Hoop Dance

Hoop dancer Missy Cooke leads classes in the Lansing area and helps participants relax, let loose, and smile more by getting up, getting out, and starting something new!

Missy's adult hoop class is great for beginners or anyone who wants to focus on core hoop techniques, or reverse current hooping. The class will cover core hooping techniques such as waist and shoulder hooping, and a few basic arm and hand tricks. After that you'll learn a hoop dance sequence that combines several tricks into an easy routine you can practice at home or mix into your current flow.

On-body hooping uses every muscle in your body so come prepared with a water bottle and comfortable clothing. Remember, bare skin grips the hoop better than clothing, so shorts and and tank tops are recommended. Beginners are welcome. You do not need to be able to waist hoop to attend.
