Radtastic Class Descriptions

TECHSWAN

 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.

Level

Bigger hoop is suggested

Flower Power
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.

Level

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.

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.

Pretty Hands

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.
