So it just occurred to me that we haven't had a thread on "Hoop Crushes" yet. You know what I mean. ; )
Who was your first Hoop Crush?
Who is your current Hoop Crush?
If you could put together a "Dream Team" who would they be? (2-4 hoopers)
My first hoop crush was definitely Anah A.K.A. Hoopalicious.
Now mine would be Rich Porter of Isopop. I was pretty keen on him after seeing this video but he really had me when he passed out diagrams at the Northwest Hoop Gathering. I like structure; what can I say, the guy's an architect and has a sweet technical way of thinking about the hoop.
Dream Team? hmmm... This ones a tough one for me. Maybe Brecken, SphongleHoops and Spiral all mashed together. That would be insane!
My very first hoopcrush was you Safire.
Now it is definitely Brecken and Anah as well and for
the dream team I would get Safire, Brecken, Anah and Caroleeena altogether!!
You are all so inspiring to me!!!
by the way I discovered this video off recken and Rich today
I am very new to the hooping world, so my knowledge is very limited, both in hoopers names, and in tricks, skills and what's required to perform them, so please take my crushes comments for what they are. They are just based on my sense of style, aesthetics and a few intangibles I couldn't really talk about.
- Who was your first Hoop Crush? SaFire, of course. I saw her video and I fell instantly in love for the hoop. And here I am!
- Who is your current Hoop Crush? Elaine Hoop Nymph*, Suzikens and Molly M. They just do it right to me, regardless the skill level. I see them hooping and I got heart-shaped eyes. I am sure their music choices help a lot!
- If you could put together a "Dream Team" who would they be? (2-4 hoopers). To me, the ones I just mentioned, aha. more seriously, and more technically, I have no idea, but Gail and Emma "Hoopingmad", plus SaFire and SharnaRose would probably blow my mind out.
I would have to say being new to the hooping world that Safire you were the closest I have to a "hoop-crush" but I agree with Virtuous Luna anyone who gives it serious effort and a skosh of passion for movement is worthy of admiring :)
My first hoop crush was HoopGirl, wow I still remember how she amazed me! I dont have one fave hooper or 2-4, cos I think everyone can be my favorite hooper. If you have pure heart and lovely smile and OWN style you are indeed my hoop crush!!!
i way crunch on anyboy with a hoop, especially fire boys. but safires video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ArKzOTCWyC8 was a gentle mindblow. I love the tender beauty of that video, and breckens video at symbiosis meant alot to me and inspired me to further find myself in the hoop. i truly am inspired by the fun and various styles of all the big names in hooping, but my true crushes are all my local hooper friends like Lindsey Love, Citrine, Amanda Cooper, Ziggy and Surka. I especially am blown away by those who have kids and full time jobs and whose money isnt made my professional hooping, but they are just as skilled and beautiful as those who make hooping their lifeswork. These woman inspire me to no end~
