New Covid-19 Update
I am very sorry to report that there are no Outoftheblue hoop classes currently running (as at 23/08/2020). The last hoop class this year was on March 9th. Just after that class, the three venues I hire shut their doors owing to Covid-19, and today they are still not available to me for hire. I am hoping to start classes soon, but this is not yet definite, and no date is set. I am looking for alternative solutions, both indoors and outdoors. If and when classes re-start, they will be different from before in a few ways. Here are the main differences.
I am not going to make many changes to the information on this Outoftheblue website until I know what is going to be happening with classes. This means that the information on the Classes page regarding times, dates, venues, prices, etc. is out of date while things are in limbo.
I am very lucky in that I have space in my garage where I can hang a hoop, so I have been able to hoop through lockdown. I have recorded what I've been doing, and put together 12 collages of 108 different hoop moves. I've also labelled the moves with the hoop move name and the grade (Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced). You can see the collages here.
I have also written a personal account of my hooping activity through lockdown. It was a very valuable time for me in several ways. You can read the article here.
Yours hopefully and hoopfully,
