Today was AWESOME!
Kara journeyed to L.A. to take lessons with some of the most talented pole and hoop teachers in the world. So, I got to play teacher with some of the coolest chics ever! Laurie, Tiffanie and Katrina. I was so honored that they were willing to listen to my ideas and that they trusted me to spot them as they played in the hoop. They are incredibly brave and will surely become hoop stars!!!
One of the concepts we worked on was to be softly ridged in the hoop. Soft – so our movements can be fluid and pretty. Ridged so we ensured our core muscles remained engaged. And they did – they were spectacular.
I have all new respect for Kara and all the other dance teachers in the world. Teaching two classes back-to-back was exhilarating and exhausting.
