Hoopnotica Hoopdance Beginning Level 1 details the following hoopdancing maneuvers: waist hooping, hip hooping, halos, passing and floating, and corkscrews. The DVD begins with a general introduction that defines the overall goal of the first level and a warm-up using the hoop as a tool to help stretch the body before attempting to dance. One of my only complaints about this program is the lack of a dance sequence as a finale that the student can watch and copy that incorporates all the learned moves. Some fun music and a beginner's routine would have capped off this DVD and launched it into a 5 star rating.
For those who are new to hoop dancing: make sure your hoop is an adult sized hoop made specifically for dancing. I own two different hoops from two different companies: the Hoopnotica Fitness Travel Hoop Combo fits the bill nicely as it comes apart and can be easily transported.Read more ›
These two videos together, Beginning Level 1 and Beginning Level 2, provide an excellent introduction to hooping.
Though some find it too slow paced or suggest skipping it and going straight to Beginning Level 2 if you are not a "true beginner", I think that this DVD contains enough helpful tips that many who are not brand new to hooping may still find something they did not know and, contrary to what another reviewer stated, material introduced in Level 1 is not duplicated in Level 2 which introduces very different material.
If you are looking for a follow along work-out with an in-real-time routine, that is not what this DVD is about.
Also, be aware that Hoopnotica has put out the same or similar material at different points under slightly different names and, as of August 2011, many are still available through amazon.com; some say Beginning Level, some say Beginner Level and some say Workout but they are all different editions of the same instructional material with minimal variation ... or so say the Hoopnotica staff I spoke to when, confused, I called to clarify.
I think it is excellent and recommend it to anyone who is looking to have technique and moves explained and demonstrated. It does this very well - no more, no less.

Terrible video. No real workout just a very slow boring tutorial of the moves. Not even easy to understand the moves. I expected a workout not just a lesson. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
