Geoffrey Szuszkiewicz (Canada)
Geoffrey Szuszkiewicz originates from Canada and is currently based in Berlin. He has been body-rocking inside the hoop for 12+ years and performing, teaching and attending conventions on both sides of the Atlantic. He studies and practices the art of hoop dance diligently, both through self-exploration and attending workshops. He enjoys mixing movement styles from various backgrounds to transform them into something new. His hoop explorations focus heavily on dance and integrating hoop moves into our dance flow, and his style is often considered one of a kind.
This workshop will focus primarily on off-body techniques with a large focus on isolation play, while still maintaining a focus on dance. It will consist of different drills to create typical isolations, cats-eye movements, around the body isolations, ghosting, two handed and one handed play, and using our other arm to find different shapes. We will play with different linear planes both horizontal and vertical. I want to introduce a couple concepts that illustrate control versus lack of control with the hoop. And of course, I will be pushing you all to find your own creative movement as well by bringing in dance elements and utilizing are whole bodies while playing with isolations. I also have a whole section on foldy off body movements ranging from one-handed helicopters, palm spins, to on and off body wobbles, and a couple coin tosses.
