Hey beginner hoopers and hoopers-to-be: getchur hoop on this holiday season and new year! I am currently lining up my next six-week series of adult classes for January. Classes will either be a late-morning weekend time, or an early-evening weekday time. Feel free to email me at email@example.com with your preference, as I will take all feedback into consideration before finalizing the dates. Also, I hope to hold a hoop-making workshop around the 2nd week of December, just in time for handmade holiday gift hoops! Giving the gift of a hoola hoop is one of the most positive, peaceful, healthful and fun gifts around, and crafting it yourself makes it that much more special. Please email me if you are interested in the hoop-making workshop, and I will get back to you with further details~

Join us at the Palace of Wonders a week from tonight for San Fran’s fabulous songbird slash ukulele-slinger Tippy Canoe to kick off her east coast tour. I, Strange Powers, will be hooping it up whilst throwing down all kinds of delectable dance moves, along with the varied talents of Sarah Azzara, Kitty Victorian, and the mistress of ceremonies, Citizen Rahne. The show starts at 9. Tickets are $8. The Palace is located at 1210 H. Street NE, Washington DC. Warm up your work week with us darlings!
As part of Performa ‘07, New York’s 20-day biennial of performance art, here’s a shot of 2 out of 20-something synchronized hoopers spinning it up for an hour on Chinatown rooftops. It reminds me of how revolutionary and exciting it felt to me as a kid watching the U2 video where they’re playing a free concert on the roof of a building. Take to the sky with your hoops! And grow a rooftop garden while your at it!
