There is something very empowering about being able to master a hula hoop trick. As much as I encourage new hula hooper’s to experiment and learn hula hoop tricks on and off body, I am a big advocate of encouraging people to learn all of the basics of hula hooping when starting out so that you can feel comfortable about switching from one hula hooping move to another.
This allows for you to flow all of your hula hooping tricks together effortlessly Having said this, I can’t deny the magic one feels when they have finally, after a lot of practice mastered a hula hoop trick.
The Palm Spin hula hoop trick is definitely a favorite for me, I just love adding this one in between switching from vertical to horizontal plane and vice versa. The Palm Spin makes a great way to create the illusion the hoop is spinning around your hand. It is a great hoop move to transition into on body hooping or off body hooping as you are able to move straight into vertical or horizontal plane.
Before you grab your hula hoop and have a good crack at this one, I recommend practicing balancing the hoop on your palm along with taking these steps to performing the palm spin. In this Palm Spin hoop trick tutorial we go from vertical hand hooping straight onto an open palm spin.
Have you ever tried to learn foot hooping and found it to be quite the challenge? Don’t worry you are not alone, hundreds of new hula hoopers who are learning to hula hoop experience the same difficulty with foot hooping that’s for sure!

Our wrist control here is key and as we practice this move we gain more control and strength in our wrists to control the hoop as we roll it across. This hula hoop trick can me tricky if not practiced properly, however with the write posture and stance you will master it in no time. Let me know how you go with it and more importantly, have fun while learning to hula hoop dance 🙂 Continue reading Learn how to do a Chest Roll Hula Hoop Trick
In this hula hoop tutorial, I explain how to do a continuous k roll which is also known as the continuous vertical chest roll. I love adding this hoop trick into my hoop dance flow because it adds a funky illusion that the hoop is rolling down my chest from my hands up above down to my receiving hand below.
You will find that the K Roll will help you practice your eye hand coordination plus give you a great arm workout! I have seen the k roll combined with hoop folds which looks incredible!
