First of all, I am no longer Jadeitea (well, I still am, but not here on this forum). I chose a new name instead - Hooploose, because it reminds me of the movie Footloose, and because (unbelievably) nobody has used it yet, so I hereby claim my rights to this one.
Secondly: the bloody LED hoop is done. Yesterday I finished the damn thing. :D It's not the prettiest of them all, but it glows, and therefore serves its purpose. You can see the photos in my gallery.…

I feel so thankful to have these talents which allow me to put smiles on the faces of people who have had to move into shelters due to their homes being destroyed.
Myself and a few other circo's have come together to put on shows, and do workshops/roving with people who are currently residing in shelters throughout Christchurch and it's so amazing to see these people smile even though their homes have been destroyed and they're having to live in halls with hundreds of other people, in…

On behalf on my friend/hoop mom Rebecca...I wish I could be there.

There are some things in life you never outgrow, like hula hooping! Hula Hoops are fun and bring back a favorite childhood past time. Come join Rebecca DeShon of…
Ok so the universe is finally pointing me in the right direction... It has been a major goal of mine to understand the elements of dance well enough to choreograph beautiful pieces. The "rules" are fairly universal, but there are a few tweaks for hoop/prop dance.
1) Week one-
a) Pick out a song.
i) I think the audience’s attention tends to wander after 3 minutes or so....
b) Write down any…
It's been really cold and snowing or raining here where I live and I can't get outside to hoop and practice. So, frustrating when I want to get back into my hooping lifestyle. It puts such a smile on my face and I could really use a smile. What I find most troubling with my hooping is feeling a rhythm and being able to actually dance with my hoop. I feel the partnership and I feel the equality we have and agreement but I can't seem to shake the whole concentration on making a move…

I've been cooped up at home for the last several days. On top of having a cold, which is a mild downer but only an inconvenience, I've been having major food allergy reactions. "Major" as in "wake myself up crying and scratching until I bleed" major. I'm covered in scaly, burning patches (even my eyelids are flaking--eeyuck), and my insides are, um, unhappy. I had to see the doctor earlier this week and had two days of blood draws for two different allergy panels. Until I get the results…

Nope, not a hairflip. I'm not going anywhere, muahahahaha.
Anyway. It's no secret with people from my past that I'm the girl with the chip on her shoulder. It's hard in the performance world. It's hard to make friends. And it's even harder to accept that not everyone is going to like or get along with you...much less even glance in your general direction.
About 6 years ago my whole world went down in flames. My then husband was sent to iraq, I lost friends, I…

Admit it, you’re stuck. There's at least one move you’ve been having some serious trouble with. Here are 10 ways to nail that new move.
1. Break it downEvery move in prop manipulation can be broken down into a series of simpler moves. For example, if you’re working on a trick that requires movements with both hands, try one hand at a time until the movements feel ingrained in muscle memory. Then try bringing the two halves together.
2. Watch a tutorialSince the…
Life is how I make it. For once I am thinking of myself and not everyone else. I have changed my work ethics and taken my schooling to a new level. Finally I am doing well in math, its only taken me 4 years to understand it. Sheeshh, but anyways The sun is shining its a wonderful 30 degrees in Buffalo, its beautiful outside.
phish released their beginning of summer tour and I have picked 3 shows off the list. Ahh Love me some Phunky Phish. I'm still waiting on Bisco to…

Same old me, only a little bit happier haha :) I was Blasphemous Bettie but that sounded kinda angry and negative to me and I'm not really like that.
I made yet another group, just waiting for it to be approved. I was surprised that there wasn't a "Crafty Hoopers" group already on here, but now there will be! Will be nice to see what everyone here makes and sells. I'm a sucker for supporting the arts, especially when it comes to jewelry and bellydance…
