We are excited to have Babz Robinzon back and she is literally getting down in her brand new tutorial that involves rolling around on the ground “like a pig” and a fancy foot pass. In fact, she’s calling the move the “Rolling Around on the Ground Like a Pig Pass” and we love it and you will too. Floor hooping meets foot hooping for a foot pass she describes as “So pretty!” Babz lives in Canmore, Alberta, Canada, and her soundtrack used here is “Dolce Vita” by Bebo Best and The Super Lounge Orchestra, which can be purchased for your own collection on iTunes.

It’s been too long since we’ve had a tutorial to share from Babz Robinson, but YAY! The wait is over! She spins up some slow motion instruction for a sweet ass combo she created that she’s calling “The Canuck Combo”. For those that may not know, Canuck is a slang term for Canadian, and this combo has it all – tosses, isolations, jump throughs, arm rolls and knee reversals! She lives in Canmore, Alberta, Canada, and the soundtrack for this is “Blue Monday” by Plastik Funk & Kurd Maverick and you can snag it for your very own on iTunes.
