HoopCity Questionary

When did you first start hooping? Very first was back in elementary school. Though I stopped until recently.

How often do you hoop? Not enough >.>

How many hoops do you own? Only 1 right now, but I imagine there will be many more in the future.

Do you have an indoor hoop space? At my house I have an in-closed porch and I'm going to see if my bf's apartment has enough space.

Where is your favorite place to hoop? Front-yard when it's starting to get dark out. Though I would like an indoor place for when the bugs start to buzz around.

Is there a hoop group where you live? There are people I know of, though I don't know if they meet-up or not.

Would you say that you are obsessed with or addicted to hooping? Not yet, but soon... I have been scoping out Lowe's for tubing and such.

Have you posted hooping videos? How many? Not yet, I don't have a camera and I don't think people would really want to see me try and kill the squirrels in my yard when the hoop goes flying.

Do you have friends nearby to hoop with? Not yet, but I'm hoping to drag 2 friends into it.

Do you teach hooping? Nope, but I hope to get good enough to give advice soon.

What kind of songs do you listen to while hooping? Anything with a good beat.

What is your favorite song to hoop to right now? Don't currently have one.

Have you lost weight since starting to hoop? Not yet, but I hope so soon.

Are you comfortable hooping by yourself in a public place? Does hooping in the front yard set back from a busy road count?

Who has been the most inspirational hooper(s) to you? SaFire is the only one to really stand out so far.

Have you inspired anyone else to start hooping? I hope to get 2 of my friends into hooping.

What advice would you give to to beginner hoopers? It gets easier over time.

Have you damaged or broken anything from hooping? Not yet, but I will be worried about the TV if I try my BF's apartment.

Do you fire hoop? If not, do you want to? Nope, I want to, but I'm afraid I'd set myself on fire.

Do own an LED hoop? Where did you get it? I would love to own one! I am pretty sure I will end-up making a glow-stick hoop though.

How much time do you spend on safiredance.ning? Too much I'm sure XD

What was the first trick you learned (besides waist hooping)? Turning in circles as I hoop.

What is the last trick you mastered? Nothing of much note yet.

What is your favorite trick? I really like the barrel roll!

What trick would you like to master next? Either the barrel roll, or hooping in the other direction, or knee hooping.

Have you performed hooping in front of an audience? Not yet, I'm too shy.

Has anyone told you you were too old to be playing with a hula hoop? Nope, but I did get some odd looks from my dad and bf when I said I was getting a hula hoop.

What’s the worst injury you’ve acquired from the hoop? Nothing much, I bruised my knee a little.

Have you ever hooped naked? Not yet ^.~

Where is the farthest you've traveled with your hoop? Only a 20 min drive so far.

Have you been to a hoop camp/retreat? No, but they do sound like lots of fun!

So I have found that my hoop is a lot easier to work with now that it has been taped. I still can't get all the things I was hoping would magically become easy, but what fun would it be if they had?

I had gotten neck hooping and waist hooping before I taped it, but those are now easier. I did manage to chest hoop without my arms for a few rotations, I wish I had a camera to capture that. I also am getting better and less awkward on half turns in both directions, though I like going with the…  

Fav trick so far

I think I perfected my first favorite trick... Hooping while eating chocolate! Haha. I was out in the front yard and my mom brought my a block of dark chocolate. Instead of just standing there while eating it, I started hooping again.

Round and round

Yay, managed to turn in both directions while hooping! I looked really awkward, but no one but the neighbor's dog was watching, so it's okay. I also go it going on my knees for a while, but that seems to have been some lucky fluke. Need to work on that...

Hey Cristina! Just checked out your etsy store - very very cute buttons! took a LOT of research, help + background experience to put up. You start with your business plan, then set up legally (LLC/accounting/seller permit) and just keep asking around for help + knowledge. I have a background in graphic design (print + web/marketing + product) + my husband is a programmer so he's very helpful. Good luck with your shop! Thanks for checking out our site. Stay in touch.
