This intermediate series will help hoopers achieve a newfound depth and richness in their hoop dance practice, preparing them to take the stage with confidence. In this class, students will learn advanced variations of fundamental techniques, build control of the hoop with drills, integrate elements of dance (space, timing, energy, shapes, lines, levels, etc.) through creative movement explorations, and leave with new sequences and choreography that combines each of these objectives.
Students should be able to demonstrate a basic understanding of a majority of the fundamental techniques covered in the level one hoop dance curriculum. These techniques include waist hooping both directions, waist hooping while moving through space, sustained spinning, passing around the waist and head, hand hooping on both hands in both directions, hand hooping above the head (“halo”), basic weaves, helicopter, smear, basic escalators, basic wedgies, leg hooping, chest hooping, shoulder hooping, basic isolation, basic chest roll, and basic foot hooping. No formal dance training is required, the creative movement explorations are accessible to all levels. If you are unsure that you are ready for the intermediate level, contact Benjamin Berry to discuss your concerns.

This will be a progressive workshop that starts with targeted strength and flexibility training necessary for a solid foundation to leap from (pun totally intended!), building up to a full classical ballet class using the Russian Vagonova technique. The course will introduce newcomers to ballet and help them develop their artistry as performers, while also providing a solid workout and refresher for those who have already had ballet training. Anyone can benefit!
