The Hula Event is a parent-child hula hooping event led by world-class dancer and hooper Gabrielle Revlock. We will use the hula hoop as a tool to activate both body and mind, cultivating neuromuscular awareness, playfulness and generating lots of laughter and giggles. The event will include games, skill training and impro- visation. We will learn the difference between on-body hooping and off-body hooping, learn cool tricks and have a spontaneous and creative blast. Prior to the event, we will send a pair of high-quality hoops to each parent-child pair. The event is suitable for children ages 6-16 and for adult children of all ages. No dance or hula experience is needed.
