Day 2 – “ARMageddon”- Arm Roll Technique w/ Benjamin Berry
Saturday March 17th, 2018 6-8pm

This single hoop workshop will delve into the rich and under-appreciated realm of arm rolls. Together, we will explore four postures of contact roll technique, as well as three motifs: continuous rolls, reversals, and combinations. Numerous entries will be demonstrated, including from a weave, grip, toss, and balance, as well as transitions and conclusions to the rolls. All levels are welcome, from those with little or no experience with body rolls to seasoned hoopers who want fancy variations and combinations.

INSTRUCTOR BIO:
Benjamin Berry is a hoop dancer, instructor, and performer based out of Buffalo, NY who has been hosting workshops across the country since the summer of 2015. That year he connected with the online hooping community by participating in Hooping Idol Season 5 and the Electric Forest Hoop Troupe contest, ultimately earning him Hooping.org‘s “Male Hooper of the Year 2015,” as well as nominations for “Tutorial of the Year,” “Instructor of the Year,” and “Video of the Year.” He enjoys blurring gender boundaries in his performances, and helping his students become more confident, embodied, and expressive.
