[Trick]Turning on the hoop

On Thursday I discovered something really cool, a whole variety of new hoop tricks! I sometimes have troubles turning inside my room because my carpet is not very slippery. So I noticed that the outside of my hoops (just inside taped) is slippery. I stepped on my hoop and did a pirouette. Looks great and feels absolutely awesome.

You can turn in every direction. Just beware not to damage the hoop.

Troubleshooting: If you have trouble turning, look at my entry about turning with the hoop. You ave to step on the hoop just with the part you turn on. Most times you will turn on your toes so just step on it with the toes, not the whole foot. If you just step on one point of the hoop you won't break it. If you step in with the whole foot you might hurt your lovely hoop

I like to hear about your variations of this!

[Trick]Turning with the hoop I

Pirouettes

You can do vortex stops and then use the weight of the hoop to get you around the other direction. This is possible in all directions and en dehors/en dedans. While turning, you can either keep the hoop going on waist or chest or you can do a vortex. Feel free to experiment and tell me what you found out!

Chaîné

Chaîné is a turn where you do a half turn on each foot and go on and on. While turning you can either pass the hoop around your hips, do an isolated stall around your body or  keep the hoop at one place on your body. You can even stall the hoop on one side of your body so that it lookes like it is glues to your chest or your back e.g. I work on keeping the hoop on my knees while turning chaîné. Really hard!

Troubleshooting: Turning (except sustained spinning) always means you have to fix one point on the wall and look at it as long as possible. It is very important for you so you don't get busy. If you fall while turning, make sure that you can stand in the position you want to turn comfortably on demi-point.

Have fun alternating!

[Trick]Jeté Jump in

For Lefties:

This trick is a jump into the hoop from one leg to the other. You start with the hoop in the right hand, standing on left foot. Then you swing the hoop around your right side and jump forward to your right foot. Hold the hoop with your right hand in front of you (after the swing) and jump in. You are now standing with one foot (right one) in the hoop, the other one is lifted in the back (like Arabesque or Attitude). Your right hand holds the hoop and pushes it to the left. Now you hoop on one leg.

For Righties:

You start with the hoop in the left hand, standing on right foot. Then you swing the hoop around your left side and jump forward to your left foot. Hold the hoop with your left hand in front of you (after the swing) and jump in. You are now standing with one foot (left one) in the hoop, the other one is lifted in the back (like Arabesque or Attitude). Your left hand holds the hoop and pushes it to the right. Now you hoop on one leg.

Now try to smooth the jump and the push into each other so that it is like just one movement. Looks great! And not so hard.

Troubleshooting: Try the jump at first. It is a Grand Jeté landed on just one leg. Land in plié with back leg high enough so the hoop doesnt hit it. Then try the jumping in, afterwards try the pushing with one hand.  Then it should work.

Still trouble or questions? You like it? Comment!
