What a great start for the year!

Posted on January 20, 2011 at 2:28am 3 Comments

I have been hooping for almost one year now and ever since I have been hoping that finnish hoopers would become more known in the world. We have AMAZING hoopers in this tiny country and we are getting more and more new ones all the time. Our hoop community is growing, more great events are being held. I am very excited to see where the finnish hoopdance is next year. We are definitely making our way to the map so to speak.

 

Last year (November) we had two amazing and umm.. I…

How often do you hoop?
I try to hoop at least twice a week.


Do you have an indoor hoop space?
Yes, several

Is there a hoop group where you live?
Yes

Sort of I think yeah :D

Yes. I love it and I seriously couldn't live without it anymore. ^^

Have you posted hooping videos? How many?
Umm.. a few.. x)

Do you have friends nearby to hoop with?
Yes. I started hooping with my little sister and my cousin also fell completely in love with the hoop when she tried it. Also my students are great to hoop with!

Yes

Anything I like. :)

What is your favorite song right now?

What size is your favorite hoop?
I love all my hoops <3

Are you comfortable hooping by yourself in a public place?
I haven't done it yet, but I think it'll be okay.. maybe.. possibly.. :D I think it's better to hoop in company. ^^

How did you learn the majority of the tricks you know today?
Youtube and just hooping around. :) SaFire's classes, they are the best!

Who is your favorite hoop teacher?
SaFire, Hoop-a-trix, Baxter, Brecken, Ann Humphreys, Beka Hoop.. ANYONE!

What advice would you give to to beginner hoopers?
Don't try to be something you are not. Be yourself and move like you feel is best for YOU! Also, don't take hooping too seriously, because hey, it's not serious! ;)

Do you fire hoop? If not, do you want to?
I have done it twice and it was FUN but really scary. I'm just one of those people who has to get used to it and not be afraid. :P

Yes. I got it from Trick Concepts. Luv it <3 Also my BF made me one and probaböy will make MANY. ;)

How much time do you spend on Hoop City Hooping Community?

Once :) Was fun!


Has anyone told you you were too old to be playing with a hula hoop?
Some people at work have laughed at my hoops, but they don't know anything! :D

What’s the worst injury you’ve acquired from the hoop?
Just little bruises and broken nails. :D One fat lip and one scratch on my cheek! :D

Have you ever hooped naked?
Yes, of course! ;)
