Can I still do the challenge after the raffle is over?
Absolutely! To be entered in the raffle, you will need to sumbit your entry by the deadline. However, you can still complete previous challenges to work on your personal growth as a hooper. Have fun working through the old activities and challenge yourself! We all grow at different rates and all of the challenges will be useful even years from now. If you've already done a challenge feel free to try it again in a few years, you may have a completely different experience the second time around.
The Beginning
It began on September 2010 when David posted a forum discussion called "A Hoop-Flow Challenge". He challenged us to hoop dance for the entire song of Ava Maria. Over time new challenges were added by other hoopers; like Look Ma no Hands! and Communication Revelationand then this group was born.

Comment by Krista, Ambassador of Shimmy on July 3, 2013 at 5:44pm

Is there a July 2013 challenge? I joined the June one, but it was so late in the month, I never posted/participated. I don't want to miss July...

Comment by Nikki Osier on June 3, 2013 at 10:32pm

June Challenge idea, tonight I broke out my 34" 1/2 black pe tubing hoop. Lately I've only been using my 30" polypro. So put aside the polypro for a bit! I miss this feeling of flow with a bigger hoop, It was fun!

Comment by Traci "CircularPraise" Bonney on April 17, 2013 at 8:18pm

I like your idea, Shannon. I think we get into ruts where we do the same things over and over; it would be good to challenge ourselves not to do that. It might disrupt flow, but it would give us a reason to refresh our memories on moves and combos we haven't used in a while, to learn new things, and to try our hand at choreography.

Comment by Shannon "Inertia" Sealey on April 17, 2013 at 7:11pm

I had a hoop challenge idea, how about you can only do each trick only once (sans waist/chest/thigh hooping since that is impossible to just do once)? I almost think it would have to be choreographed!  At least it would require that I delve into my hooptrick memorybank for some oldies but goodies. Any thoughts?

where is the next challenge

Comment by Traci "CircularPraise" Bonney on July 29, 2012 at 12:19pm

Interesting idea, CH. It is fun to take  a little trip back in time and remember the music of our youth. :)

Comment by Cheez Hoops on July 29, 2012 at 10:00am

Hey! I have an idea for a challenge if it hasn't been done yet.  Dance to something you would of listened to in middle or high school! You know those songs that seem so ridiculous now! Too much fun and I totally nailed the knee shimmy up by doing this! Sometimes changing it up helps!!!!
