We are so excited to start off Spring with our new Series of weekly Beginners hoop dance classes as well as a Multi-level Hoop workshop, especially for those of you that can’t make the weekly time-slot!

Our Beginners Hoop dance Series is perfect for Newbies as well as hoopers that would like to recap some of the basic moves.  It will run over 4 weeks and have been dubbed Season 1 😉  This is a weekly 1 hour course that will start on 21 September at 7pm.  

If you can’t make the weekly slot, we are continuing our Think Flow Hoop dance Workshop series.  This time round, we will be facilitating a 2 hour multi-level workshop, perfect for introducing new friends to hooping.  The workshop is scheduled for the public holiday on Monday, 25 September at 10:30am.
