I'm bringing in my hoop's 1 month (or shall I say my 1 month hoop-anniversary) the way it should be--with a great friend having an awesome hoop session. Who cares that it is 5 in the a.m.? Not us. haha. Good times, good times :)
As my 1st journal entry, I wanted to point out the beauty of making mistakes while hooping. Although it can be frustrating, it's one of the many things I love about hooping. I usually get frustrated really easy when I can't get…

I am thinking about attending Hoop Camp 2013. I think this will be the only year I can swing it financially, but I am concerned that it won't be worth the expense. I can't drive that far (to Cali from MN) alone and so the plane tickets would add to the camp ticket amount. Anyone who has attended or is thinking about attending or not, would you please help and give me some advice or reasoning as to why you are or are not going?
I wasn't going to use this hoop journal, as I thought it was cheesy, but after watching today's recordings of myself, I just HAD to.
I've only recorded myself one other time, and it was maybe three weeks after starting hooping. [Significant Other's Name Redacted] filmed it for me, and I felt really awkward having him watch me and I kept thinking how stupid I looked.
Yesterday I had an AWESOME morning hooping before work, so I thought why not try it again today?…

Sparkly patterns and polka dotted tracers are constantly invading my mind space. My 36" luna hoop just isn't doing it for me anymore. I have a serious case of smart hoop envy. I've been trying to hold off as long as I possibly can, especially since I'm not even nearing my one year hoopiversary, AND the high probability that I will really start to enjoy hooping a 34" vs a 36". I've also grown to really like the polypro that I was so quick to dismiss. The HDPE hoop feels like it's filled…

I have recently been blogging about the art of making dances. It's something I've been studying for the last couple of years. I have quite a few blog posts that might help other hoopers put together sensational dancers. Here are some links:

That's all folks! Day 30 of my trick-a-day hoop challenge complete! This move is unnamed as far as I know...so I called it the double behind the back pass. Thanks to everyone who watched & commented and stay tuned for more as I plan on making a choreographed hoopdance including my new moves. It's been a blast. :3 *bows*
Here's my video!

Here's today's new trick! I heard this move being called 'duck in & pop on' but that's too long, so I shortned it slightly- anyone else know another name for this one? It's groovy! But ow my head hurts from getting smacked so many times learning it. XD

Found this pretty little move looking for a different vertical behind the back move so I learned this one instead!
This is a sweet move and super fun! I want to learn to toss it up even higher! ^___^
Here's my video!

Couldn't find the tutorial for this one again but I think that's what this move is called- I love it! Especially since I can move around easily.
(sorry I forgot to post this earlier!)

Some people make this look so smooth- I find it pretty tough! I should probably reshoot this with a regular hoop because it looks so choppy with an LED light because you can tell it's not spinning when you step through and that it's just being held. I would need more light though! It was so dark and overcast today, I originally shot this with a regular hoop but switched to the led because you couldn't even see the hoop otherwise. XD
Here's the vid! :)…
This is one badass trick.
Check out my vide-yo!

I saw my super hooper friend do this move a few months back and determined to learn it- it was so simple! XD I feel like a dummy not knowing it so long when it was so easy but so glad I have added this to my list of hooping moves.
