There are so many beginner aerial hoop moves out there! It can be a bit daunting when you start going to lessons. I know when I first started hoop just getting into it seemed really hard!

Aerial silks, aerial hoop, trapeze etc can look so amazingly graceful and elegant! It can also look ridiculous and be hilarious and frustrating!
