When did you first start hooping? Winter 2009
Would you call yourself a beginner, intermediate or advanced hooper? Beginner
How often do you hoop? Everyday and in my dreams!
Do you have an indoor hoop space? yep, my livingroom and my boyfriends personal training studio
Would you say that you are obsessed with or addicted to hooping? Both, for sure
Have you posted hooping videos? How many? Not yet but it's on my list of goals
Do you have friends nearby to hoop with? The girls in my class each week, but nobody I can call up on the phone...looking to change that though
Do you teach hooping? If so, how many people have you taught? No, I think it would be cool though
What kind of songs do you listen to while hooping? Love dubstep and anything with plenty of bass but I'll hoop to random songs just to see how I respond to it as I'm developing my dance style
Do you buy hoops or make your own? Bought one, made two and want to buy and make more already!
Have you lost weight since starting to hoop? Not sure, I was pretty active already but it's certainly added hours and hours of cardio to my normal routine
What size is your favorite hoop? it stands 3 or 4 inches below my belly button and it's fairly light. I have a larger one I love too but it's a little too slow for some of the music I like
Are you comfortable hooping by yourself in a public place? not yet but trying to build up the courage, I'm dying to and it's a goal this month!
How did you learn the majority of the tricks you know today? online and a local class where I can get critiqued and one on one help when I'm lost
Who is your favorite hoop teacher? Andi Epstein...she's fun and enthusiastic and I get to see her in real life :)
What advice would you give to to beginner hoopers? don't judge yourself and have fun!
Do you fire hoop? If not, do you want to? No but I'm VERY open to the idea someday
Do own an LED hoop? Where did you get it? Not yet, on the list though!
How many hoopers would you say live in your town/city? Not sure, I've met about 10 so far but I'm new to the community so there could be more
Have you performed hooping in front of an audience? No but think it would be awesome
Has anyone told you you were too old to be playing with a hula hoop? Ha! I'm a dollmaker...nobody I know is surprised :)
Have you ever hooped naked? Totally, there's stuff I can only do with exposed skin, now I just have to transfer those skills to clothes so I can go to the park!
Have you been to a hoop camp/retreat? Which one? No but I'm keeping my eye out because I'd love it
