Hoop dance at the USC: how does it work?

  • Beginners course of 9 weeks, 75 minutes per class.
  • You learn the basics: tricks over your whole body as well as ‘off body’.
  • You learn how to dance with the hula hoop and integrate different tricks.
  • Hoop dance is playful and above all a lot of fun.
  • In case of nice weather we workout outside.

Wear and socks

Wear comfortable but tight fitting clothing or wear with grip. Avoid fluffy or satin wear. You dance bare footed or on socks.

USC instructor

Tamara Zijtsel rediscovered the hoop 6 years ago. She discovered the connection, the challenge and the relaxation that the hoop brought. After years of giving short workshops and hoola hooping in the park, she took the Advanced Teacher Training of international hoop guru Hoopingmad Emma Kenna. Now she is ready to share her hooplove with you.
