Quick Video Hula Hoop Tutorial Trick: Inverted Scorpion Pass

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!

Foot To Chest Roll Hula Hoop Trick

Here’s a Cool Hoop Dance Combo

I’m actually doing this Foot to Chest Roll hula hoop trick in 3 parts. It’s an intermediate to advanced trick, depending on what all you do with it.

1. Hooping on the Hand.

Keeping the hoop engaged in wall plane with a flexed hand. And the hoop needs to be rotating IN to the body, or it will fly off in the other direction away from you, when you release it.

2. Slipping foot into the same position to take the place of the hand.

The rotating hoop moves off of the hand and slides on to the flexed foot. Extend the leg and keep that little rotational bounce going. A little strength and flexibility is needed here to hold that stance while keeping the hoop moving on the foot. You can cheat and hold your leg up to get just this portion–but you’re going to need your hand and arm for that next move…

3. Into The Chest Roll.

My tip for this is to keep your foot flexed (I call this the “brake” position). Then when you straighten/point your foot…that hoop is gonna FLY loose in the direction it is spinning! The straighter you keep your leg, it will have a straighter body roll line to follow (rather than kicking it up). Keep BOTH arms out straight, standing tall, with a small gentle upper back arch, and the head BACK (or you will bonk yourself in the face with your hula hoop as it tries to roll by).

You can also do a variation of a kick up, into a catch and roll. There are so many ways into this “Foot to Chest Roll” trick combination, and variations you can put on it to add your own style, pizzazz and signature stamp.

Here’s a fast :15 second video to see what it looks like!!! In-Joy!  If you like stuff like this, please join my Hip The Hoopla e-mail tribe to get more juicy goodies of tips, tricks, news you can use, events and Hoopspiration! And even details of how you can join our Inner Circle membership.
