Would you call yourself a beginner, intermediate or advanced hooper?
At this point I'd say I'm intermediate/advanced. I can do a ton of tricks but I still have a lot I want to improve on!

How often do you hoop?
A couple days a week. I don't have an indoor space anymore so it's all got to be outside when it's nice out, and sometimes I'm too cranky to move.

Do you have an indoor hoop space?
My bedroom if I don't want to do anything besides my waist! LAME!

Is there a hoop group where you live?
Kind of, Philadelphia has a huge hooping scene but it isn't really a group.

Did you start it?

Of course I am.

Nope, but maybe some day.

not really obsessed with any one in particular at the moment

Do you buy hoops or make your own?
I bought my first one but now I make them.

Have you lost weight since starting to hoop?
Yeah but I think it was more because I was too poor to buy food!

What size is your favorite hoop?
1/2" tubing, 36" diameter

Are you comfortable hooping by yourself in a public place? Alone?
Yeah sure, whatever.

How did you learn the majority of the tricks you know today?

Hooping on one leg.

How many hoopers would you say live in your town/city?
30! lol

Have you performed hooping in front of an audience?
Just friends or random strangers but not like a show or anything.

Has anyone told you you were too old to be playing with a hula hoop?

Aw thanks for asking! Actually the hoop has been great. Currently it's the heaviest one that i own. So it's giving me a chance to play around with different sizes and weights. I was at the last hoop jam but I can't make this one unfortunately. But I will be at the one after that because I'm done school. Maybe I'll see you there?

Hey girl... Have you been to any of the Philly hoop group meet ups? I've been to a few of the Lehigh Valley hoop club events... It's an amazing bunch. You should come by some time.

Hey sorry I just commented on your discussion about simple tricks to make your dance snazzy. But I didnt give any advice for exactly that lol. I think that its good to just practice moving with your hoop like this girl does. She makes it look like there are fancy tricks going on but whats fancy is her dancing! Once you learn how to move like your not hooping (while your keeping the hoop up) you become free to shake it hehe :) So maybe try just simple walking spinning grapevine steps running all kinds of on the body moves with the hoop at different levels (waist knees chest). Also try simple passing while your spinning and see what feels good! hope this helps <3

hey liz!!! in your thread you had mentioned you live in philly but felt disconnected to the hoopers there so far. youre right about philly having abundant spinners! i'll be in philly this weekend for the pex halloween ball. youre super lucky to live in a city with so much hooportunity! they're are some really incredible hoopers, don't be shy, just do what you love, and you'll find yourself among others who love it too! or i'd say take a class? some of those awesome philly hoopers teach, and thats a really great way to meet more hoopers (as well as learn some more tricks!)
what kind of music are you into? youll prolly have better luck bonding with hoopers who rock out to the same genre. i imagine at any music event where theres space in philly there's bound to be a few hoopers!
