Happy July Hoopers!

’Tis the season of hooping outdoors and hopefully, often! It’s also the season that I teach a million children hula hooping. (Which is maybe a contributing factor to why to blog post is so late) It is just nice to have the time to properly sit down and write this blog!

Let me be frank, I am IN LOVE with this hooper. Although I have never met him in person, his creativity and passion shine through his hoop dance via the magic of Instagram. I have been following him for at least a couple of years now and have always been entertained whether he’s using one hoop or four! The best way for me to describe his style in words would be: Tech-y Flow-y Dance-y Fun!

It’s not often to see technical hoop moves paired with this le...

It’s June!!!

I like June.... Outdoor flow arts jams have begun in my hometown of Toronto and flow festivals (for me) are only weeks away! I personally can’t wait to get outside more often to spend time inside of my hoop and alongside my flowmies!

Speaking of flowmies, the newest Hooper of the Month already feels like one to me. He is so kind and fun and free speaking! I have been following his journey online for a couple of years, at least. What I love most about his Instagram account is seeing how much he has progressed! You will notice that people who practice almost every day with passion, like June’s HOTM, are the ones who progress the most and fastest. His flippy, fancy, and fun moves make me smile and so does his charming pers...

Hey Hoopers!

You know that moment when you find something special? I felt that as soon as I stumbled upon the Instagram page for this month's Hooper of the Month!

Rich colours!

Wise advice!

Beautiful smiles!

....Sometimes, I hold back on commenting on a women's smile (or at least leave it until last, since there are so many more important things than having a beautiful smile....RIGHT, LADIES?!) but in this case, it needed to be mentioned. It's straight up - infectious! It pairs well with page full of wonderful videos and images. Her inspirational messages and willingness to share her deep (not always positive) emotions make her easy to connect with and love.

Watching her hoop videos are a treat. SO much energy and skill! Fr...

Hello and welcome back for another edition of HooperSonic’s Hooper of the Month!

I am not sure I’ve been this excited about a February in a long time. (Although, I am hoping to hit Mardi Gras and the Immersion Hoop Retreat in New Orleans next year! So I am sure I maaaaay be excited NEXT February as well)

Here in Toronto, February is cold and everyone has usually had it with snow by now. This year we didn’t have a proper snow until just a few weeks ago. It is now clear that winter is here, but if you REALLY think about it…. There are only a few more weeks until SPRING….. is only a few more weeks away.

Back to why I’m excited about February…

This month’s Hooper of the Month is PURE AWESOME! I’ve been following this hoop dancer since I f...

Happy 2019!

I hope you all had a lovely holiday, whatever you celebrate. I personally had a pretty low-key Christmas with my family and the break was a welcome change. Now that the hustle and bustle of a new year has begun, I am deeply immersed in teaching my regular weekly classes (woot!!) and planning some awesome Toronto springtime flow events.

HooperSonic is turning 4 years old on March 23rd and, as usual, we will celebrate in style with a mini flow fest featuring talented, local (and surrounding) instructors. We will eat delicious food, draw for raffle prizes and much more… All included in the ticket price! I am really looking forward to this event because each year we make it more fun and this year is shaping up to be just that...

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...

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.

Without fur...
