I am excited to be offering weekly summer drop in classes, Thursdays, at The Abbey Studio in Cumberland, 6:00 to 7:15pm. I look forward being your guide as we explore hoop skills and movement inspired by the elements.  These classes will be suitable for all levels as we focus on skill development, layering challenges as needed.  Tricks will be combined into sequences and circuits to help you integrate them seamlessly into your flow.  There will be no class July 20: The Abbey is hosting a special event.  Hoop classes will be $5 to $10 (suggested donation).
