Radtastic Class Descriptions
Ins & Outs
This workshop covers duck-ins. We'll go over the mechanics on getting a smooth, perfect duck-in in the vertical plane. We'll go over the different hand-placements and transitional possibilities leading in/out of a traditional duck-in. A duck-in is essentially a brief interruption of on-body amidst off-body movements, so we'll go over other types of duck-ins besides the traditional duck-in, including duck-ins leaning back, duck-ins in the horizontal plane, etc.
Bigger hoop is suggested
This workshop explores the transitional possibility of iso-flowers. We'll start with iso-flower basics and then dive deep into the transitional possibilities into and out of 2-hoops/1-hand techniques, incorporating weaves and other double-hoop concepts to get into the tricky hand-position of iso-flower easily and seamlessly.
Lo & BeFold: single-hoop folds
This class covers unconventional folds and explores the idea of incorporating folds as a transitional tool into just about any tricks. We'll go over the basics of a fold, explore different types of folds, and then jump into some combos which incorporate these different types of folds.

THE FLOW KITTEN
Rolls are a personal favorite that were also a struggle for me to learn when I began my hoop journey. Come to my rolls workshop to learn what helped me unlock rolls and I will also be sharing a few of my favorite variations!
I think wedgies are so fun and I find myself doing them a lot in my flow. Come to my wedgies workshop where I will be sharing a few of my favorite ways to add a little leg work into your flow! Learn the foundational moves to keep the hoop moving, fun variations and entry moves!
One of my favorite double-hoop illusions is the Goddess Machine. Come to my workshop and I will teach you some key drills to build muscle memory that will help you understand the movements involved with each hand and I will be sharing a full breakdown of the Goddess Machine.
"Big HOOP Energy"
Welcome to SASS CLASS flowmies! We will be learning a sassy hoop dance choreography that will have you feeling yourself in no time! I will break down each trick as we add on to the routine and leave some room for you to add your own flair as well. Together we will create a supportive, body positive environment where we can all feel like our best most badass selves. Nailing the choreo is optional… cheering is mandatory!
Isos and illusions!
Come learn to dazzle the crowd with buttery isolations and illusions! We will explore miming techniques, basic fundamentals of isolations, and getting your whole body involved in the magic. Then we will break down some of my favourite isolation and ghosting tricks! We’ll end with some time to get creative, mixing miming and isos into your own flow!
Intro to Belly Dance Fusion
Have you ever looked at belly dance videos and thought "Uuuuh yeah buddy, I could never do that (...but secretly, I wish I could)"? Then this workshop is for you!
We will look at posture and some basic belly dance movement vocabulary, and learn how to use our most basic prop: our bodies! Get ready to get to your shimmy on and enter the wonderful world of isolations!
Hoop VS Belly Dance Fusion
Learning how to hoop involves a few components, among others: tricks and flow. There are many avenues for hoop trick inspiration, but sometimes it can be tricky (hehe!) to breakdown flow ideas. In this workshop we will layer elements of belly dance fusion with hoop flow. Learn some of Alana’s favourite combinations and unlock new flow movements.
Ah, I remember starting my hoop journey. As I look back nostalgically on my old videos, I recognize my dear old friend that accompanied me on every flow session. Maybe you also had such a friend. Yes, I’m taking about the infamous...Claw Hand (or his sneaky cousin, Floppy Hand)!
When we focus on tricks, we can sometimes spend our energy on landing them, and forget all about engaging and "prettying" our extremities. In this workshop, we will learn to focus on how to have “pretty hands”, and a few of Alana’s favourite hand and arm patterns. This workshop will be flow based rather than trick based.
