Hoop Survey

How old are you?

When did you first start hooping?
March 2009

Would you call yourself a beginner, intermediate or advanced hooper?
Intermediate/Advance..I hate answering this question though.

How often do you hoop?
.5 to 1 hour a day on average

Do you have an indoor hoop space?

Is there a hoop group where you live?
Yes, the Hudson Valley Hoopers!

Did you start it?
Yes :-)

Would you say that you are obsessed with or addicted to hooping?
That's putting it mildly...

Have you posted hooping videos? How many?
probably about 10

Do you have friends nearby to hoop with?
Yes, my friend Brittney (aka TigerLilly) and her sister Leeza, and Elma (Nasty La Freak) have gotten into hooping as well... Also Robin Marie has moved to my town recentally too

Do you teach hooping? If so, how many people have you taught?
Yes I do. I have about regular 10 students. I teach anyone who wants to learn!

What kind of songs do you listen to while hooping?
Bob Marley, Radiohead, MIA, Bon Iver, Sublime, Incubus, Santigold... anything I enjoy with a good beat.

Do you buy hoops or make your own?
Make my own

Have you lost weight since starting to hoop?
Yes, but I still have a ways to go

What size is your favorite hoop?
My fav is 1/2" 125 psi 36" diameter

Are you comfortable hooping by yourself in a public place?

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

Who is your favorite hoop teacher?
Safire and Caroleeena

What advice would you give to to beginner hoopers?
Yes, you CAN hula hoop! You're going to drop the hoop, and you're going to smack yourself in the head with it, it's unavoidable... But don't give up! Once you get a trick once, no matter how bad it looks, you know you've got the basic move down, all you need to do it fine tune it.

Do you fire hoop? If not, do you want to?
Yes, I love it!!!

Do own an LED hoop? Where did you get it?
Yes! I have a psi! It is 36" diameter made with 7/8 HDPE tubing. 20 LEDs in total.. 8 rainbow riders, 12 dragonflies. It's a work of art.

How much time do you spend on HopCity?
too much :)

What was the first trick you learned (besides waist hooping)?
Stalls and lasso

What is the last trick you mastered?
Backspin to one leg hooping!!

What trick so far was the hardest for you to learn?
Shoulder hooping was very hard for me to pick up. But I got it eventually.

Which one are you finding is almost impossible to get?
Multi-hooping on different parts of my core.  So far, I can only multi-hoop with one on my core and 1 or 2 off body hooping

How many hoopers would you say live in your town/city?
Well 3 that lives in my actual town, but there a few more in nearby towns. Most of my students are two towns over.

Have you performed hooping in front of an audience?

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

What’s the worst injury you’ve acquired from the hoop?
Right shoulder pains from lifting and vortexing. Also got some killer bruises while learning to knee hoop. I knocked myself upside the head so hard once that it actually knocked out the ball from my CBR jewelry in my conch piercing.

Have you ever hooped naked?
Yes :)

Have you been to a hoop camp/retreat? Which one?
No. I would love that though

A new hoop awakening

Posted on August 19, 2010 at 12:38am 4 Comments

I have had many levels of hoop awakenings in my short 4 years since first being exposed to it.. Though I didn't actually pick up- a hoop for the first time nearly 2 years ago. When I first saw it at Bonnaroo of 07, I was so intrigued. I never saw the chance to try one at a vendor booth, nor did I ever see someone hooping with an extra unused hoop near by. So I was a fan. That was until one weekend my new friend Cassie invited me to a weekend up at her family's cabin. She hooped and had some…

I go to school about 15 mins south of Philly. But my parents live in Orange Country NY. So I'm here in NY for a few weeks. I miss my friends, independence, and bf a lot... But I get one major plus... Indoor hoop space!!! Since it's the winter and super cold outside, I've been like a prisoner inside. My apt does not have the space to hoop. But my parent's house has a great family room with high ceilings and a big mirror as well so I can see how I'm doing. Oh, and there's dec sound system for…  

I took the LED plunge!

Posted on July 12, 2009 at 9:47am 3 Comments

I finally bought my first LED hoop! Words can't describe how excited I am, although I'm sure you guys understand. My bf almost died when I told him the price. So many people think it's insane to spend that money on a hula hoop. But as he (my bf) said to me 'You'll never understand the wine, I'll never understand the hoops" My man is a big wine fan and has no qualms about spending $280 on a single bottle of wine.

Anyways, I figured I was going to spend at least $200 on a heady hoop...…  

Bonnaroo 2009!!!

Posted on June 16, 2009 at 12:12pm 8 Comments

Bonnaroo was amazing, as always. I hooped my face off every day of it. Especially during Mars volta, andrew bird, Erykah Badu, Al Green, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, animal collective, bon iver, and santigold. I brought two of my hoops with me... My biggest one (brown and blue, 46 inch diameter) and my smallest one (green, yellow, and metallic gold, 36 inches) I saw some great bands and great hoopers too. I was even filmed while hooping by some woman with a very professional looking camera, haha. I forgot…

Good day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very important to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site. Could you please get back to me on my private email( for the full details?
Have a nice day and God bless you,
