Palm Spin Hula Hoop Tutorial

palm spin hula hoop tutorial

This hula hoop trick 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.  I recommend practicing in balancing the hoop on your palm along with taking these steps to performing the palm spin. Here we go from vertical hand hooping straight onto an open palm spin. You can purchase dance hoops here handmade by myself.
