Course Content

I’ve put all the knowledge I have gained in my 14 years of hoop teaching which has included building the award winning Bristol Hoop Community via weekly in-person classes/courses, creating & touring workshops & running & teaching at conventions around the world.


Theory Part of the Course (for everyone):

The theory part of the course is a mix of Zoom group classes, video classes you do in your own time & Zoom accountability / Q&A sessions with Emma to make sure you keep up with the videos 🙂

Once you enroll we begin with 3 x 2hr Zoom sessions that cover some core teaching theory and discussions.

In these sessions we get to know each other and you will discover your personal learning style, superpowers and challenges so you can use this knowledge throughout the rest of the program.


After this it is up to you to complete the comprehensive video course which includes:

  • How to make sure that your teaching includes all learning styles
  • Breaking down even the hardest trick into simple steps
  • Troubleshoot teaching any trick
  • The tools to add layers of complexity to challenge even the most advanced students
  • Identifying and dealing with different student archetypes
  • How to build different classes/workshops
  • How to teach Multi Level classes/workshops
  • Ideas for warm ups, cool downs and ice breakers
  • Use of Creativity Cards & Flow Cards (both provided) both as a teaching tool or for creating whole classes
  • The difference between a class, a beginners workshop and a convention workshop
  • How to teach Multi Level classes/workshops
  • A breakdown of my Beginners Foundation course structure and content
  • I’ll share with you my knowledge of what event organisers are looking for in teacher applications, how to go about teaching specialist workshops outside of your home base, filming/editing tutorials/demos and the use of social media for self promotion and hoop business

All on an easy to navigate course player with Speed control options 🙂


On Saturdays I am in our ATT Zoom room for 2 HRS to answer your questions!!

This is your time to pick my brain!! Maybe you have any questions you have about the video content or you want me to have a look at your new website or you need some help with how to teach a certain trick.

These Q&A sessions are completely optional but all of the sessions are recorded so you always have forever access to all the answers and discussions. if you can make it or not

I split it into each question so you can watch what is specifically useful to you 🙂

You will be also be a part of the WHATSAPP GROUP where I set regular accountability challenges and share additional (optional) homework exercises that are designed to help to build up your brand and improve your online presense.
