SalsaHOOP workshop:
Caterina Suttin and Kristina Sutcliffe have been working together, combining their unique approaches to movement and hooping to develop SalsaHOOP and Twin Rhythms. SalsaHOOP is the fusion of Latin Dance and Rhythms with Hoop Technique. Caterina and Kristina have discovered that by using the body fully and adding footwork can facilitate learning of simple and complex hoop techniques. The teaching technique that has evolved is accessible for the beginner to advanced hooper and can be done with one to four hoops.
Caterina shares her mastery of highly technical hoop tricks, drills and breakdown of these techniques while Kristina shares her vast knowledge of body movement, complex rhythms and choreography and together they create a fusion of saturated, intentional movement with the inherent poly rhythms of dance and hoop techniques and mix it into a hot, fiery and fully embodied dance that is SalsaHOOP and Twin Rhythms.
