Your Teachers at Summer Hoopfest
Tal Fransky is a Hula Hoop Dancer from Tel Aviv. She has been dancing with the hoop since 2014 and teaches and performs professionally.
Tal has taught at events in Israel, Austria, Italy, France, Germany, Portugal, UK, Netherlands, Slovenia & Norway.
Tal is well known and well loved in the International Hoop community for her elegant and individual hoop style.
With over 8 years of training in modern and classical dance, Tal feels that she has found her favourite form of self expression dancing with a Hoop. She views her dance as a form of meditation, flowing with her circle and exploring the delicate bonds between body, prop and space.
In her workshops and classes Tal teaches combinations and choreographies of tricks, moves and concepts that she has learnt throughout her Hoop journey thus far. Tal is particularly interested in how tricks can be fluidly pieced together to create a seamless fusion of dance and circus skill.
Her aim is for each student to experience and to feel their own natural dance with the Hoop.
