Amber Pamba

Amber’s hoop journey started six years ago when hula hoops quickly became an integral part of her life. Having discovered a fabulous new skill she soon started performing at club nights, hypnotising the crowd with her LED hoops. Also a scientist and keen acro yogi, she discovered a natural ability for breaking down and explaining complex hoop tricks. Amber is a certified LiveLoveHoop and Hooping Mad Advanced teacher and has taught workshops at conventions and festivals including SWHOOP and Brighton Flow Fest. Amber is always a favourite at SWhoop and we’re thrilled to have her back.

Emma Kenna

Prerequisite Catch Up with Emma

Teaching is what I do best so I always add in a workshop that covers 3 core hoopdance moves that are pre-requisites for other classes.

Some of the SWhoop workshops have prerequisites to ensure that every level of hooper gets loads out of SWhoop. In this class I will be going over a few core moves needed for other classes..

18mins on each one so I will run through all the tips I have and this will let you know if you are ready for the other classes and all the tips to practice these if not 🙂

Tricks I will teach in the 2020 pre req session: TBC

I noticed you like this move, so there is #tutorial for this magic trick I call "WRAP ESCALATOR" . If you are begginer, first learn front escalator and belly wrap. . By following these steps you should do it easily 🙂 . 1. Front escalator 2. catch it with opposite hand palm facing front (for me it is better to catch it a little bit in front of body, not exactly with hand on my hip – you can see it in #slowmo part) 3. move hand to opposite hip 4. belly wrap (it takes some time to make it easy, don't give up!), cross hands btb and catch it with free hand 5. just flip over the body to take it out . . I will be more than happy if you tag me in your post, share or whatever ? . . . . . #hulahoop #hoopspam #hooper #hoopersofinsta #hooplove #girlswhohoop #newtrick #juggler #hooplah #hoopdance #hooplovers #sacredcircle #flow #flowarts #hulahoopgirls @hooptuts #hooptuts #hooptutorial #hooptutorials @hooptutorials

I remember that a while ago, when I hadn't been hooping for too long, the only way that I knew how to hoop was fast, fast, fast. I had a few sick moves under my belt that I would whip out at top notch speed. I recall the day when I came to this realisation that maybe fast didn't necessarily equal good ? suddenly I wanted to have a lot more freedom in my movement and be able to dance with the hoop to different kinds of music, with different rhythms, tempos, moods etc. Not just at one speed: super fast! ? It's taken a while, a lot of exploring and improvising and a whole lot of learning to get to the point where I'm currently at… but every now and then I take a moment to realise how far I've come, and to recall that there was a time when I couldn't dance with as much freedom or grace with the hoop as I can now. ?? (Once again a reminder to enjoy the process and celebrate the progress)?? ??Shelter by Lyves?? @lyvesmusic #dance #dancer #hulahoop #hulahoopartist #hoopdancer #hoopdance #hoopersofinstagram #guysthathoop #balance #malehooper #lyves
