After some brief hula hooping instructions, demonstration, and a short performance of where Hoop Dance can take a performer, the group gets to try hula hooping themselves, while Pinto Bella walks around to give one on one instruction, trouble shooting, and help with new tricks. After the group has all had opportunities to play and hoop around, we take some time for organized games that teach team work and communication with the hoop!
To finish the day, every one finds a seat, we lower the lights, and Pinto Bella performs one last number with her LED light up hoops. Of course, we keep this a surprise for the kids until the final moment!
