Lee Jeffries and Lucy Ford are proud to present A Weekend Of Hoop Dance. Join us for 7 hours of dance focused flow, footwork, and choreography. As the event name states, this weekend will be INTENSE! We will cover concepts and theories of dance to add a whole new element to your hooping. With both of our extensive backgrounds in movement arts, knowledge in multiple dance genres, and teaching experience, these workshops were designed to take your hooping and dancing to the next level!

Day 1 - March 9th// 3-7pm
FOLDS & FOOTWORK with Lucy Ford — my two favorite things that work really well together! This workshop will have you focusing on using multiple parts of your body at once to create a complete movement. We will begin with basic footwork technique and patterns without our hoops to understand our bodies better. After a short break, we will break down my theory of folds and the many variations. To wrap it up, we will do a short combo bringing together folds and footwork. 
*This class is a great place to start if you're trying to add a dance element to your flow or expand on your dance skills.

FREE HAND MOVEMENTS & SUSTAINED SPINNING with Lee Jeffries -- In this 2 hour workshop we will discuss and practice free hand movements and techniques. The hands are not often used to their fullest potential.. As we explore different avenues of movement and various cultures of dance, we can then begin to understand how to articulate and story tell. Once we feel comfortable with our hands, we will then begin to utilize the magic of sustained spinning from varying capacities from on/off body, core, and even HEAD hooping!
