When I began hooping 7 years ago, I never dreamed I'd end up teaching. I hadn't ever taught anything, and never expressed a want to. But as my journey continued, and people started asking me "wow, I'd love to learn, do you teach", I realized that I NEEDED to spread this joy around. I guess I'd equate to someone who has found religion, and wants to tell everyone, all the time. If you've met me, you know the hoop is my life lol.
So maybe you're asking yourself if this is something you should do. My answer is YES. If it is even something you've considered flippantly, that's your sign. Maybe you aren't the best hooper. SURPRISE, some of the best instructors I've had, the ones who can really break things down, can successfully teach a move they haven't perfected themselves. On the other hand, I've taken classes from some amazing dancers who I just couldn't convey exactly how to execute any trick. Teaching isn't just about the skill you're doing, but is about connecting with people, encouraging them, deciphering which way they learn best, and creating a community.
After 7 years and multiple certifications myself, I've created the HoopCubed Hoop Dance Teacher Training program, and I'm so excited for the live training, happening September 23-24, 2017, in The Woodlands, Texas, 20 miles north of Houston. In this 2 day LIVE training, you will learn all the ins and outs of hooping and hoop dance, including 20 specific moves/tricks, how to coordinate them into choreography and combinations, thoughtful and concise ways to teach and troubleshoot, how to make your own hoops, marketing your new business, and so much more!
