So obviously each crowd/audience is different, but so far in my little experience it seems that hard tricks are not always as impressive to those watching as they are to other hoopers. Case in point, my fiancee's favorite thing that I can do with a hoop is the vortex, a fairly simple trick. A lot of other "gawkers"(hehe) have commented on that one as well.
In your experience, what "simple" trick gets the best response from an audience?
One legged hooping andddd where you bend over and spin it over your back. I have no idea what that is called
When I went to my first big hoop jam I was in absolute awe of Philo Hagen doing the vortex. At that time I could barely keep it on my waist. I couldn't believe that anyone could do that. It is definitely an exciting move to watch when you don't understand how it works.
People always want to see how many hoops you can do at once too.
Thanks for the suggestion. I was also in awe of the vortex until I learned it.
Kick start and then working the hoop all the way up your body without your hands always seems to get people! And shoulder hooping!
There's another thread with some great suggestions here =) I stand by what i said previously - isolations, one shoulder hooping, and flamingo (one legged hooping), but would add escalator
Thanks for your suggestions and the link to the previous thread...I'd love to learn the escalator.
You're welcome! There are a few tutorials out there for the escalator, but unfortunately my favorite one has been "removed by the user" =( Babz has a pretty good one here:
isolations trip people out XD
