Hooper du Cirque

Whoh. I just finished watching a spectacular hooping/contortionism act from the Alegria show of Cirque du Soleil, thanks to its recent post on hooping.org. While I am not a contortionist and not likely going to run off with the cirque anytime soon (although I do dream about it sometimes), it was truly inspiring to watch [...]

Boundless Fun

I am getting excited about spreading the magic of the hoop world to more and more folks. Yesterday I delivered 2 shiny hoops to my Aunt’s home in Burtonsville, MD. I got to watch my young cousin try out her brand new pink, orange, and purple hoop. She’s so skilled! One of the things I [...]

First Ladies

Last night I made my first two hoops since I moved back to the DC area. I grabbed one on my way out as I headed off for a night of dancing downtown. Went to the Black Cat where there was a rad group of people shaking tail feathers to the musical offerings of the [...]
