Split Level Classes: This is a split level curriculum class which means there may be students from the Beginner and Intermediate Hoop levels in this class. Students registering for split level classes should be aware that more independence will be required as they work on their assigned movements while the instructor works with other students. All students in split level classes will get individualized instruction but should be prepared to also share the instructor with the rest of the class. Students may register in this class if they have taken Beginner Hoop or a higher level at least once previously. Split classes are a great place for students who are nearing the end of one level but are not quite sure they are ready to progress to the next level! See the Beginner and Intermediate Hoop level descriptions for more information about each level.
Beginner Hoop: Beginner Aerial Hoop is the next step in a students journey after Intro to Hoop. Students will expand their vocabulary of mounts, seated and standing poses, and poses under the bottom bar. They will also conquer interacting with the top bar of the hoop when they are ready and begin to work on inverting and pulling over the hoop. All students are unique and progress at their own pace, generally students should expect to spend 4-8 months minimum in the Beginner Hoop level.
Intermediate Hoop: Intermediate Aerial Hoop builds on students' strength and knowledge and begins to expand their ability to move around the hoop. Students will learn to roll over their hips and thighs and use unexpected body parts to hold their weight (elbows, ankles, hip joints, the list goes on!). Students’ grip strength will be challenged as they take on more challenging positions, moving their body weight outside of the hoop. A large emphasis will be on the ability to move fluidly between positions and developing an understanding of how positions are connected. Students will start to work on their first rolls around the bottom bar in this level! All students are unique and progress at their own pace, generally students should expect to spend 4-8 months minimum in the Intermediate Hoop level.
