Showing off – fancy tricks and flourishes to impress!
Having come to hooping through a circus background, Jessie’s style focuses on musicality, trick-based hooping, and crowd pleasing embellishments.
In this workshop Jessie will lead you through a variety of ornamental tricks on the body, incorporating multi-hoop work, throws and manipulation.
Learn to punctuate your flow with stop points to impress your audience and friends, and harness your inner show-off!
Tricks covered will be:
One hoop flourishes
Kick up variations
The workshop will include creative exercises to find different ways of adapting and combining existing flourishes to create something truly your own, and will encourage experimentation, and working with music.
Emphasis will be on incorporating new tricks into your own style and vocabulary, and using pauses and musicality to great effect.
