App Description

"Learn to Hoop" is an app that will take you from the very basics to a high level of hooping with clear, easy-to-follow instructions with video and text.

For over 15 years, Peachysteve has been teaching people juggling, object swinging and manipulation, and in that time has developed techniques to help people to easily understand how to go about learning new skills. "Learn to Hoop" will have you spinning your hoop in minutes, and addicted in just a few more.

Each move is shown from multiple angles. Slow motion sequences help to make things even clearer and there are step by step instructions for each move.

Subtitles show the instructions during the videos, and more detailed instructions are included separately for you to read at your leisure.

All videos are fully integrated into the app, so you can view them any time without the need for an internet connection.
