One of my favorite people. We first met at HoopCon and HoopPath. She’s a hoopdancer out Atlanta. My gypsy mermaid in a hula hoop @hoopessence. We may be nearly 2000 miles apart but we still jam together. #hulahoop #hoopfriends #tribe #hoopcon #hooppath #gahooper #hoopessence #hoopdance #hoopoclock

I make him hold my skirt when my hands are full. I got this skirt at #HoopCon last spring from a fellow mama badass hooper named Brandy. #skirt #family (Taken with Instagram)
Morganza Inspiring hooper. So glad I got to hoop w her and befriend her. Her flow is raw and graceful. Self taught, like me. She experiments w her accidents and translates that to her hooping. Anazaballs Hoop Convergence 2012

We had people all around the world to come to HoopCon. Bristol Toronto NYC Wisconsin Cali Hawaii Boston Awesome. Already excited for next year.
Just stretching out before hooping class. Ninja hooping class.
HoopCon gave me a new found respect for poi. It’s incredibly difficult; yet, easy to learn if you are committed to the art form.
What is poi?
“performance. As a performance art, poi involves swinging tethered weights through a variety of rhythmical and geometric patterns”.
Incredible to watch when there’s LED or fire involved.
I’ve made this necklace to those who practice poi. You are amazing!!
$30 plus shipping

Hooping in Expanding the Current workshop. This workshop was about recognizing the path of the hula hoop and playing w that current.
Wherever the hoop goes, u anticipate it’s destination and play. Roll on wrists. Roll on forehead. Neck. Elbows. Find control points on your body like ur forehead, palm, fingertips, etc.
