First Time at the Center of the Flame

Posted on October 27, 2010 at 10:24pm 1 Comment

The sound of flames rushing through the air is totally different when you're at the center of the flame. I was used to how noisy spinning fire is from watching friends play with poi or contact staffs, but that didn't prepare me for when I lit up my QuickWicks for the first time on burn(barrel) night at Myschievia. Utterly amazing being the one to control that rushing & whooshing.

I actually hadn't planned on burning my hoop Saturday—fire hooping for the first time was going to be…  

Happy birthday to me!

Posted on July 28, 2010 at 11:30pm 1 Comment

Just ordered a set of six Quick Wicks from hoopdrum, the 1" wick for 3/4" ID tubing, a birthday present to myself (partially from my grandma, who gave me money to "spend as I wish").

Have I ever fire hooped before? No. But with as many fire spinners as I'm now friends with--plus my little brother, who taught himself to spin & breathe fire while he was in high school--it's one of those things that is just going to happen anyway. My goal is to be in the fire procession before the…  

Officially a Circus Freak

Posted on July 22, 2010 at 10:34pm 0 Comments

I have, at the age of thirty-two, run off and joined the circus. Specifically, CM Circus! Our motto: The most popular underpaid circus troupe in DFW.

CM Circus! is the demo team for Creative Motion, a "circusy stuff" community here in Dallas. Lots of cool people. Poi spinners, contact juggling, staff, hooping... you name it, someone in the group does it. Or is willing to learn. Or does more than one thing. Marie hoops, flags, walks on stills, does all of the above at the same time…  

Hoop Dunce

Posted on June 15, 2009 at 6:00pm 0 Comments

When I went outside to hoop earlier this afternoon, I felt like such a dunce, as if I'd forgotten almost everything I'd learned about hooping above & beyond the basics. Ugh. Not a happy feeling.

I'm blaming it on the weather. Which doesn't bode well for the rest of the (Texas) summer: hot, hotter, MISERABLE! I guess I'll have to find a larger indoor space, or do some late night hooping to compensate. Hooping in my bedroom doesn't let me do much off the body tricks, due to the…  

Non-Hooping Video

Posted on March 2, 2009 at 9:01pm 2 Comments

Because the topic came up in the parking lot after tonight's South Side hoop jam, a non-hooping video of me & the 501st garrison I troop with. (I'm the one with cinnamon buns for hair, if you need a hint.)

That's my friend Wayne's R2 unit, the inspiration for my first hoop from Sassy Hoops. It's pretty. And so is my…

So you live in Dallas...we should get together and hoop it up! There is a hoop group that meets every Monday night from about 7-8pm. I'm new to hooping and I've only met up with the group once but I learned 2 or 3 new things that first night. I'll give you more details if you are interested.
