I set an intention this year to become more active in my local hooping community by starting to attend open flow practices and workshops. There is a lovely, welcoming group called the Detroit Fire Collective that holds workshops, safety training, and weekly open flow practice. Open flow practice is held every Monday from 7:30PM-11PM at an amazing space called the Tangent Gallery in Detroit, MI. Workshops are also held here. I plan on attending these practices at least bi-weekly. If you're in the area and would like to join please do!! Fire spinning is permitted and fuel is provided. Admission is $5. If you are having trouble coming up with money they will work with you. You can check out their sites below.
"Detroit Fire Collective Flow Jam is a place where individuals of any skill level come together to share the knowledge and culture of fire spinning and circus play."
If you need a lender flow toy or transportation to practices/workshops I am more than happy to help. I live just off 8 mile near Woodward. You can message me on here or add me in IG @tttweed to communicate. I don't have Facebook or any other social media.
