★★★★★

"You won’t be disappointed, even if it’s a class of moves you already know. If you are contemplating whether to enrol or not, definitely go for it! You will find new ways of looking at them & moving with them." Missina Lee

★★★★★

"Safire explains things so well! I was struggling to refine many of the moves that I had learned from random free tutorials on youtube. I find the way that Safire explains things excellent and I have already corrected many of the little things I was doing wrong. I wish I'd signed up sooner as I know I would be farther in my hooping skills by now, rather than wasting time trying to figure out what to do, I would have been practicing the correct technique. Thank you so much - one very happy hooper!!!" Dawn Creevy

Finally!! I can do the three beat weave!

by Melissa Collins
I had been trying to learn the three beat weave for the longest time and after this class, I can finally do it! Thank you Safire!

An Investment That Lasts

by Heather Hughes
I delved into Safire's courses at the beginning of my hoop journey in 2008. Even though Youtube, Instagram, etc. tutorials have become more abundant, the structured, clearly articulated content from this course helped me develop a strong foundation for my doubles practice. The sessions build on one another, guiding spinners through interrelated movements that lend themselves to transitions, sequences, and the "tech" behind Safire's charming, detailed instruction. I hadn't logged into Hoop City since long before the website update, but I still have access to ALL my classes. And looking back over the content, I'm delighted to see things I still haven't explored! Thank you for making stellar content, Safire, and keeping it available over the years. ~ Tangled Macrame PS: The break-down of thread-the-needle takeouts and how to connect those with weaves is genius.
