Rico Titou (FR)
Rico travels around the globe, teaching and performing within the hoop. He‘s credited with the development of an epic style of hula hoop position or movement called Vertical’In Hooping. It is described as a technique to hoop vertically while keeping the body in an upright position. This effect is achieved with a combination of movements found in belly-dance and contact-staff skills. After 10 years playing hoop, Rico continues to reach new dimensions and discovery within the hoop. He has taught hundreds of workshops worldwide. He is a long time innovator of on-body hooping techniques. His unique angled style, and concepts of ‘vertical shoulder hooping’ have influenced hoopers world-wide. He’s constantly pushing the boundaries of his own skill, incorporating into his hooping new objects, elements of local terrain, and stylized upper body motion. Come learn from one of the greatest hooping talents from France.
This is an excellent opportunity to learn many aspects and variations of angled shoulder hooping.
