Hula Hoop Hand Grips for Interesting Hoop Dance Variations

Hula Hoop Hand Grip Tutorial with Che Rippinger of Hip The Hoopla

Here’s a short tutorial video on several hoop hand grip positions with Hip The Hoopla’s Che’ Rippinger. Note: I use the names of these grips as Emma Kenna teaches–because I love the accuracy in her fun descriptions, and she is a total enjoyable hoot–plus I love to credit the original source!

Hand Grip Variations Video Tutorial Link

FOR THESE HAND GRIP TECHNIQUES:

There aren’t any prerequisite moves that you need to have accomplished first for these hand grips. Just know that they do flow together with each half turn, and can be used interchangeably in your hoop dance flow session. It’s good to know these on both hands, and going in both directions on each hand–so your possibilities for combining them and creating variations on new moves and dance combinations, is endless!

HOOP DANCE TIPS:

Please warm up and cool down (head to toe!) to keep your body safe and hooping longer, hydrate, and take it sloooow! Make sure you have a nice dance posture: stand tall, shoulders back, chest and head lifted, abdominal wall in, pelvis tucked under, and a slight bend in the knees. Dancer/Boxer feet–keep your weight shifted forward on the balls of your feet, rather than resting back on your heels–easier for nimble movement. Try everything *without* the hoop first. Next, just hold the hoop and do the moves. Then get your fancier hoop moves in while coordinating with some basic stepping or fancy footwork dance combinations. Bring all you have to the table–your personal style, experience and sass! Stay positive and give yourself lots of credit for any and all progress! Keep a hoop notebook and take a couple of moments to write down tips and tricks that are helpful for you. Then review them right then and there, and a few minutes the next day…etc. You’ll be amazed at your progress! Please post how you are doing. Grab a buddy and stay accountable to another. And Please Share! Thanks So Much for watching!

Quick Video Hula Hoop Tutorial Trick: Inverted Scorpion Pass

Inverted Scorpion Pass with Che Rippinger of Hip The Hoopla

Quick Tutorial-Inverted Scorpion Pass Hula Hoop Trick with Che of Hip The Hoopla

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

Many Blessings to You ♥ Hoop Love, Ya’ll!

How to Hula Hoop In 10 Minutes or less!

HipTheHoopla-WaistHoopingIn10minutes
Hula Hooping in 10 minutes or less Video Tutorial

Waist hooping can be pretty easy-especially with some great instruction. Here’s some excellent techniques used in Hip The Hoopla humorous hula hoop dance fitness classes from Che Rippinger — to help get you up and going in 10 minutes or less!

Note that having a good size/weight hoop for YOU, is really important. If you used to do it as a kid and are trying to use a kid’s toy store hoop that is too small and light, that hoop may spend a lot of time on the ground, as it’s too small and light (you’ll need a lot of speed and excellent technique to keep it up–it can be done, with lots of practice). To begin with though, try starting off with a larger, heavier hoop, to insure a quicker success.

Remember that getting even a quarter of a rotation with good technique, before the hoop goes down, is a good start. Eventually, you can get more and more successful rotations in when you learn to keep your beat/movement really steady in a rhythmic formation.

Tips: Take it slow. Practice. Play. Practice some more. Hydrate. Warm up & cool down. Use a good size/weight hoop for you. Enjoy the process of learning something new. Remember: Progress, not perfection. Pick/use a “Happy Hoop Glee Word” for when (not if) you drop the hoop.
