"I also understand and is sad! I'm just wondering if I should stop posting weekly threads now or later...only because Loop is on vacation and we haven't decided how to stay connected to folks from daily practice. Any guidance?"

"Hey Safire, Congratulations on the transition to a new site!  I wondered if we had paid for the classes in the past and teacher training will that still be available on the new site to those who did participate?  If so can you let us know…"

I gets tons of e-mail on a daily basis so please search the forums and groups to find answers to your questions before sending me a message. There is information about hoops and hooping available through out Hoop City and this community was created to help hoopers connect and share that knowledge.

When did you start hooping? I started spinning poi and hoop in 2006.

What kind of hoops do you use? I've had a lot of different kind of hoops over the years. Right now I am enjoying 3/4 inch polypro tubing for my practice hoops. I use psi hoops for my LED hoops, they have 1 Circuit, 33 inches in diameter, have 7/8" HDPE tubing, with AAA Batteries and sanded on the inside. My fire hoops are from Cosmic Fire Dance. They are the model with removable wicks.

How old are you? I was born on October, 26th, 1983.

How much do you practice? I used to practice 4 hours a day (about an hour each session) now I practice randomly in 5 minute increments or for 4 hours at a time at festivals and retreats.

What size is your favorite hoop? Right now I'm playing with 33" and 34" hoops and using 20" minis.

How did you learn to hoop dance? I am self-taught and have only recently had the opportunity learn from others since starting to teach at hoop retreats.

What advice would you give to beginner hoopers? Keep at it and keep smiling. Also check out my Love the Process video for more general hooping tips.

For more information also check out my performance website.

Safire, I wanted to say thankyou!  I have been trying to chest hoop for about 3 months with no success and I  watched your youtube series last night and it finally clicked.  You are an awesome teacher, it's definitely a gift.

I'm so curious about the multihoopingclass, but unfortunately I only get an invitation for the planting seeds...
It's also well but not the same, I hope I can get the multihoopingclass before next week, I was waiting eagerly the whole last week and now I'm impatient for starting new things in multihooping :)
I hope you'll read this comment soon ;)
