Ann Humphreys Workshop & Master Class at Dovercourt!

FINALLY!! Ann Humphreys of the HoopPath has the green light to come to Canada! Her workshops will be Fri. Oct 7 & Sat. 8, 2011 in Ottawa at Dovercourt Recreation Centre

We know it's Thanksgiving weekend, but let's give Ann a big Ottawa welcome and hoop it up before turkey day! Here's some info from Ann about what she will be covering:

In the HoopPath Fundamentals class, we will review the HoopPath Core basics around which you build your dance with the hoop. Our focus will be primarily on the physical building blocks which are necessary to contain our hoop meditation. Course # 74018, $60, Fri. Oct. 7, 6:30-9:30pm. Assembly Hall, Dovercourt. 

In the HoopPath Master Class, we will take the opportunity to harness the meditative state on a deeper level. Using both Core and Off-Body techniques, we will create new dances together, sharing this sacred space in meditation. We will also access more nuanced and subtle levels of technique.  If you have taken the Fundamentals class, you will be fully prepared for the Master class. Join us! Course # 74019, $60, Sat. Oct. 8, 1-4pm. Assembly Hall, Dovercourt.

Register at Dovercourt Recreation Centre, online (click, then enter the course code number), by phone (613-798-8950 ext. 0) or in person. See the Workshops page for some video clips of Ann in action. If you have any questions, please email Trish at


Hoop Jam Fri. Apr. 8, 6:30-8pm at Dovercourt

We'll be hoop jamming in some daylight, as our days lengthen and Spring teases us with glorious sunshine (ok, what was with that little mid-day snow flurry today??).

Our special weekend guest, Ann Humphreys (HoopPath), is planning to attend our jam if she arrives in time from NYC. We'll have hoops & tunes. And there is still space in Ann's Master Class on Sunday, 2-5pm at Dovercourt. It's looking to be a hoopy weekend for sure!


More info & videos from Ann Humphreys

Ann sent a few more details about her upcoming HoopPath Workshops (Sat. Apr. 9 & Sun. Apr. 10 at Dovercourt Recreation Centre) as well as 3 recent clips. Two are practice videos following her return from Bali at the Sacred Circularities retreat, and the other is a profile about her classes in NYC. Check it out on the Workshop page, as well as details for registration. Spots are going fast. Let's show Ann how keen our Ottawa Hoop community is by selling this event out!
