The incredible Laura Aszman from Beauty In Movement (USA) will be leading the Shoulder Hooping and Flow part of the course. Think tracing, shoulder duckouts and graceful, easeful flow. Laura will guide you to find your flow and get your shoulder hooping buttery smooth in both currents. Teaching flow and shoulder hooping is Laura’s specialty and her approach to facilitating movement is an experience in itself.
Donna Sparx will take you on a ninja-esque journey that encompasses a range of breaks and paddles, transitions and techy AF combos. Your whole body will join the party as we push the edges of what you thought was possible. Time, practise, guidance and play are all on the menu to LEVEL UP your hooping.
What To Bring
- Hoops! A larger, heavier hoop for flow and shoulder hooping and a lighter, bouncier hoop for combos and breaks. Hoops will be provided too so don’t stress if you don’t have the ‘right’ hoop.
- BYO playfulness, water bottle and wear comfy clothes.
More About the Teachers
Laura Aszman is new to Australia from Portland, Oregon and has been teaching hoop dance for a decade. Her dance-focused style embraces sensuality, flow and grace. Laura’s joyful approach to teaching encourages her students to listen and respond to not only music, but to their state of mind and individual bodies; to inspire a unique, liberating improvisational flow state.
Laura has studied under the pioneers of contemporary hoop dance including Anah “Hoopalicious” Reichenbach and Brecken Rivara and further developed her unique meditative approach under Jonathan Livingston Baxter.
Most of her life dancing made her feel vulnerable and awkward. Once she began exploring movement with the hoop, a deeper connection to her body naturally unfolded. The hoop has been by far Laura’s best dance teacher. It is her movement meditation, her passion and life practice.
Donna Sparx is a professional hula hoop dancer who is passionate about bringing the dance into the hoop and sharing the freedom found in play and flow. Recognised globally for her creativity, innovation, flow facilitation and playful approach, she has shared the hoopla with thousands of people aged 2 to 72! Donna’s superpower is breaking down the trickiest, techiest moves and making them accessible for everyone! Donna has performed with the Women’s Circus and at many festivals and events. She brings a passion and playfulness to her work that is infectious.
Her motto: Do it ‘til you can.
