CHEST and CORE HOOPING TIPS:

Core hooping uses a lot of muscles and is a great internal organ massage. There are two methodologies for getting chest hooping. Warming up with and using a chest isolation* (horizontal rotation) will improve your body movement skills greatly as well as coordination (*Make sure you bend the knees and use hands on hips to give you a good press into the stretch movement and more range of motion). A side to side push movement may prove easier–both are valid ways to get there.  I find that most people learn “chest hooping” easier with the arms out and up above the head. This lets you concentrate on just the chest hooping movement first. The “Hot Stove” technique is a fun way to get your hand(s) and arm(s) into the hoop, to get “shoulder hooping.” Getting that alternating shoulder shrug action going will help maintain chest hooping and also help keep the hoop up (your hula hoop will “ladder” itself back up with that motion if/when it starts going down). Core hooping uses a big muscle group, so try not to hoop to exhaustion or for really long time periods (break it up with other moves), so you can live to hoop another day!

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.

HIP & BOOTIE HOOPING TIPS:

Keep your knees slightly bent so you have more room for the hips to move, rotate, shimmy, etc. Keep smiling–you are working your tushie–so have some fun with it and cut loose with your hips. There are lots of ways to do these moves, whether you have belly dance experience or not. The variations on these are endless–especially when you combine your body movements with hoop tricks. Remember this is about bringing DANCE (with fun and your unique personality) into your hooping–not just tricks. A hip scarf is fun for practice with coins or fringe–hearing jingling or seeing that flowy movement. Sometimes it can hinder your on-body hooping a bit though unless you have some inner hoop grip tape lining or turn in the direction your hoop is spinning to give yourself more time to move with a slower hoop rotation.

Some Fun Bootie Synonyms:

Rump, badunkadunk, bum, rear, heinie, butt, rear end, (the A part of T & A), keister, junk in the trunk, tail end, and caboose. And I call it a “bootie shelf,” lol so shake it if you’ve got it!

LEG HOOPING TIPS:

I do distinguish between “leg hooping” and “knee hooping,” which some people use interchangeably. I recommend NOT hooping directly on the knees, but instead slightly above or below to keep your joints and tendons safe, especially if you are using a bigger or heavier hula hoop. You can hoop on the legs horizontally, vertically and we haven’t even covered floor hooping using the legs here…but check out this video for some really helpful tips on leg hooping floor work:

4 Easy Grab Bag Tips + Tricks To Hoop & Dance Happy

Dance Hoop Play Sing Create Flow Be You from Hip The HooplaWhat can help tweak your Hoop/Dance/Movement practice? Here’s a few tips and tricks to add to your mental note’s bag, plus a bonus!

by Ché Rippinger

 

1. Make Time. Yep-Craft your own clock. Well really carving out a bit of the schedule you currently over-cram with everything else-important and not. Sometimes a whole hour is unrealistic, and a half hour even still may be too much to fit in, too. But 5 minutes is doable for anyone. That’s just, “turn on the music, grab the hoop(s) and have at it for one song.” And for the best in your body…

2. Start very slow…warm up…jam and play…cool down. Sometimes we skip these simple steps, and then our bodies let us know how and why that’s not a good idea. Start simply with an over all wiggle, shimmy, or anything movement-wise, that is gentle getting the blood flowing to all the big body parts. Roll your head and shoulders, sway the rib cage, rock the hips, bend and flex the legs, feet, arms and hands. Start out with smaller motions and then progress to bigger ones, then dial it back down to small again. Simple-Oui?!

3. Keep an area reasonably clear for your dance/hooping/yoga/movement/meditation practice. If you have a dedicated space–or at least one that is easily convertible so you can double-duty the area…you will be more motivated to use it. If you cannot show it to others, or you have to close the door on it, then how much happy inspiration and sweetly calling your name is it doing for you?!

4. Just Dance! Sometimes we are so hyper-focused on getting whatever new trick or move, that we don’t connect them very well, or infuse our love of hooping and dance with our own personal style. It doesn’t matter what your background is…whatever– bring it to the table! Dance it out! If you are alone, who cares what you look like. And if you are with others…whatever you think is goofy, may appear fabulous and inspirational for someone else (it happens All the time!).

Ha! #5…A Bonus Tip:
5. Connect with people! Online and in-person groups, classes, and jams will join you with others experiencing similar issues, questions, and advice and is great for sharing your little progress points.

As always, go forth and hoop, dance and laugh yourself happy!

Come experience a “Grab Bag ‘O Goodies” with us! Tuesdays at 6:30pm and Saturdays at 10am with Hip The Hoopla at Red Elephant Workshop in Denver, Colorado (244 Sante Fe Drive, 80223 in the Arts District) .

Super Cool Things To Do In Denver

Che Rippinger of Hip The Hoopla- Fun Interesting Things To Do In DenverDenver Has Hooping, Belly Dance, Aerial, Flow, Fire, Circus, Burlesque and More!

Did you know the WOW factor that is our Denver Mile High city (all 5280 feet) hosts all kinds of unique performing and learning feasts? We have a huge community of Hoop dancers, belly dancers, aerialists, flow artists, fire performers, circus presentations and a bustling burlesque community, too!

You don’t have to wait for Cirque du Soleil to set up the big tents for big bucks, either (though they always do a phenomenal show).

Here’s a few unique Denver Area Location Finds, which should be on your radar, even/especially if it’s off the beaten path:

Lannie’s Clock Tower Cabaret (in the heart of downtown Denver downstairs in the infamous Clock Tower Building)–with Naughty Pierre and some luscious shows including burlesque, aerial, comedy, jazz and even drag queens!

Boulder Circus Center (Boulder, Colorado)-flow artistry in the form of shows, classes and more. It’s a two-story building in Boulder built by jugglers and fostered and supported by a huge community of creative people.

The Fusion Factory (Denver, Colorado)-Incredible artwork, artists, shows, parties, and festivals. Home to the Denver Costume Collective and artist potluck nights. Fire spinning, lights, dj’s, original art, body painting, preparation for Burning Man and Apogea (Colorado’s version of Burning Man) are just some of the things you can find at this corner building in Denver warehouse district.

The Mercury Cafe (Denver, Colorado)-an eclectic mix of live music, dance lessons, performances, poetry readings, film screenings–not to mention a sustainable restauant and bar that supports local, fresh healthy delicious organic food with a unique bohemian, elegant artistic atmosphere.

And for some Mind Blowing Events that are eclectic, artistic…and so very far from boring:

Elevation (Golden, Colorado)-an annual experience that brings together amazing belly dance, music, costumes, workshops, shopping and more eyeliner, bindi’s, bellies, glitter, leather, tassels and tribal costumes, than is probably legal.

Spin Summit (Colorado Springs, Colorado)-an annual flow community gathering of international & national & Colorado instructors, performers, healers, creatives & vendors which include such genres as hoop dancing, fire dancing, poi spinning, contact juggling, staff, flow wand and many other things you’ve probably never heard of!

Colorado Raindance Festival (Georgetown, Colorado)-a new Rocky Mountain fundraising festival held at Shadow Mountain Ranch in the historical mountain community of Georgetown (where the infamous Sonic Bloom Festival is held).

Sample, Enjoy and Share these… you just might set off an avalanche of interesting!
