Hula Hoop Making Workshop and Dance Party
Friday, June 25. Rain date: July 9.
Location: Library lawn
2pm hoop making, 3pm dance party
Hooping is so much fun, and a great way to get moving, get some exercise, and whirl away stress.
Perfect for teens and tweens to shake off the school year. Or for adults to shake a leg! We’ll be outside on the library lawn, and staff will mask when assisting young hoop makers. We’ll start at 2pm making hoops and practicing, and at 3pm we’ll turn up the music for hooping and dancing. Bring your own hoop if you have one. Ribbon wands would also be fun. Or just your dancing feet! And maybe a water bottle.
Preregister to make a hoop, or just come dance! Hoop makers under age 10 must be accompanied by an adult. Contact the library to preregister to be sure we will have enough supplies.
Pizza Garden: Planting
