Hey everyone! It’s been such a long, long time. I’m sorry for my prolonged absence. It was mostly because I went and got married in October and decided to take a few weeks off from extracurricular activities to spend some time with my new husband. My new name is Leslie Loges. Kind of exciting.
I’m here to announce NEW HOOPDANCE CLASSES! I’ll have two adult hoopdance sessions at the Herndon Community Center this January. I’ll have classes starting Sunday, Jan. 6 at 2 p.m. and classes starting Thursday, Jan. 10 at 6:45 p.m. The sessions are eight weeks long and cost roughly $47-$62 depending on whether or not you’re a Town of Herndon resident.
Signup for the classes begins this week. Herndon residents can start signing up on Dec. 5 at 10 a.m., and non-Herndon residents can start signing up on Dec. 11 at 10 a.m. You just need to go to http://www.herndon-va.gov/webtrac. Here’s the class descriptions and numbers so you can find them easier:
Hoop Dance Age 13 & up
Using the hoop on the waist, legs, arms, hands, hips and more burns between 400- 600 calories an hour, and provides a great full-body workout while encouraging creative movement and expression. Provide your own adult-sized hoop or purchase one from the instructor. There are eight one-hour sessions. Town of Herndon residents pay $47 and non-residents pay $62.
• January 6-February 24, Sundays 2-3 p.m.
Class no. 369930.70
• January 10-February 23, Thursdays 6:45 p.m.
Class no. 369930.40
This will be a mixed level class and good for those looking to further their skills, start fresh from beginner or just want to commit to regular practice and are looking to spend time with more local hoopers.
I can’t tell you all how much I miss teaching. My students help refresh me and leave me feeling inspired and energized. I can’t wait to get back in the hoop with you, or meet you in the hoop for the first time! I’ll start working on some new playlists for you in the meantime.
And until next time kids, I’ll leave you with a wedding photo or two. Or more.
