  • 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.

USC instructor

Jessy Verkoeijen bought her first hoop 6 years ago. She discovered the tricks and flow of hoop dance. It was the start of her hoop dance addiction. Attracted by the challenge, the sense of freedom, dance and fun, she keeps developing her skills during hoop dance retreats along with inspiring hoop dance artists. She finished the instructors training at Movin’ Circle (Karin de Wit). Now she can share her passion and the positive effects of hoop dance on her body and mind with her students!
