How to Do a Hula Hoop Foot Pass

Learn how to do a hula hoop foot pass from hula hooping expert Natalie "McFancy" Wise in this Howcast video.


To do a foot pass or a scorpion, you're going to begin by passing the hoop around your body. So I have my hoop in the horizontal plane in front of me, both hands grabbing, and I rotate around, palm down to pass off, and continue. So I've got this, pass, going around the body to start.

When I have the hoop in my right hand, I'm going to put my left foot out and place the hoop onto my foot, like so. It's important to keep your foot flexed so that the hoop doesn't fly off of your leg. The motion of my leg is going to go like this. I'm going to do it facing the side so you can see all the way around to the back. I catch the hoop on my foot in front, I'm going to keep my toe facing up and then quickly rotate so that my heel is inside the hoop and the hoop is around my ankle. And then I'm going to reach back, grab the hoop and bring it around in front.

So from the side, passing, foot, around, grab. That was slow. Let's do it a little faster. So that's a foot pass or a scorpion. If you want to make it really fancy, you can bring the leg up really high and make it really dramatic as you catch the hoop. I'm not going to do that today. That's how you do a foot pass.
