“We’re from opposite sides of the country but we’re here to bring you all we got!” – P & N
Nick has been touring since February, hitting the east coast and integrating into the midwest just before Electric Forest. Paulina Milligan of Heady Hoop Tribe from Tempe, AZ is joining a leg of Nick Minton’s “50 States Hoop Workshop Tour” after performing at Electric Forest with the Hoop Troupe. As we join forces in The Forest, we hope to bring you the most magical energy we’ve experienced.

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION
This workshop will focus on the idea of letting go of the hoop, while still having intention and control of the hoop as it is free to also do it’s own thing. We will share movement concepts including improv technique, utilizing space, creating ‘freeing’ muscle memory, presence and emotional draw. We will discuss how to create a nurturing, encouraging environment for self expression and why to indulge in the benefits of AWE.

Skills covered will range from a selection of typical tricks (such as body rolls and balance work, escalators, wedgies, helicopters, coin spins/folding, isolations/ghosting, recovery moves, etc) to more dynamic movement (such as foot-hooping, acro-yoga-hooping, partner-hooping, and multi-hooping).
