Place the hoop:
Place the hoop around your child perfectly. Ask your kid to push it towards the lower back and grip it. At this point, both hands should be in complete grip of the hoop. In addition, the hands should be extended forward, as if to hug someone.
Begin the hula:
In order to start, you must thrust the hoop to either the right or the left side. Once the hoop gains movement, the body should also follow the movement of the hoop. Ask your child to thrust the hoop in either direction and then bring slight movement in the hips. Moving the hips in the same direction will help your child in commencing the dance.
The first few attempts are likely to fail. Don't lose hope and keep telling your kid to gyrate his/her hips. This will allow the hoop to rotate around the waist and lower back.
