Want to know how to make a Scorpion Pass (an already ooh-ahh hula hoop trick) look even more awesome? Try adding a flexibility maneuver to it! If you practice yoga or have trained in dance, you may already know how to get an inverted standing split stretch. If you are not familiar with the safety and technique of those, please do that first! Or take out that extra element, and just practice the scorpion pass.
Having the Scorpion foot pass already accessible in your hooping tricks tool box, is very helpful.
Remember some key points in the Scorpion pass:
1. Keep your hoop hooked on a flexed foot as you drop it on to your foot from a hand pass, circle the extended leg (with flexed foot) around to the back.
2. Be ready to grab the flying hoop as you point the toe with the hoop on it.
3. With that hoop release, the hoop should transfer your hoop from foot to opposite hand.
4. Practice will help your coordination and timing of this move to pass and catch the hoop.
Hope you enjoy this and practice. If you are interested in private or group lessons, custom hula hoops, humor & health info, please connect with us at www.HipTheHoopla.com
