One of our favorite travelling hoop goddesses Ann Humphreys of Line & Circle will be back in Memphis for her first time at Co-Motion sharing this awesome angle hooping workshop!
Wednesday March 16, 6:00-9:00pm
From Ann: Not all hoopers know about the existence of angle-liciousness. Brought into popularity back in the late 90s by hooping’s own intrepid pioneer, Anah “Hoopalicious” Reichenbach, angle-liciousness is not the practice of merely bringing the hoop into an angle on the core–oh no. It’s much, much more than that. It’s an attitude.
Believe it or not, before Hoopalicious opened the door to hooping at an angle, hoopers all over the world were trying NOT to let their hoops dip and sink towards gravity– people were trying to keep their hoops absolutely straight across! CAN you even believe it?!? It happened here in Carrboro! It wasn’t until Spiral took her pilgrimage to LA in 2000 to meet Anah that Carrboro even learned that angle hooping was possible! But soon– Carrboro’s hooping became totally angle-licious.
I have always loved angles– my first favorite technique was what my teacher (Baxter– y’all know him) calls “Earth Angle.” This is bringing the hoop into an angle as you (the hooper) face earth, i.e. leaning down. I initially used Earth Angle to develop angle-liciousness: a state wherein the undulating flow on the angle feels inevitable, cozy, expressive, and awesome. This is what we will be striving for in this three-hour angle immersion workshop!
Please join us (space limited! Register to secure your spot!) for this extra-yummy intensive. Bring hoops of different sizes– maybe not your largest or heaviest hoop, but at least an alternate core hoop that gives you a little more space than your tiniest off-body whizbang hoop. A medium-diameter, lighter-tubing (100psi or comparable) should work nicely for this class. Extra hoops available for use and for sale in the studio as well.
