Once you're comfortable and confident hooping around your waist, you can try walking forwards and backwards with the hoop.
You can also try turning with the hoop. If you hoop to the left, start turning to the left and the hoop will move slower (if you hoop to the right, turn to the right). Turning this way will help you with later tricks (I feel like I'm constantly turning in my routines).
Then try turning in the opposite direction to the way you hoop, so if you hoop to the left turn to the right, and if you hoop to the right turn to the left. This will be a lot harder as the hoop moves faster. I rarely use this move, but it's still fun to try.
