These workshops are brought to you in association with The Finnish Hoop Dance Association (Vannetanssiyhdistys). Members of the Association receive a reduced workshop rate.

Beginners AND Advanced students welcome! 🙂

I will break all tricks down to their most basic components and give extra variations for the more advanced hoopers! 😀

See you soon!

Please note the venues are different on Saturday and Sunday 🙂


Saturday 10th March

@ kylänvanhimmantie 25, 00640 Helsinki.

2-5pm Roll with it

Learn all about how to nail your back and chest rolls and a ton of variations on them. We’ll cover fake rolls, rolls to and from the foot, half rolls and folded rolls. We’ll also work on adding another hoop for those that want a challenge to include some interesting combos, ocho rolls, behind body catches and more.

Sunday 11th March

@ Agronominkatu 3, 00790 Helsinki

1-3pm Unusual Elbows

In this workshop we’ll be exploring the use of the elbows in a more fluid style. Constantly moving on and off the elbows, using them as a guide or a resting point rather than a place to spin the hoop. We’ll be focusing specifically on the use of the outside break elbow grab and folded rolls to transition in countless ways and removing any awkwardness you may feel about incorporating elbow tricks into your hooping.

3-3.30pm Break/Jam/Questions

3.30-5.30pm Show a Little Leg!

If it’s one thing I love doing it’s hoop tricks with my legs ? This workshop is all about tricks with the legs and feet while standing up. We’ll be learning some pick ups, wedgies, foot passes, leg breaks, foot rolls and throws from the feet. With each trick you’ll learn ways to incorporate these tricks into your normal dance.

If possible to have bare feet is best for this workshop
If possible please bring a hoop that is the same size or smaller than your inside leg length

5.30-6pm Break/Jam/Questions/Pack Up


Both days = 90€ (Association member price = 70€)
Saturday Only = 40€ (Association member price = 30€)
