  • Hoopy Day!

    Date: 2010.10.23 | Category: Exploring The Path | Response: 0

    I recently met up with a few hoopers and our brains began to meld into one swirling, creative, intense idea machine.  Hoop troupe, hooping personas, costumes, routines, performances, a hooping/spinning collective in PDX…it just kept going!!!

    I’ve been scouring my brain for ideas on where to have a weekly spin jam for next to nothing, where I can teach my winter classes, how to tap into my creative energy and keep the joy of hooping in tact.

    Tapping into potential fire performance training too…it’s a bit twirly right now but it’s such a cool feeling.

    Rain Hoops

    Rain Hoops

    As a Pacific Northwestern Hooper, I’ve developed an all-weather hoop for all-weather hooping!  I test drove these beauties while playing in the rain during a Sunday Parkways event.  It was cold, wet and muddy and when I got home with my hoops, I simply wiped them off – no damage done!

  • We’ve Got Spirit! Yes We Do!

    Date: 2010.10.21 | Category: HulaHoopla, The Hoops - Of Course | Response: 0

    And I have the hoops to take you to the next level of fandom (thanks to Jessie for that awesome word!). My husband’s enthusiasm for college sports sparked the idea for creating school color themed hoops for tailgating, rallies, events and flat out fun. Work off the BBQ & beer during those tailgater parties! I’ll even make special deals on party packs (5 or more hoops) and weatherproofing for outdoor events. Woo hoo(p)!
