Announcing the First Annual Michigan Hoop Dance Retreat!
This retreat will feature a variety of hoop dance workshops throughout the course of the weekend. You’ll meet up with 35 other hoop dancers from all over Michigan to learn loads of new hoop tricks and techniques on the sandy beaches of the Straits of Mackinaw. From doubles and on-body core work, to learning how to dance and flow with your hoop, this retreat will feature Michigan local hoop dance instructors who are committed to sharing the hoop love throughout our state.
Who can attend?
If you live in or love Michigan and you are a hooper then you can attend.
For your own enjoyment, it is recommended that you can already waist hoop and know a handful 0f off-body hoop tricks. You should have a good grasp (literally and figuratively) on your hoop, but you don’t have to be “advanced”…whatever that means.
**This is an 18 & older event. Due to insurance and liability issues, this retreat is limited to attendants who are 18 years of age and older.

**Location subject to change. Final destination within 30 miles of Mackinaw City.

When is the retreat?
August 12-14, 2016
Hoop camp starts on Friday night with the arrival of our first attendants. Hoopers will set up camp and have free time to explore or check out the city. There will be an informal jam Friday evening.
On Saturday morning, plan on being ready to hoop bright and early. With at least 4 workshops to get through, we’ll have a busy day of laughing, learning, and sharing with each other. Don’t worry because there will still be time to relax, check out the beach, or go for a walk. This is a retreat after all!
On Saturday night we’ll have a group bonfire and hoop jam right on the beach. (Yes – we want you to bring your fire hoops!)
Sunday is informal as hoopers plan their trips back home and get packed up. We’ll have a group breakfast together before heading back. Stay in the city as long as you like, but campground checkout is at noon.
