This event has passed

Join Hoola Monsters and Hoola-Fit creator, Abby Lee, every Tuesday (starting 1/8) from 4-4:45 p.m. for a super fun hoop dance class series for kids! This class is intended for children ages 5-12. At Hoola Monsters, we believe in the power of play and creative expression. Handmade hoops provide a great mechanism for kids to get fit while instilling a sense of leadership, teamwork and confidence. On the first day of the 6-week class series, kids will get the creative juices flowing by crafting their own hoops, which they'll get to keep and use throughout the course. A variety of tricks, games and exercises intended to promote balance, coordination and cardiovascular endurance will be included. The same group will meet every Tuesday at 4 p.m. and pre-registration is required. This format allows students to progress together, at the same pace. Our group will meet in the Oak Pavillion, and no prior hula hooping experience is necessary. Sunken Gardens admission is also included with the class fee, and parents/ caretakers are welcome to explore the garden while class is in session. Please ensure that your child comes prepared in comfortable clothes and brings a water bottle. What they'll learn: - Waist hooping and recoveries - How to maintain rotation on the waist while dancing - Hand hooping - Figure 8 - Basic transitions to promote free-flowing dance - Lifts and carries - Body passes and tosses Please feel free to message with any questions, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
