Hoops Galore: Bringing Multiple Hoops Into Your Flow
7:00pm to 8:15pm

This all level workshop leads you through on and off the body techniques to add pizzazz to your flow and spice up any routine. Create shapes and dynamic movement, build balance and strength, reunite with on-body hooping and impress your friends! Learn to wrangle 2 to 5 hoops, and take your existing skills to the next level. While this class is great for intermediate hoopers to add something fresh to your flow, *beginners* can also enjoy exploring fun movement and a little challenge in a supportive environment.

This 90 minute workshop will discuss the different aspects one should consider in creating a character for a performance, how those aspects will affect your costume, and how to use those things to convey a message to your audience. We will talk about color and fabric choices and how they impact the perception of your character, how to attractively combine colors and prints, and ways that your environment can help or hinder the success of your costume. We will also discuss ways to successfully communicate design ideas to an outside seamstress, or to render them to be certain you’re happy with the look. There will be opportunities for students to practice some of these skills during the lecture.
