Classes resume 7/10

My Hoopnotica classes at Pera Dance Studio will resume this Saturday, July 10th, 2010. I am thrilled to share with you the hipnotic tunes that I have recently acquired as well as spanky new hand crafted hula hoops that I have been working on! My home hoop making studio is up and running! Soon I will have hoops available through this site as well as my classes. My wonderful Admin and I have been working very hard. New sassy choreography has been perfected into new combo’s to share ! I will try to fit in as much as possible in the coming weeks in addition to award winning Hoopnotica curriculum. My goal is to give students a few transitions to work with on your path to creating your own special dance. Enabling you to open up into your groove and move from just simply trick hooping or waist hooping and actually dancing fluid in motion, at one with your hoop.

Posted on 4.0 launched today

Hey hoopers! If you didn’t already know, my favorite site launched the newly vamped version of their already wonderful site today! I am in LOVE with it! This site is like the ‘Holy Grail’ of all things hoopy. I have been following them since the day I first picked up my adult sized dance hoop back in Summer of 2008 (Thank you Becky Bear & Sparrow). This site has been with me every twirl and twist, all the times I dropped the hoop, every drop of sweat, the furrowing of the brows, each push and pull. I learned so many things; how to make hula hoops, tricks, flow challenges, I connected with other hoopers, and enjoyed reading about each story of hoopers in the news from all across the globe. It was on where I first found Hoopnotica and was completely thrown for a loop that their were people out there making their living by teaching and generating hoop love. has been a staple in my ‘hoop diet’ and still to this day I spend my first cup of coffee in the morning right along side of Now, it has grown into a full on hooper mecca of networking where you or your business can create profiles with photos and add groups, forums with endless information, you can advertise your business and So MUCH MORE~ Thank you to for all your hard work over the years and helping us all grow as hoopers. If you have yet to see the site I am raving about, change your life/hoop-path and click this link

As if everything they already do for the hooping community including the new 4.0 isn’t enough?! They are having some very exciting contests offering up some $1,000 worth of wicked cool prizes in celebration of today’s launch like LED hoops, fire/led hoop combo, Hooping University subscription, a Hoopnotica prize package and MORE. So join in on the fun, check out hooping for your first time and/or sign up!! I am looking forward to all of the challenges!

Congrat’s on the new site!
