tactics tethers hoopla revelry

HOOPDANCE in guelph



Today's class (MONDAY JULY 5th) is cancelled due to heat and classes will not be resuming until the fall (September)...please check back for jam-dates and fall schedules...cheers!!!

Currently I am running one class a week at
St. George's Church, 99 Woolwhich Street, Downtown Guelph
on MONDAY evenings.


***I've changed the time, though on the flyers and posters it still says 6pm, I will be arriving at the church around 6:45pm and you are welcome to come and warm up or hang out at that time. There seems to be little interest in arriving anytime before that, so I've bumped up the schedule.

Please come around the back doors and knock or ring the bell if they are locked. Some kind soul will let you in!

The class consists of two parts; an open studio jam session and a more structured class. The structured class takes place between 7-8pm. You are welcome anytime after 6:45pm to play and warm up, then stay for the class, and then dance some more (till 9pm)!

JUNE Session includes Monday evenings of June 14, 21, 28 and July 5th. You can drop in to a class anytime for 12$ for any part of the evening, or pre-pay for a whole
4 week session for 40$.
I am now offering a parent/kid deal of 60$ for the 4 weeks for the duo! Come out and spend quality family time having fun!

******this is the LAST SESSION OF THE SUMMER**** I will be organizing a few jam sessions at parks - check here for dates and times in July and August, then regular class resumes in September. I'll post the dates for that as soon as the June Session ends. Thanks!!!

HOOPSTATIC HOOPING in St. George's Church

hoop class and jam!
Dates so far...
Every Monday in February!
Whole Session: $39.99
Drop in class and Jam $15
Drop in Jam only $8

...the first session is set to begin this coming MONDAY FEBRUARY 1 2010 at St. George's church, downtown Guelph! It will run for 4 weeks, all four mondays in February, and a new spring session will hopefully commence in March.
The evening will broken up into two parts: the first part is a more structured class where I will lead some yoga inspired stretches and then teach some basic hooping technique, and encourage play and discovery with the hoop. We will explore repetitive movement and basics that can be incorporated into the free-dance. This class will be geared to beginners, but could easily be used as a work-out time for more experienced hoopers, or to hone their less-dominant side.
The second part of the night is an unstructured "jam" time where I hope that people will feel free to hoop, dance, laugh, skip and play to their utmost. I will still be circulating and happy to offer tips and teach new tricks or flows to the best of my ability. This part of the night should be suitable for any level of hooper.
I finally settled the space and am so excited to dance it up in there on Monday. There is even a little hide-away for me to stash hoops, so I wont have to haul them to and fro. There are some little quirks about the space, but overall I think it will be grand!
So far people seem to have their interests peaked, but really there is nothing like giving it a go. It's all about discovering yourself, your freedom and your inner-child that longs to be silly again! Play and Be Free!!

I am trying to drum up interest as well as positivity and blissful hoop spinning, so I am offering the whole session (class and jam together) for $39.99 until February 3rd. Feel free to contact me for details!
