Noooooooooooooovember!

And another Hooper of the Month post is here to share!


I have been watching this particular person for some time now via Instagram and their feed provides a lovely window into a wonderful world of wobbly, wiggly, hoop tech! (WOAH! SO MANY W'S!) You will also catch them playing with a few other flow props such as buugeng and poi! Sometimes, our featured hooper  will show off some sweet dance moves paired with a pretty technical style. This is really refreshing to see because pairing complicated hoop moves while independently moving other parts of your body so nicely, is not that common. If you want kiiiiiiind of an idea of what I am talking about, try rubbing your belly, patting your head, and then, dancing......

My favourite month is here! OCTOBER-WEEN! I mean, October...

By the October rolls around, I feel like most people are ready for changes or they are in the process of making changes. I am personally working on HooperSonic and personal health-related changes. I'll keep you posted in the coming months as to what those things are. ;)  

People are also ready for jamming indoors, warm drinks, sweaters, giants scarves, and boots! (But NOT the parkas, yet, thank you very much!) 

However, the best part of October may seem obvious: Halloween

My house is fully awash in creepiness... (Inside and out)

Costumes are being crafted with care...

My son and I are making spooky snacks...

What more is there to life?! 

This month, we are a bit...

Hey there!

It's the big moment.... It's time to reveal this month's feature hooper! YAAAAAAY!

I have been waiting to ask this person for quite some time and it's been killing me to wait. Truthfully, I get antsy every month before I ask the next person because I have so many amazing hoopers to share with you, (and I keep meeting more) but I can only pick ONE per month... That is only TWELVE hoopers per YEAR! It's hard to pick! Hmmmm, perhaps I should have done Hooper of the Week? Actually....No way... hah

On that note, I plan to continue the HOTM blog post NEXT year but with a new set of questions or approach. I'm excited for 2019!

So, onto this particular person...

September features a very near and dear person to me once again......

Hey Y'all!

I am just back home from the New England Flow Festival and filled with inspiration! It was a wonderful festival and the company was fantastic. I am already excited for next year and if I were you, I'd definitely consider going yourself. As I was getting ready to leave for New Hampshire, I realized I hadn't sent my Hooper of the Month a message yet!! BAH!

I already had my August choice set aside, so it was just a matter of contacting her and getting her the questions.... Thankfully, she agreed to the interview right away and completed it so quickly! 

I just started following this woman on Instagram and was immediately captivated! She can DANCE! The way she uses negative space and moves in tune with her hoop is...

July has been quite the month already... We are all melting here!

Hmm... Wasn't I just writing about how I was SO DONE WITH THE COLD, like, 2 minutes ago?? Anyway... Classic Ontarian over here. Hates the cold and hates the hot. 

Now that I'm done with the "weather" portion of my blog, let's get to why we're all here... HOOPER OF THE MONTH! YAAAAAAAY!!

This month I went with a personal friend of mine. As you know, I've been keeping an eye on my Instagram for bad asses slaying the hoop and I definitely have some future HOTM picks lined up, but this person has been on my radar for a while. Even before beginning this monthly blog that features amazing hoopers, she was an inspiration to me. I've had the pleasure of hooping alongside her f...

Happy June Hoopers!

June in Toronto is magical for a hoop dancer. The weather is beautiful, the trees are full with leaves, the flow jams have begun, and we can finally toss a hoop 20 feet into the air without too much consequence. ;) 

Speaking of jams, there are plenty of regular and irregular flow/circus jams in our awesome city. If you are looking for a resource, you can check out the JAMS page right on this website OR there are some great groups on Facebook for last minute or one-off jams... Like this one: Flow Arts - Park Meet Ups

So onto the real reason you are here....

To read about the Hooper of the Month for June!

This month, I'm featuring a NEWish hoop crush of mine. I met her personally at Hoop Path in Toronto this...

Hi Hoopers,

There are various reasons why I struggled with this month’s blog post… But here are the 2 main reasons:

  1. Because I have been SO SO SICK…ughghghghghhh

  2. Because this month features one of the most beautiful hoop dancers I have seen with my own two eyes…

PREPARE FOR SOME GUSHING!

May is my birthday month (YAY!) so I thought it would be appropriate to treat myself to an interview with my ultimate hoop crush. Not only we were lucky enough for her to agree to this, but she answered my questions in the same style as her hoop dance; With passion, beauty, and grace.

I have been watching this hoop dancer for a couple of years on Instagram and Facebook. She doesn’t put out a ton of hoop videos but the ones she does are absolu...

I keep seeing snow fluttering by here in Toronto, but that is not stopping me from getting overly excited about spring and summer! Siiiigh... Warm weather... a northern hooper's winter dream. The lamps and decorative glassware can come out of hiding! The TV and plants are once again safe from potential demise at the hand of a flying plastic circle. Bye, Living Room. I'm going OUTSIDE! *angelic music*

Ok... So I am still wearing a parka, but I can smell spring! It is close....

Speaking of Northern Hoopers, there is one not too far around Lake Ontario that I'd like to announce as HooperSonic's next Hooper of the Month! This hooper has inspired me in so many ways. His commitment to fresh and creative showmanship leaves me smiling ear to...

Hello lovlies!

Yep... had some techy-mishaps trying to get this post up last week but I finally got my schedule AND my computer working together. (Thanks, guys...)

I've been especially excited to share this month's Hooper of the Month because it features someone I have known and grown to love over the last few years. It is such a pleasure to be able to continuously witness the benefits of a students regular practice in combination with my weekly teachings. I just happened to recently notice an enormous amount of amazing breakthroughs and changes with this particular person....in the past few months especially. She has really been working hard during class drills and you can see these significant changes in her hoop dancing all around...
