ST. LOUIS: Belly Hoop Dance Fusion w/ Valentina, 3-4:30pm – Saturday, August 10th – $30

Belly dance while you hoop! Learn basics in the ancient art of belly dance and how to incorporate them into your hooping technique. This workshop will expand your expressive range by focusing on the dance of hoop dance. We will break out of the restrictive nature of trick-based hooping by getting our bodies moving. Get ready to sweat! Belly-Hoop Dance is even more of a workout (mentally and physically) than just hooping! Using your arms, shoulders, chest, hips and core to shimmy, undulate and accentuate your hooping will give you a unique style, a new way to embody your music and an amazing workout! Watch Belly Hoop Dance Fusion:

ST LOUIS: Doubly Different w/ Bags, 4:30-6pm – Saturday, August 10th – $30

Learn some unusual 2 hoop tricks that don’t fit into standard on-body or poi-style categories. These will include the Hugulator 3000 and the Atomic Lips. This workshop will make you look at two hoops in a different way. Watch Bags in action!


ST LOUIS: Balances & Rolls w/ Bags, 3-4:30pm – Sunday, August 11th – $30

Learn to balance a hoop in various different ways and discover how this can improve your rolls. We’ll start by balancing carrier bags (trust me on this one) and then we’ll explore balancing the hoop on the hands, face and other parts of the body. We’ll then move on to some interesting and accessible rolls and movements which compliment them. Watch Bags in action!

ST LOUIS: Into to Hoop Burlesque w/ Valentina, 4:30-6pm – Sunday, August 11th – $30

Multi-taking at it’s best…it’s Hoop Burlesque! Tap into your seductive circus freak! We will learn a short stage-ready choreography involving the three most important elements of Hoop Burlesque – tantalizing hoop tricks, dance choreography and strip tease. Special tips will be shared about costuming, removal logistics, exuding deliciousness, and the process of creating an exciting routine. We will have a brainstorming session discovering new ways to play with sexy articles of clothing and our hoops simultaneously. How can we manipulate our costume pieces as props in show-stopping creative ways? Watch Hoop Burlesque Here: Sign
