Hoop Flow Workshop with

Emma Kenna Kerr


workshop description

DAY 1: 

Let’s Get Waisted

Everything but classic waist hooping! Lots of tricks using the contact points on the sides of the waist. One hoop folds, flips, breaks, coins & escalators with twins variations for those that want an extra challenge

Show a Little Leg!

If it’s one thing I love doing it’s hoop tricks with my legs ? This workshop is all about tricks with the legs and feet while standing up. We’ll be learning some pick ups, wedgies, foot passes, leg breaks, foot rolls and throws from the feet. With each trick you’ll learn ways to incorporate these tricks into your normal dance.

I recommend bare feet and shorts for this workshop.
If possible please bring a hoop that is the same size or smaller than your inside leg length

DAY 2: 

Unusual Elbows

In this workshop we’ll be exploring the use of the elbows in a more fluid style. Constantly moving on and off the elbows, using them as a guide or a resting point rather than a place to spin the hoop. We’ll be focusing specifically on the use of the outside break elbow grab and folded rolls to transition in countless ways and removing any awkwardness you may feel about incorporating elbow tricks into your hooping.

Turning with Twins and The Fountain!

We will go through the 3 main positions (forwards weave, reverse weave and windmill) of the fountain and some variations of those.  At each main shape I’ll teach the ‘basic’ move with more advanced variations where needed. 

We will work on all the grip switches required to turn in a circle and then how to pass through the windmill.

Suits all levels of hooper although perhaps not absolute beginner. So if you’re new you may want to give yourself a head start by attending the doubles classes offered by flowground or practicing some of these: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLHgX1qajn8CMWZXxnnLA7o3WXcQpOzeE1

Facilitator – Emma Kenna Kerr


Emma discovered hooping in 2007 while she doing her PhD. She hung up her lab coat in 2010
and took the leap into full time hooping. She has never looked back! Emma is a hugely
experienced teacher and is known internationally as a master of wedgies and twin hoops. Emma
is now based predominately out of Berlin but it’s hard to pin her down to one place 😛 If there’s
hoopers, she’ll be there 🙂 A key player in the growth of the outstanding Bristol Hoop community,
Emma has since had the opportunity to learn from and play with some of the world’s leading
hoopers during her travels around the world. Emma’s combination of high technical expertise,
extensive teaching experience, enthusiasm for sharing and love of laughter make her hard to
forget! Emma was the winner of Teacher and Fire Hooper of the Year in the 2016 Hoopies, UK
Hooper of the Year 2017 and is the creator and main coordinator of the SWhoop (South West
Hoop Conference) which has received the award for Best Hoop event 🙂
