GRAND FALLS-WINDSOR, NL — There is no athletic ability required to take park in the hooping workshop Dance NL is offering in Grand Falls-Windsor Oct. 14.

What is hooping you may ask? It’s a combination of a fitness and dancing using a weighted hula-hoop. They’re not your average hula hoops you find for children in the spring and summer, these hoops have a weight of five plus pounds, making it quite a workout.

“It’s going to be a really fun class for [both] physical and mental health,” said Leslie Pierce. Pierce is a former member of the FarOut Fitness Hoop Troupe and she will be leading the workshop in Grand Falls-Windsor.

If you’re wondering what this kind of hoop dancing will look like you can visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5gmzs68Ds0 to see video of the Hoop Troupe in action.

To register for the workshop or to find out more information e-mail Leslie Pierce at lesliepierce@gmail.com. The workshop is open to teens and adults of all athletic abilities.
