More Information

  • Charlotte Hoopsters show off their skills
  • Hoop tips

    The Sunday hoop jam is 4:30-6:30 p.m. at STUDIO1212, 1212 E. 10th St. Go around to the back, using the driveway to the left. The back door is in the middle of the building. Follow the music.

    Info: www.studio1212.info

    You might be tempted to move your hips in a circle when you put that hoop around your middle. Don’t do it – that’s a sure way to send it crashing to the ground in a few second.

    Instead, place one foot in front of the other and move your hips either side to side or back to front. That’ll keep the hoop spinning longer.
