June 17, 2012 – Spin Jam to immediatly follow! Please email for details. //FROM Ninja Hoops.  As we wield our hoops with power and grace, many a hooper has channeled the ninja. A rare combination of subtlety and surprise, the art of Ninjutsu can be mysterious and elusive. Fortunately, Ninja Hoops is here to break it down nice and easy. Beginning with fundamental martial arts theory, and working up through the body, this workshop will give a thorough overview of how to hoop like a ninja master, moving your body and tool with intention, spatial awareness, and flow. Our workshop will cover stances and footwork, kicks and strikes, fanciness and flair, and even extend to some partner interaction. We’ll also learn how to increase our power, speed, and precision by accessing the vibrant and explosive energy behind the navel. This workshop is intended for those with at least basic hooping proficiency, and a particular comfort with hand hooping, but will be challenging and informative for hoopers of any physical background or experience level.  For more info about the Acro Spinning please visit

Cost –Day Pass to either Acro Spinning or Ninja Hoops $45 / Weekend Pass to Both Workshops $80
