It's February! Which means spring is closer and more importantly, outdoor hooping is almost upon us in wintery places like Toronto. Can't wait!
I'm excited to announce the newest Hooper of the Month but would like to note that I am looking everywhere for the next candidate. It could be a student of mine, it could be someone on social media, it could be anyone out there being a total bad ass with a hoop
I've been watching Instagram a lot lately and recently someone came into my feed with pure energy and mad skill. I immediately fell in love with her buttery shoulder hooping, her athletic abilities, and her fabulous tech skills. I love that this girl likes to take risks because that is how many happy accidents happen.
I have actually been meaning to get this project going for over 2 years now and it is finally happening! The idea of this "Hooper of the Month" interview thing was because I wanted to nose my way into people's lives. Hah! Kidding... I really wanted a fun way to introduce my personal community here in Toronto to some of my favourite hoopers for inspiration and to discover what particular things make other hoop communities around the globe so special.
I am really excited to see what answers we will get from hoop dancers in different communities, from diverse backgrounds, and of varying levels of experience. I hope these monthly interviews can be another positive method of connect...
