I provide a range of different courses for hooping beginners, whether they’ve just begun learning or not even touched a hoop before!

Hooping provides an energetic and fun way to exercise and improve co-ordination. It's an aerobic exercise and helps burn off those calories still lingering after Christmas; it can also help tone the body as the hoops can be of different weights depending on individual preference.  According to experts, hooping can burn between two and four hundred calories every thirty minutes, or one hundred calories every ten minutes.  This means that a class of one hour could burn six hundred calories: hooping is not just fun, it’s actually exercise!

Events Workshops (One off teaching sessions)

Having done one or two hour sessions for corporate events such as Lush, I’ve discovered that hooping is a really great and different way for groups to have a fun time or for colleagues to team build.  I will provide one off one or two hour workshops for a range of clientele and events including hen nights, festivals and corporate events.  These sessions will involve learning the basic tricks of hooping in a laid-back and fun environment.    


Children's Workshops

I provide two different tailored sessions for children depending on the client’s requirements; these are weekly classes or one off teaching sessions for in-school and after-school, youth clubs, children’s parties or any other similar occasion.  The one off activity sessions will include teaching children hoop tricks, playing hoop games and learning a short choreographed routine.  I will also provide the option of purchasing a DVD of the final performance.

I’ve found through giving workshops that people who had not really considered taking up hooping or poi before have found themselves really enjoying the experience and planning on continuing with it.  

Because of this I am equally keen to bring the world of hooping to people of all ages and all levels of hooping experience and am available for bookings for three main types of workshops: adult classes, events workshops and children’s workshops


Kay Pink Hoops - Hoop Isolations

Perfect for absolute beginners to advanced hoopers, this workshop is a great way to learn a variety of still and linear isolations and techniques to clean up your isolations.Manipulating a hoop to appear as if it’s floating or rolling through the air is a subtle art that takes a steady hand and a little patience. This workshop provides a solid foundation in isolations, from the most basic one-handed isolation up to advanced two-handed techniques. Ways to improve the ‘stillness’ of the hoop so you can impress everyone with the magic that isolations offer.


Kay Pink Hoops- Feet are the new Hands


Anything hands can do feet can do better! This workshop opens up amazing possibilities with floor work as well as offering a variety of foot hooping tricks. Foot breaks, hooping from behind your head, going up into a shoulder stand, and passing between feet will be covered, as well as a multitude of ways to start the hoop from static with your feet, from passes, standing and laying down. This workshop allows you to introduce more musicality and dancing into hooping with your feet, offering something for hoopers of all levels.



Kay Pink Hoops- Shoulders Knees and Toes

Awesome selection of my favourite tricks with your shoulders, chest, knees and feet. Covering how to clean up your chest hooping, using simple but effective methods in both directions. Exploring shoulder and neck breaks, to change direction. This workshops includes fun tricks with your knees and a few new foot hooping faves! Something for all levels.



Kay Pink Hoops - Dancing With Your Hoop

This workshop focuses on improving your ability to have fluidity of movement and musicality in your hoop dance practice. It involves exploring a variety of movement techniques and engaging with the hoop in a variety of ways, making your style more interesting and unique. If you feel stuck in using certain tricks in set patterns, or focusing just on tricks and staying still, this is a great way to break out of a plateau and use the space in different ways. This class is suitable for all levels and is great fun, as well as being great for your development. Cultivate your own individual style of hoop dance through playing with new concepts, activities and styles of dancing!
