Kenna Hoops workshops at Dovercourt, Sep. 26-28, 2014

The creative and fabulous Kenna Hoops is touring Canada this Fall, and she's making a stop in Ottawa! Register now for Emma's upcoming workshops at Dovercourt Recreation Centre.

Friday Sep. 26, 6:30-9:30pm - Fancy Fails, course code 93757, $55 (early bird price)
Everyone drops the hoop! It’s part of learning, the creative process and an inevitable problem you will face when performing, whether it’s on a stage or just trying to show off some moves to friends after a few drinks!! This workshop will teach you how to pick up the hoop in ways that’ll make it seem like you dropped it on purpose. Easy starts, kick ups, springs, spins, wedgies and even a few more acrobatic variations! Turn your ‘fails’ into your best tricks!

Sat. Sep. 27, 4-7pm, Crotch Extravaganza, course code 93758, $55 (early bird price)
A whole workshop devoted to hoop tricks involving the nether regions. They’ll be crotch flips, slams, grabs, rolls and jumps as well as a load of wedgies. Get ready to put some thrust into it! This is an all levels workshop with all tricks covered from the beginning and more advanced/two hoop variations for those desiring a greater challenge! Please bring a lightweight hoop or 2.

Sun. Sep 28, 1-4pm Mismatched Twins, course code 93759, $55 (early bird price)
This is twin hooping with a difference! Explore the use of 2 different sized hoops to create a visually impressive effect. The capacity for one hoop to pass through the other adds a multitude of possibilities. It’s great fun to play with and there’s loads of new tricks to be found with this interesting variation on twin hooping. This is an all levels workshop. All tricks will be covered with one hoop for newer hoopers and then we’ll add the second hoop for the more intermediate/advanced. Please bring all the hoops you are happy to share! We’re going to have to swap them around so everyone has the correct hoop combination. This workshop will also include some content from Kenna Hoop's "Twins: Change your Perspective" workshop.

Register online at, by phone at 613-798-8950 ext. 0 or in person at Dovercourt Recreation Centre, 411 Dovercourt Ave, Ottawa, ON.
