Student Recital Outcome

Saturday was Studio Spin’s second annual Student Recital and Instructor Showcase.  I performed to “Starlight” by MUSE, and did a hoop duet with another hooper, named Jen C., and we did our act to “Fever” by Peggy Lee.  You can see us up there after practicing in a local park with Jenny Hill, who choreographed and taught us the routine.  She also took the photo.

Overall, things went really well!  Of course, there were mistakes, and I am especially hard on myself after a performance, focusing on what went wrong, rather than look at the smiles on the faces of the people congratulating me on a good performance.  My husband Sam told me before I went on stage “to have fun,” and I did.  I usually do when I perform.

I ended my number with the following pose.  Yay!  Part one was done!  Jenny took that photo, too.

Me in my ending pose.

In the second part of the show, Jen C. and I did our sassy little number. Now, Jen C. has only been hooping since June.  And for her to get on stage and perform is awesome!  Well done, Jen C.!  To celebrate the momentous occasion, I made us fascinators for our hair to wear for our performance.

 

Oh, and my husband took this photo of Jen C. and I after the show.  It’s not the greatest photo, but you can still see our smiling faces.

There was a professional photographer there taking photos during performances, so I’ll share those once they come out.

Overall, all the performers rocked, and the audience loved the show.  We are awesome!

 

Two teeny tiny hoops!

Hoop Duet

Not only am I doing a solo act in the upcoming Studio Spin recital, I am doing a hoop duet to the song “Fever” by Peggy Lee with another hoop student, Jen!

Jen has only been hooping for about two months, but she’s quick study and is doing great.  She and her friend Lori joined in for Jenny’s hoop choreography series that was held last month.  We did a group routine to the same song, and it’s really cool!

Jen and I are the only ones from the class that are able to be at the recital, so Jenny modified the routine to be a duet.  We had to change a few things, but it works, and it works well.

So, it will be fun to do a hoop duet at the recital.  Jen, we are going to rock this!

Hoop Choreography Class Wrap-Up

Yesterday, a group of eight hoop students wrapped up a five week hoop choreography class taught by Jenny Hill at Studio Spin.  It was a great class, and we learned a lot!  And, it was a lot of fun, too.

Jenny taught us a group hoop choreography to the song “Fever” by Peggy Lee.  It’s a great song for a group of gals to hoop to.

A few of us will also be performing the choreography at Studio Spin’s student recital on August 6, 2016.  I’ll be one of those performers in the group, and I will be doing a solo act, as well.
