"I'd love some sort of thing for more advanced hoopers/people who have been hooping for a while...something that was more aimed at how to keep changing things up with hooping and not necessarily on new moves/tricks. I also think an article or…"

That Didn't Work So Well...

We went on vacation all of last week to this resort in Canada.  Last year I forgot my LED hoop and was really sad, so this year I made sure I packed it.  I was so excited to be able to hoop right on the beach.  I took it out one night early in the week and started hooping.  And every bug in Canada joined me.  I could feel them bouncing off my hand and buzzing around my face.  It was gross.  So a minute after starting, I turned the hoop off and went back inside the cabin.  I had not thought…See More

Hooping for an hour=Heaven

I went outside with my hoop tonight thinking I was going to hoop for maybe 15 minutes like I have been doing the past few weeks.  I haven't been able to get back into "summer hooping" yet - the heat has been too much, or I'm just worn out after a few songs.  But tonight something made me keep going.  I didn't realize the first half hour had gone by, and then I decided to keep going.  All fast songs and lots of moving around.  It felt awesome.  Over an hour later and I feel so much better.  My…See More

Hooping Videos

Today was nice enough to go outside and hoop for 40 minutes before I was too tired to keep going.  I had so much fun.  I felt like the hoop was moving exactly how I wanted it to, a few new moves worked perfectly, and I was having such a good time with the music.  Since it was going so well, I decided to film a little of my hooping.  And everything I had just disappeared.  I watched the video, and I looked stilted.  It looked like where I was at the beginning of last year, like all the work I've…See More

Isolations

Posted on February 13, 2011 at 6:04am 0 Comments

Last night was the second performance of Seussical at our school.  I loaned a set of minis and a regular hoop to the musical for the circus scene, and right before bows all the hoops were laying out on the ground.  I grabbed one of the minis and started playing with it, trying to work on isolations.  I didn't think I had it, but all of the sudden the other 7 people out in the hall with me went "That is so cool!"  Everyone was asking me how I did that.  I was so excited that I finally got an…  

Big News!

Yesterday I heard from my top choice college and I got accepted!  I'm so excited right now.  This school has nearly everything I wanted in a school, and since its a state school it's cheaper so my parents will let me study abroad for 2 semesters instead of 1.  I got a scholarship too, so I'm super happy!  And this means that my college application essay on hooping totally worked!

And in other hooping news, my little sister just got asked to hoop in the school musical this year.  We're…
