Part of the WHD Dance this year involves hoop dancing with a partner – creating a unique duet together prior to a choreographed section of the dance. To help you get a feel for duo moves and concepts, Ayumi, Kana, Tink, & Bekah demonstrated some of their ideas for you.
Here are five broad concepts for you and your partner to explore. Use any tricks you like and experiment with ways to match or mirror the moves, change levels, or face towards or away from each other. Bust out some silly play and don’t forget hoop hugs.
Our rehearsals show that duos are especially effective when the partners are close to each other, make eye contact, and touch.
