I can’t say enough good things about Deanne Love of HoopLovers.com (yes, the gal from the post below). I sure hope I get the opportunity to meet this woman one day and get the chance to rock our hoops together. She has taught me much. I really feel she is so super genuine and I absolutely ADORE her style. Don’t you? Check out more of Deanne on her You Tube channel and her website. Here is a taste of her playing in her hoop. So graceful!
Deanne‘s funky grace.
She now offers video classes! Check them out.
And I found a great tutorial that adds some flow and variations on the basic isolations I taught last week at Kinetic Hive. Watch here.
I can’t gush about her and not include some marvelous photos, can I?
Let me know what you think! I am hoping to share with you the videos that I see each week in hopes of giving you some inspiration as they each inspire me. I would love to hear from you, leave a comment if you feel inspired!
