At the heart of each class is an emphasis on movement. Once the basics are mastered, students quickly add their own unique style to their newly acquired skills, and voila!  A beautiful hoopdancer is born!

Summer classes in NYC take place on Thursday evenings at 6:30 pm in John Jay Park, located on 77th Street between York Avenue and the river. Class is moved to a nearby location in the event of inclement weather.  Please contact Sheryl to sign up for class or request more information.

In addition, from June to August, Fitnotic will be offering free hoopdance classes to the public in connection with the 34th Street Partnership, on Broadway Boulevard right in front of Macy’s, on Mondays from 6-7 pm.  Feel free to come out and join us – hoops will be provided.

Not in NYC?  No problem!  Sheryl can provide hoopdance instruction over Skype for you and your family or friends.  Contact her to set something up!


Private sessions in NYC and instruction via Skype are ideal for both beginners and more advanced hoopers who want personalized instruction at a time and place that is convenient for them.

Depending on your hooping experience and goals, we will make the best use of our time together to make sure you learn or perfect the skills most important to you, or just get you feeling comfortable with the hoop so you can start playing, having fun, and simultaneously giving yourself a killer workout!
