Outside circles is such a simple move, you are just taking the hoop around the waist passing from hand to hand.
Despite being simple it's also very useful,
it plays an essential role in the step ins/outs which we'll see later in this chapter.
It's also a transition move and we'll explore that a little on this page.
Here you can see outside circles running
We need to look at how to get there, how to do it, and how to get out again.
|I'm starting with the back pass
The hand exchange is different though.
Normally hand one brings the hoop palm upward and hand two takes it palm upward.
This time hand two must take the hoop palm downward.
Here you can see difference between the normal back pass
and the exchange we do now.
|Take the hoop with palm facing downward.
Swing the hoop around keeping your hand close to your body at waist height.
|Pass the hoop at the front with both palms facing downward.
|Arm one carries the hoop around for another back pass.
|For this back pass, both palms are facing downward.
This can feel like a strain at first but soon becomes easy.
Here you can see the hand position for this back pass.
You can continue with outside circles
or next time you get to the backpass...
|You can change the exchange again to go back up to overhead hand circles.
When repeating the same move, palm postions are the same.
When going from one move to another, the palms face in opposite directions.
