OUR MOTTO IS “HOOP GIRLS WHIRL THE WORLD” With a big H -for HAPPY!!! Hoop Girls have a whirl of a time, getting happy and fit, while burning calories
hooping it up to their favorite pop tunes using beautifully designed hoops. Our Fitness Hoops ( they can purchase from Betty) are handmade, slightly weighted,
larger hoops, which makes learning hooping easier for beginner and challenging for the pro. We start with a dynamic warm up using the hoops, followed by Hula
Hooping and learning some awesome 'hooping tricks” and eventually, full choreographed HOOP DANCE routines. As the class progresses and the girls master
some “Hoop Tricks” they then collaborate together to create their very own choreography. The class will end gentle yoga stretch and some fun games. We do
our best to have a Hooping performance for parents on last day (about 10 min before then end of the last class). Potential performance in various local events
such as Vets Day Parade, Thanksgiving Spectacular, Holiday Tree Lightings, St Pats Parade, Alive at 5, Walk for Hope and more. Monday is
beginner/intermedaite class. Wed Hoopers must be able to Hoop well on waist and have had at least 2 classes with Betty. Friday is intermediate at least on class
with Betty. Hooping is a wonderful form of exercise, self expression, and creativity. It improves fitness, stamina, endurance, strengthens Core and improves
hand-eye co- ordination, proprioception, balance and motor skills. Hoop Girls is also a phenomenal stress reducer. The endorphins flow as the smiles iden with
each new Hoop Girl Tick they master. Visit American Counsel on Exercise (ACE) for more benefits of Hula Hoop exercise. Wear sneakers, bring water. Sandals
or open shoes not allowed. Hoops provided. ALL SESSION 8 WKS Dates do not include 1/2 days or holidays. (MIN OF 10 MAX OF 16 FOR CLASS)
