Instruction

I invite each student to carve out space for themselves within the hoop. Our Hoop space is a sacred place where spirit and science meet. Hooping is joyful, renewing and meditative. My mission is to explore dynamic dance qualities with each student, inviting them to move authentically with and without the hoop, while creating a safe container for personal and physical growth. As a moving meditation, our time within the hoop invites us to a deeper spiritual practice that engages both the body and the mind.

We will spend half the class working on several types of turns and then combine the moves with our props. This class is for ANY PROP, not just hoops!

This class is developed for hoopers who really want to put the dance in their hoopdance.

Paula combines her experience of Dance theory techniques with exercises designed for movement artists with little or no experience with dance, lyrical hooping combines ballet, jazz and modern techniques guaranteed to improve your flow in your hoop.

Organic Choreography~or: “What makes you so spacial?”
Get ready to get intimate and find your groove in the context of this tribe of flow. Paula will lead you on a deep journey towards your authentic movement practice as it relates to groups and into a place of group flow choreography. We will participate in meaningful exercises designed to open up your awareness of how you move in space with others, gradually building on a group vocabulary of movements that by the end of the class become a choreographed dance. It’s amazing, and almost unbelievable how easily the group starts to mesh and entrain together when led through this class. I like to call it a crucible of motion. Come dance with us, and share your most authentic moving self.
