Who Can Attend?

Who Can Attend?

Do you have to be from Michigan to attend MHDR?

You do not have to be from Michigan to attend MHDR. Most of us are from Michigan, but flow artists from all over the Midwest join us for the weekend.

Do I have to be really good at hooping to attend?

For your own enjoyment, it is recommended that you can already waist hoop and/or know a handful of off-body hoop tricks. You should have a good grasp (literally and figuratively) on your hoop, but you don’t have to be “advanced”…whatever that means.

I’m in high school. Can I come to MHDR?

Sorry. This is an 18 & older event. Due to insurance and liability issues, this retreat is limited to attendants who are 18 years of age and older.

Can my kids come to MHDR?

No children or anyone under age is allowed at the event. MHDR is strictly 18 yrs +.

Can my pet come?

Pets are not allowed at this event. Please leave your nonhuman friends at home, with a sitter, or at a kennel for the weekend.

**You must have a ticket to enter the event. If you do not have a ticket, you will not be allowed in.

Where is the retreat?

Sunset Place Campground
676 W. Dansville Rd.

You do not have to stay at the campground to attend the retreat. You are welcome to come and go as you please. However, if you leave after 10 pm, re-admittance is not allowed until 8 am the following day.

When is the retreat?

August 9-11, 2019

MHDR 2019 starts on Friday August 9. You are welcome to arrive any time after 12 pm. Early entry will not be allowed. Most attendees arrive on Friday and stay the entire weekend. We will wrap up on Sunday August 11 by 3 pm.

What is included in the retreat?

Camping, all-day workshops Saturday and Sunday, wisdom talks, the community potluck breakfast, the LED jam and fire circle. But more than anything, you’ll find your people at the Michigan Hoop Dance Retreat.

You will experience friendships and connections you’ve never had before. MHDR is about so much more than hooping. It’s about feeling like you belong. Like finally, you’ve found the people who get you.

What do I need to bring?

You need to bring camping and sleeping gear, and food for the weekend. There is limited electricity to charge phones. Please plan food accordingly as there will not be a place to plug in cooking equipment. We will have a community campfire available for cooking.

Don’t forget. Bug spray, sunscreen, lawn chairs, a camp/ground blanket, flashlights, and hoops!
