Ignite the childlike essence within yourself as you begin a journey of blissful hoopla! Did you realize that the common hula hoop could be a wonderful tool for becoming more centered, more aware? In our HoopDance Fundamentals Playshop we will explore organic movement, the concepts of Flow, breath, and the dynamics of motion in and out of your hoop. In this workshop you will be playfully guided through fundamental HoopDance skills and tricks, while learning a deeper understanding of traversing the terrain of hoop manipulation.
Twirling Girlish is a performing and teaching HoopDance company in Waikiki.
Kate is a mom who comes to us from New Orleans, with jazz and blues etched into her soul, fusing hoopdance and acrobatics into acro-hooping. She instructs individual and group classes to those interested in learning the fundamentals of the hoop. Kate humorous nature and soulful fluidity are both equally embodied through her animated stagecraft. Whether in the classroom or on the stage, Kate’s charm is sure to entertain.
Born in Alaska, Sirkka was raised in Hawaii and was a massage therapist for 13 years until she finally gave it up to pursue hoopdance full time as a teacher and performer with a deep appreciation of the mind/body/soul connection. She also loves to work with children and young-at-heart adults, teaching them through hoopdance that they are capable individuals while exploring their own unique styles of movement.
