Niamh Kane has started two hula hoop dance classes for adults in Tallaght every Wednesday and Thursday evening in Tymonbawn and Kilnamanagh. Niamh found her love of hula hooping when studying holistic therapies in India. She says the benefits of hoop classes are endless: “It’s a fantastic way to get fit and feel fabulous.
You learn new skills, co-ordination, improve posture, agility and flexibility, not to mention, burn up to 600 calories an hour. It’s a great social activity and a fantastic alternative to those who want a change from the pub scene or a day off at least.” Currently adult dance classes are held in Tallaght in Tymonbawn Community Centre on a Wednesday evening at 6pm-7pm and Kilnamangh Community Centre at 7.30pm-8.30pm. €10 per class, hoops are provided.
