That’s why I love Twin Hoops
When I started playing with doubles, my life changed. Expressing myself through hoop dance came much easier with doubles. Twin hooping is beautiful, it looks captivating. You can do tons of exciting stuff with two hoops that you can’t do with one. You can create many shapes you can’t do with just one hoop. Twin hooping is interesting for its versatility, it provides for a great variety and really offers a different perspective.
Twins are a lot like poi. Like poi, it requires a higher level of discipline and learning, and this is the most commonly drawn parallel between the two art forms. Some people even suggest that twins are more difficult than poi because you have to switch your grip to do turns and multiplebeat weaves, whereas with poi you have a solid grip the whole time. Twin hooping draws on a lot of poistyle moves and forms mesmerizing symmetrical patterns.
Benefits for body: doubles offers twice the muscle discipline and workout. For people who hoop for fitness, doubles are a great way to slim/define both arms instead of favoring one arm.
It improves your coordination. It presents a whole new challenge to synchronize both sides of your body to move both simultaneously and opposite of each other. Double hoops require coordination, an understanding of symmetry, and lots of practice. You could do onbody moves with one hoop and offbody with another, which is a great perk.
And finally: It’s a challenge. It’s something different that makes you happy to attempt and explore it. With doubles you able to think in an entirely new way and create unique patterns.
Better yet, doubles always steal the show because creating symmetry is captivating.
