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!!!

MARCH SESSION begins today!!

Yay! And spring has been teasing us all weekend, just asking us to come outside and revel! And most of us probably did.

I was working on my pipes this weekend. In both senses! Wrestling that pipe into hoops is sometimes harder than you'd think. I did have to ask my Strong-Arm Man to help a couple times. They are pretty much done - some decorating today (hopefully in the sunshine) and they'll be ready to find new owners tonight!

If you haven't gotten a travel hoop yet - you might want to consider it. Especially if you like to bike and walk places. These hoops (CAREFULLY!) fold up and can fit into a bag, or be tethered and tied over your shoulder. ALOT easier to transport than a full-on open hoop. Believe me, I've biked and walked a good number of places with the open ones. They are cumbersome. I am working on hoop bags and tethers to sell alongside the collapsable ones. Keep an eye out for me at the GUELPH FARMERS MARKET some weekend soon, hooping and promoting in the back parking lot area (unless they'll let me go out front, which I am thinking of asking this time...).

Pictures of the new hoops will be up this week. I am trying out new tapes and such that feel less toxic to me. And I am sourcing RECYCLED pipe!! So excited to be able to make these things a little more sustainable. The upside: if you care for you hoop, it should pretty much last indefinitely.

Come stop by a class to see what it's all about, everyone is super friendly! Don't be shy if you think you "just can't keep it up." That's what the class is for! You can learn a few tricks and use a hoop that is THE RIGHT SIZE and weight for you, and it's infinitely easier. I don't think anyone I know can really keep those K-Mart lightweight plastic hoops up, either. These hoops are hefty and Large! (Well, some of them, I did make some pixie-hoops, too) They are designed to move with momentum and give you a great workout!

Come on and Get Fit for Spring!! Cheers!
