I have been asked to do a paid demo at a birthday party in two weeks. (OMG SO EXCITED!) The theme is Swamp People, which is kind of cool.  I want to make sure I cover all of my bases on this and do…

Okay, so has anyone gotten flames that licked up their nose?  I am not joking....It happened to me twice today with a hoop I use regularly. The first time I was just hooping at the chest; nothing… 

Disoriented when Spinning Fire

When I spin fire, which is usually at a drum circle we hold on the beach at night, I have a tendency to get really disoriented when doing barrel rolls or other similar moves; pretty much anything…

Plastic perfection. Circular positivity.

 

 

 

My name is Kayla Dixon  aka 'Dixie' and I discovered hooping while taking a pole dancing class.  Weird.  I know.  That was October 2nd, 2010. :) I am 30 and am in school for Kinesology.


I've had lots of challenges; mental, physical, emotional.  I've gone from being the type of person everyone wanted me to be to being who I wanted to be. I find peace in my plastic circle; escape, joy, calm.  I wish I had discovered it sooner.

 

I used to take static trapeze class but had to discontinue due to money.

 :*(  I loved it and would love to start doing it again, but I don't see that happening in the future unless I have my own rig.

Burning Flipside 2011- Bad Idea (With photos) :)

Posted on June 3, 2011 at 8:17pm 2 Comments

My first burn ever!!! I didn't know what to expect; I knew of course there would be tons of hoopers, tons of fire performers, and tons of really nice awesome people.  Flipside surpassed anything I had ever imagined.

 

We got there early on Thursday morning...I'm kind of punctual like that, lol.  We got a good spot camping, but after we were all set up we were told to move.  We were both a bit angry, but were able to find a better spot across the…

 

Drum Circle-Second Degree Fire Burn

Posted on March 20, 2011 at 6:30pm 2 Comments

The drum circle last night was amazing! I expected the normal amount of people to be there (20-30) but that had to of been 60 or more there!  Lots of spring breakers had camped out in their rvs alongside the beach and they came out to see what the fuss was about. 

All of the people made me very nervous.  I didn't want to even fire hoop at all when I saw how many people were out there.  So for awhile I played with my regular hoops. Finally I got the courage up (with some egging on by…

Totally understand if you can't make it, but I hope you do.  I've been encouraging Khaanee to come even if she's not ready to hoop much yet, and I know she'd love to see you again.

The girl from the drum circle didn't show, but we had two families - four adults and five kids - plus my niece Kayla.  One of the adults was a blind man, and I even got him in a hoop for a few revolutions. :)

Lol - understand.  I may make the drum circle tomorrow night; depends on weather and my fatigue level at the end of the day.

The jam is this weekend.  I'm sorry you won't be able to come.  If the situation changes, I hope you'll swing by for a little while.
