Vertical Plane Hooping


This class will focus on vertical, style hooping; tricks and moves that would all be good for an LED or FIRE performance. We will do both vertical on and off body hooping. Some of these might include brief discussions of anti-spin flowers, isolations and ghosting, mandalas, contact rolls and tosses, and many advanced variations and potential transitions from off body to on body and vice versa. During on/off-body work, we will practice methods of manipulating the hoop to change between horizontal and vertical planes. We will also work with barrel rolls and the idea of utilizing both front and back wall planes and seamlessly flowing between them. Any specific form of vertical hooping may be focused on more than others if there is a majority interest in the class gravitating towards a particular concept.
