Hooping since 2008 Sandy-Dee has been instrumental in growing the CT hoop community and has been teaching since 2011. Her passion is sharing the life lessons learnt inside the hoop and encouraging people to explore their potential beyond what they perceive as possible.
Comparing ourselves, judging ourselves, sitting and waiting in the Hoop Doldrums are some of the unhappy places we can find ourselves along our hoop journey and even in life. This workshop is a kick up the bum to get you feeling inspired again, and to keep you inspired.

Balance in every Opportunity
We’ve all messed around with balancing different objects at some point in our lives – a broomstick, a stack of cards (or shot glasses) or a water bottle on your head. This balance workshop will take you into the fundamentals of balance with your hoop and how you can move with and use balance when you spin.
- Basics of balance
- Explore different body parts
- Rolling with “mistakes”
