Romancing the hoop with Hoopalicious
Sept 10th, 11th & 12th, 2016
Join me in 2016 to revel, or perhaps reclaim, in the PLEASURE inherent in hoop dance. Whether your love affair with the circle has just begun or you are currently in couples counseling after many years together, this workshop is for you! In the 18 years of my own relationship with the hoop, I have had stretches of time where the interplay between body and circle were easeful, like breathing. I have also had many moments where I struggled to connect and had to force myself into the once irresistible hoop. Such is the flow of any relationship! These days I am finding the most fun in simply allowing myself to feel the hoop pressing into my body and getting lost in the feeling of an extra appendage to channel rhythm and dance into. No striving for perfection, no anxiety over if I am “good enough”. In a world that can have so much stress, striving and pressure it's so lovely to let the hoop be a place of just letting go. Are you in?
We start with a good old fashioned hoop jam Friday night to break the ice and whet our appetite... then over eight hours in 2 days we will play with increasing awareness of hoop-on-skin contact to enliven our senses and tap into flow. My specialty is get down, get funky body-rocking and there will be plenty, from foundational to advanced. We will explore slowing the hoop with undulations of the body, slow breaks and slowing moves down in general for added control and dreaminess. As with every great love affair, fiery passion will be visited also... and when it comes to hoop dance, it is often in high speed, big power moves and courageous tricks both on and off body. All in all, Both flow and technique will be delved into for the satisfaction of mind, heart and body.
