My first accidental hoop performance for a large crowd of people I did not know happened over the weekend. My towns hometown fest was friday thru tuesday & I brought my LED and hooped for myself because there was a live band. I like being able to be outdoors and explore new hooping methods & what not, add live music & its even better. So I was hooping doing my thing out of the way towards the back of the crowd on the first night & by the last night I had moved more towards the stage & felt much more confident in myself. Anyhoo after having almost all positive feedback from friends & people I didn't know my confidence in myself with hoopdance has shot through the roof & its a great feeling. I loved having little girls try my hoop & seeing their happy faces as well as having older women try it. Just the positive energy surrounding hoopdance & how it brings people together is amazing.
