Happy World Hoop Day!


Today, 12/12/12, is World Hoop Day. Not sure what that is?

Every year on an international, easy-to-remember date World Hoop Day volunteers invite their communities to share in the vision of creating a more peaceful world through play and giving back.  Goals of World Hoop Day’s annual event are to recruit new hoopers through teaching lessons of hoop making and dance, sharing of music, food, games and laughter, and raising funds to distribute hoops to as many individuals in the world as possible.

I'm hoping to build a hooping community in my hometown, Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada. My goal is to have an event next year for World Hoop Day!

Happy Hooping!

December Dungeon Hooping

With the cold weather upon us, I'm limited to where I can hoop...the basement is now my studio.

Here's a video of me messing around. Warning...I'm not professional. I think I'm about 4 months into hoop dance. The biggest difference between last month and this month is I have started to document myself more to learn moves and such, plus I have started to use music during my practice. This has been wonderful and energizing! And holy cow, is choreography super hard!

So, I will leave the fancy dance planning to the professionals and as I said, this is just me messing around. I'll post a more serious attempt soon. Enjoy and I hope you get a laugh...I had a great time in the dungeon tonight.

Music: Queen: I'm in love with my car
My dancing really doesn't do the song justice...please don't sue me Queen or Roger Taylor.

It's raw, emotional, creative and cute all at the same time. Enjoy!
