This month’s hula hoop lesson is to challenge yourself to keep BOTH hands on the hoop the ENTIRE time you are hooping! It may sound easy enough but give yourself a minute or two and you’ll discover how difficult it is not to fall into your regular hooping patterns. Check out Safire’s video below for inspiration.
Also be sure to keep in touch with our Monthly Hoop Challenges on Hoop City to find new ways to challenge and explore your hoop dance practice.
In February Edmonton got a chance to see the infamous documentary The Hooping Life when Carla Snow of Flowlab and Nina of Infinity Hoop Dance brought the show in town. Now the movie is making it’s way south and showing up in Calgary too! Check out the Facebook event page and save the night of March 22nd to see the screening of this piece of hooping history. In addition to the screening there will be music and performances throughout the evening. Safire will be performing her Multi Hoop Electro Swing act so if you missed it at the Cabin Fever event than now’s your chance!Read More »
If you’re in the Calgary area I’ll be doing a performance in Calgary on Saturday night for the Electro Swing: Cabin Fever Event. Check out the Facebook page for more details on the event. I’ll be doing my LED multi hoop act to the oh so excellent Catgroove song by Parov Stelar. It’s an update version of the choreography I did for the Boomfestival in Portugal and will be super fun. Get off the couch and come on down and shake your booty to some excellent tunes.

Baxter of the Hoop Path will be doing workshops in Calgary and Edmonton Next Month. If you have never taken a workshop with Baxter I would strongly recommend it. His style of instruction is unlike any other that I have experienced. He truly guides you though a journey over the course of three days and you’ll discover things about your hooping that you may never have encountered on your own. I always walk away from his classes with a renewed perspective on hoop dance and on my personal practice. I’ve decided to give his workshop a try with 2 hoops this time to see if I can break through some barriers and limitations I have with twins. I’ll let you know how things go. Check out the Hoop Path website for tickets, he’ll be in Calgary the weekend of February 24th – 26th and in Edmonton March 2nd – 4th.
