Some quick tips:
1. Step to the side as the hoop passes from one side to the other. It looks cooler and is more fun this way!
2. When moving into the jump, be sure to hop through the hoop when it crosses in front of your body. And when you come out of it, continue the cross onto the opposite side (this will keep your move fluid).
3) When learning the figure 8, it’s helpful for your mom or dad to stand behind you and do the move along with you… that way, you can learn together!
