Spin Matsuri Events
10/10: Japan Hoop Instructors’ Conference. Japan’s first conference for hoop dance and hoop fitness instructors. All certified and/or practicing hoop teachers are welcome. The one-day event will cover topics related to teaching. Every participant will prepare at least one mini-lesson, presentation, or lead a discussion. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for an invitation.
10/14: WHD Dance class @ FAB. Tink is taking over Kana’s Beginners and Beyond hoop class to teach the World Hoop Day Dance. Dancing with hoops indoors on a Friday night – hooray! Let’s get ready for our WHD event on 11/12. After a good warm up, we’ll go through the dance steps together. Then we’ll focus on adding flair to the basic moves and creating awesome freestyle sections and solos. Cost: 2750 (FAB class price). Tink will donate 1000 yen per student to World Hoop Day to send hula hoops kids in Tohoku and around the world. Directions to FAB: http://www.fabacademytokyo.jp/contact.php
10/23: 4th Sunday Spin. Monthly hoop jam at Yoyogi Park. Join us for an afternoon of hoop play and dance. Bring your hoops or get into your own groove with juggling, poi or any combination of flow arts. Pack a picnic, if you like. Everyone is welcome. Be ready to learn some hoop dance steps as we practice the 2011 World Hoop Day Dance (from 3pm). World Hoop Day is 11/11 and we are cooking up some fun activities to raise money for hoops to send to Tohoku and on the Peace Boat in 2012. 4th Sunday Spin is FREE, as always. Cancelled if it rains. You’ll find us on the Harajuku side of the park, in the grass near the kiosk.
