Hooping in September 2020
Well Classes are Back!! Indoors at the Hanover Centre Brighton BN2.
Six weeks of hoop fun and fitness, flow, tricks and transitions for Beginners and Improvers/Intermediate level.
I've been working on a new Hoop Fitness class and almost ready to bring it to the public. It's Hoop HIIT. Designed in the HIIT style of a workout that is proven to be the most efficient and effective way to weight loss and fitness!
I've been working on it for 2 weeks (20 mins 3 days per week) and lost 2lbs in weight! Are you ready for this?!! It's fast paced and suitable for people who are used to waist hooping and can spin hoop in their hands.
Hooping in August 2020
Oh boy did it rain the other day!! An August Monsoon on a Wednesday as well!!
So, I needed to cheer myself up. Took my brolly, wellies, raincoat and hoops and went forth in to the torrential rain into the woods for a hoop.
I made this video to cheer people up and I got soaked but it was exhilarating to be dancing in the rain - plus this Samba tune is so euphoric!!!
Do you ever forget how much you have achieved?
I often do, so I wrote everything down and put it in a video!
NEW INDOOR CLASSES ARE OPENING SEPT,
New Performance Workshop is currently being designed and Teacher Training programme is almost finished.
A video is more interesting than words..
One Thing I forgot to mention is that I am back at the New Forest Fairy Festival again this year 26th and 27th September. It's usually in August but had to be rescheduled. It's a lovely event in a magical setting, so if you have young fairies in the family put this in your diary. I will be running hoop playshops on each day.
The Theme this year is Steampunk Fairy so time for another photoshoot I think!
Had a great time at summer camp teaching circus skills to ages 4-11 years olds with LAGAD Gymnastic Academy.
I had a last minute request from the boss to teach a dance routine, Im not a dance teacher BUT I've taken many classes over the years, so I went with charleston moves and came up with this..everyone was dancing by the end of the week! You can see me rehearsing it in my room before I catch the train!!
Hooping in July 2020
Hello You Beautiful Spinning Human!
How are you in these strange and unprecedented times? I hope you are managing to remain positive, healthy and active.
Virtual Hoop Classrooms
These are available to buy or rent per class.
1:1 Small Groups Sessions
I'm teaching 1:1 session via skype/zoom
and in Brighton, Horsham local parks
If you are interested in signing up, please do send me a message. If you don't have a hula hoop yet,
I will help you find suitable beginner hoop.
I've just finished filming a 14 minute virtual fire and led hoop and fans performance in order to raise money for a chosen charity, It's an epic tale of Dark Shadows and Masks - my usual theatrical style of storytelling with my spinning props.
I think it's my best work yet so I hope you will choose to watch and donate to a very good cause.
Indoor classes will begin again in September.

New Forest Fairy Festival

I am so delighted to be invited to run hula hoop workshops again this year at this gorgeous family festival. I have never seen so many faery folk in one field before! A beautiful setting and a lovely atmosphere.
Performance with the
DreamSpin Hoop Flashmob Crew
Not only were we celebrating World Hoop Day, but we performed on behalf of a local low cost counselling charity in Sussex called the As you Are Centre, which offers affordable counselling to adults and children. A really worthy cause we thought and hope that we brought plenty of attention to their stall on Hove Sea Front.
October 12th saw us help Martletts raise money with our led performances outside the Theatre Royal and our "Snail" as part of the Snail Safari.
Hulaween and we were back in town raising money for Roger's wildlife Rescue with our Zombie Flashmob routine.
December 2nd, DreamSpin Hoop Crew strikes again performing for our lovely local community Patch Winter Warmer, We had fire and mulled wine and bands and danced in the Winter!
