So, I'm not a very comfortable dancer. I've never really been a good dancer, so dancing while hooping is a struggle for me.
My vow to myself is that before I hoop every day, I'm going to dance for at least 5 minutes, without the hoop. It will be a good warm-up, and hopefully get me loosened and dancing more IN the hoop.
Anyoen else have any advice for us non-dancers?
I can do it!
So I read the caption of someone's video and saw they were doing the 30/30 challenge...I can't find anything on it on here, or on the web. I'm assuming it's hooping for 30 minutes a day for 30 days straight?
I'm not sure if it is, or it isn't...but that sounds like a fun challenge either way..and I think I'm going to do it! Who's with me?
Also, I have been hoping, praying, waiting for a hoop retreat in the DC/Maryland/Virginia area OR within a reasonable distance..Now…
