Lyra Flow


After every new lyra student learns foundational hoop poses, the next step is to explore the many paths into and out of these poses. Through this process "tricks" cease to be something separate from "transitions" and your movement on the hoop transforms from a set of tricks into a flow that is just as much about movement as it is about a pose. You'll leave the class with the theoretical tools to make your own combinations smoother.


For students with a current and regular lyra practice. Participants should be able to invert cleanly from the floor and from the bottom to the top bar as well as hold a front balance with no hands. Spinning is not required, but it is an element that will be explored and applied to choreographic sequences.
