YES! I do it all the time when I hear a new song and don't have a hoop with me to try the moves :D Can't really give you any feedback on it because it's just fun for me, but it seems very plausible that it developes your ability to plan ahead during dancing.
Guilty! I noticed myself doing this while making breakfast the other week. I had Pandora on listening to a Jason Mraz station. I just started air hooping to a song that I really liked. Oddly enough, I felt more "in flow" without the hoop than when I tried hooping to the song later that day! I couldn't remember the rhythm or the moves that I was playing with and it didn't seem to flow as well. *sigh* I felt like a complete dork.
I love this video~
I absolutely LOVE this video. You know you're a hooper when you know EXACTLY what she's doing without the hoop being there.
Love this so much!!! My housemates are gonna get an eyefull when I try this lol!!!
So glad you posted this. When I was in Europe without a hoop for three weeks I found myself doing this all the time or swinging certain things in the motion that my hoop would spin around me. It was pretty hilarious, fun and does help you get the motion down if your trying to do something new.
Yes, It's called "The Time Warp".... :)
Haha! Like your name...
yes yes yes yes yes! Its how i boooogie on the dance floor sometimes! I'm learning the barrel roll and i've been practicing the motion without the hoop, its very helpful :)
