Some recommended online hoop tutorials

UPDATED: March 2018

My hands down, number one recommendation for online hooping lessons are those offered by Deanne Love of She has several free lessons available on YouTube.

Sandra Sommerville (aka, SaFire) at is also an amazing instructor. She was the very first hooper I learned from. Unlike the (albeit awesome) free tutorials that are available on YouTube, you can download the lessons and watch them at anytime---no internet connection required. All updates and additions to the class group you buy are included in the one time only purchase price.

For more free hooping tutorials on YouTube, take a look at the following:

*Fire Groove girls on Expert Village. Here's a link to one:
