and tips for increasing one's hoop flow and deepening the understanding of how to transition without getting stuck in a sequence of repetitive tricks. Breezi is also exceptional at finding ways to make it look like you never drop your hoop (even if you do!) and continuing with your fluid hoop dance.

Hoop Trick Tech

The backbone of hula hooping is hoop tech. Technically, you can't flow without tech. But, arguably, you can tech without flow. Why? Because hoop tech is the understanding of the geometric planes around you and how to engage within those planes amidst doing at least one hoop trick. Hoop tech is also the fundamental understanding of correct hand positioning, cleanly moving your hula hoop through a manipulation, and maintaining proper spacial positioning at all times. Some hoop hobbyist (watch out, many think they are qualified teachers) will say hoop tech is just hoop tricks. No - hoop tech is a rich and vast realm of vocabulary, positioning, geometry and more.
