Hoop Dance Styles

Hoop Dancing can take on so many forms. I thought I'd like to highlight some different styles of hoop dance just to demonstrate how versatile this art form can be.


Ballet Inspired Hoop Dance

Burlesque Hoop Dance

Off Body / Isolations / Modern

Circus / Contortion

Belly Dance

Trick Based / On Location

Gymnastic

Steampunk / Modern

Multi Hooping

LED Hoop Dancing

Fire Hooping

Partner Hooping

Native Hoop Dance

Dancing with a hoop can lead to other forms of flow arts like ariel hoop or lyra, manipulation, poi, staff and I'm sure a bunch of other art forms I'm not aware of.

There is a video of a very cool chick doing a modern hoop dance in an empty swimming pool...and I can't find it online for the life of me...I'll keep looking!

Progression and Encouragement

video
Just to show some progression I thought I would show 2 videos of my islolation practice. I was working on getting down the iso-pop. Here's my first day doing it.

And now here's the next day.
You might not see much difference, but I do:) More smooth, real pop going on and my confidence is improved as a result of documenting these little practice runs.

video
I suppose this is also documenting how I haven't cleaned up the kitchen either:)


Sunfire Inspired hooping

video
A new trick I've picked up and am working on...floating something or other:)
Shakti Sunfire is the hooper who inspired me...she has such a wonderful flow and philosophy for life and hooping.

Excuse my mess in the kitchen.

November hooping



My playbook is getting finicky on me...so as a result I couldn't add a video directly...this link will show my...November hoop update

And a few days later...More backyard fun

It was cold that day but I was desperate to get out and hoop with no ceiling or walls to confine me.
