Hooping Questionaire

Hooping Questionnaire:

- How old are you ? 37

- When did you first start hooping ? January 2009 I started trying to hoop.

- Would you call yourself a beginner, intermediate or advanced hooper ? beginner

- How often do you hoop ? Every other day

- Do you have an indoor hoop space ? sort of, the walls have a lot of colored stripes

- Is there a hoop group where you live ? yes, but it has been inactive for a while and is just starting back up

- Did you start it ? Nope

- Would you say that you are obsessed with or addicted to hooping ? yes

- Have you posted hooping videos ? How many? no video camera

- Do you have friends nearby to hoop with ? no, I drive 45 minutes on Sundays to hoop with people

- Do you teach hooping ? no, but my goal is to teach free classes to cancer survivors ala Hooping for Hope

- What kind of songs do you listen to while hooping ? i like music with Latin-based rhythms.

- What is your favorite song right now ? Bjork Postal is currently in the outdoor music system

- Do you buy hoops or make your own ? i make them, but taping is not my favorite thing

- What size is your favorite hoop ? the one that hurts the least when I hit my head with it (see hooping injury question)

- How many hoops own you ? they keep adding and subtracting, usually around five

- Have you lost weight since starting to hoop ? yes, 10 pounds and 2+ inches off my waist

- Are you comfortable hooping by yourself in a public place ? yes

- How did you learn the majority of the tricks you know today ? took a class from the wonderful ladies at HomeSpun Hoops. I wouldn't be hooping without them.

- Who is your favorite hoop teacher ? locally HomeSpun Hoops. Online Caroleeena, her youtube vids got me past some major hurdles.

- What advice would you give to to beginner hoopers ? Don't over think, just do. If you give your body time and practice, things will all the sudden just click. It has happened that way for me with every trick.

- Do you fire hoop ? No. I'm a klutz; that would be asking for trouble. I made my own "fire" hoop (it is red, orange, and yellow taped) and it suits me just fine.

- Do own an LED hoop ? not yet

- How much time do you spend on safiredance.ning ? probably more than I should

- What was the first trick you learned (besides waist hooping) ? vertical weave

- What is the last trick you mastered ? the vortex

- What trick so far was the hardest for you to learn ? knee hooping

- Which one are you finding is almost impossible to get ? shoulder hooping is driving me insane

- How many hoopers would you say live in your town/city ? a few, you'd think there would be more since the city is so into the arts

- Have you performed hooping in front of an audience ? not intentionally

- Has anyone told you you were too old to be playing with a hula hoop ? no, but I've been accused of trying to take over the world with hooping

- What’s the worst injury you’ve acquired from the hoop ? goose egg on my forehead, has happened more than once, actually

- Have you ever hooped naked ? nearly, but not completely. the girls have to have some support

- Have you been to a hoop camp/retreat ? Which one ? no, but I am dying to go, know of a good one?

-How did you get your hooping name? Whenever something disappears at work I always say that it was probably filed in the circular file (trash can.) I guess if I have a catch phrase, it would be that. I changed the f to ph to acknowledge my love of the hoop.

Hi! I got my hoop yesterday and I love it. I literally screamed with delight when I saw it. It's perfect and there is only one problem with it – it's so pretty that I think I'll be afraid to use it... Thank you!

Just had a re-listen and I'm pretty sure it's Love Here (Bassnectar Remix).  :)

By all means repost my disclaimer-free blog post. I'll have to go and have a listen to remember what song it was!  :)
