Cat Hoops

SWhoop favourite and general amazing human Cat provided us with our finale for 2015 with Power Ballad Yoga and with a hugely well received flow workshop in 2017 and 2018. As well as being one of the funniest humans on the planet, she also teaches really impressive and moving flow workshops. Very pleased to have her back in 2019!

Lisa & Callum

Lisa and Callum joined forces two years ago, bringing Callum’s juggling skills to Lisa’s multi-hoop skills, they have balanced out to be a hoop juggling, multi hoop force to be reckoned with. They have been performing at various conventions, corporate events and circus shows for the last two years including the European Juggling Convention in the Netherlands and Poland. They have both been training for around ten years, and strive to experiment with partner hooping techniques, and hula hoop juggling. They are currently working on passing nine full size hoops between them – hopefully by SWHoop 2018 this will have been achieved.

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.

Prerequisite Catch Up with Emma

Teaching is what I do best so I thought I’d add in a workshop that covers 3 core hoopdance moves that are prereq 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 2019 pre req session:

1. TBC
2. TBC
3. TBC

BEGINNERS

PREREQUISITES

Kerry

Kerry was born in Oklahoma and is a tribal enrolled member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma. She grew up going to Pow Wows where there are native hoop dancers and she always loved it. Kerry is now a storyteller and native hooper herself. She was given her name Oka Anumpuli by her medicine man, who was Choctaw and Lakota. Native hoop is done in a few tribes, including Lakota, although there are other Choctaw hoop dancers too now. Kerry likes to demonstrate her culture in all communities. Native hoop has a lot of connective hoop and sacred storytelling rather than hula. Kerry encourages people not to imitate a native dance as that is culturally inappropriate, but is happy to explore possible new moves that can be put into your own hoop dance with single or multi hoops.

Danielle

Danielle hails from Madison, Wisconsin, USA and has been hooping since 2004. She is a founding member of the Madison Circus Space, a 24/7 circus arts incubator, where she serves on their board of directors. She lives to lead flow jams, teach classes, perform, and do everything possible to share the transformational joy of hooping.

SWhoop Workshop:

Jump Through Breakthroughs

One of the best things about jumping through the hoop is the feeling of floating, if only for a moment. But then there’s also the immediate sense grounding that happens as you reconnect with the earth. We will joyfully explore jumping and grounding, as well as learn a load of dynamic moves: the cheerleader jump through, the swing back jump through, the under-the-leg jump through, and more!

ALL LEVELS

NO PREREQUISITES

YOU WILL NEED:
A single hoop, about crotch height works well.


Kathrin Wagner

Master of rings. Kathrin will be showing us the tricks she loves with juggling rings. They’re the same shape as our hoops and there’s tons of crossover. Really pleased to have Kathrin on board for 2019!
