The Dance Shack


Part of our Aerial classes.


Using an aerial hoop we teach you how to utilise the apparatus to let you fly!

Aerial Hoop is a fantastic way to introduce yourself to the world of aerial arts.

A typical Hoop lesson will start with a thorough warm up, a strength and conditioning section, a recap of the previous classes moves, new moves, a section of choreography and a cool down.

Here at The Dance Shack we understand that everyone is different and that every student needs equipment that suits their size and needs… Which is why we have so many different sizes and styles of hoop.

Like all of our apparatus based classes, Hoop is taught using a syllabus which is broken down into levels. Each level is broken down into moves appropriate to the level being worked on, a family of moves, where variants of a chosen move are delved into further to show students how small variations create greater changes and offer personalisation of moves, a selection of combinations, level appropriate strength and conditioning as well as dynamic moves. At the end of each level, every student is assessed to ensure that they are progressing well and that they are ready to move onto the next level of training.

We are also lucky enough to be able to offer both single and double point hoops meaning that students can develop a versatility which cannot be achieved through training only on one type of hoop.

All of our Hoop classes are with the use of spinners, meaning that right from the very start of training students can get used to building their foundation experiencing the movement and sense of freedom that using a spinning hoop can bring.

If you are looking for a great workout, with the benefits of building muscle, increasing stamina and getting your feet off the ground then Hoop might just be the class for you.
