Courtney Fagras: Hoopcamp Instructor 2017
Courtney Fagras (FB, @mushooproom & YouTube) is a hoop explorer and innovator from the Pacific Northwest. A hoop artist quite possibly of alien descent, Courtney has taught and performed at festivals all over the west coast and beyond. The winner of Hooping Idol season 5, Courtney is known for her wacky stage presence, and inventive style and she continues to push the envelope of hoop dance.
We will be exploring three hoop modalities that can be easily integrated into your flow to create new and innovative tricks. The modalities in this workshop include backspin, folds and coin-flips. I will teach tricks varying from beginner to advanced that utilize these methods, so there is something for everyone. This class is about giving you new concepts to grow your flow instead of just being entirely trick based.
Character Work with Hooping
In this class we will access different characters within ourselves and learn to integrate those characters into your hoop manipulation to create richer and more dynamic performances. This workshop may get silly, sultry, dramatic, or sad, so bring your imagination and lets bring your stage presence to the next level!
