New look & added features to my website!

Hey all!

With the help of my wonderful admin and a LOT of hard work, I have uploaded the new look to the site! What do you think? I know some of the links need to be easier to read and appreciate your feedback thus far. I will be continually adding more and more features as well as exciting new items in the web store so stay tuned. My intentions with this site is to provide you with the best information regarding classes, events in Atlanta and beyond, tools, inspiration, tutorials and tricks of the trade. I am here to connect with my community and to reach out through hoop dance to all demographics. I believe we can bring the world together, one hoop at a time. Hoops from the my heart, to yours. So reach out, come to a class or drop me a line. I want to hear from you!!!

Sincerely,

Rebecca DeShon

It’s never too late to have a happy childhood…

Give hoop dance a whirl ♥

Tomorrow morning in my Hoopnotica Hoop Dance class we will be focusing on getting in touch with our inner child and giving ourselves permission to come out and play. Come giggle, wiggle and shake off the week’s stresses, get your heart rate pumping and put a beaming smile on your face. We will twirl with the innocence of a child and learn playful moves that will tone your core and leave you coming back for more.

JOY ~ Bringing hooping to a wider demographic

My joy is bringing hoop dance to the masses! Spreading the love and revolving joy to all demographics. Sharing what I love & teaching the WHOLE WORLD about the vast benefits of hula hooping & hoop dance is my goal. I feel everyone can benefit in what I have found so incredibly life changing. No prejudices, no judgements, no pre-conceived notions, no stereotypes. ALL humans are capable of hooping! You can do it with the proper equipment (like a hand crafted adult sized dance hoop – see my store for details or email me on my contact form) dedicated practice and patience.

I have the opportunity to share my art with many this August through performing at a few events that are very different from one another and will spread hooping to a brand new audience! I am so excited about working with one of my favorite event promoters in Atlanta, Mon Cherie.

Here is just one of the many opportunities to come see me perform and meet me in person. I am thrilled to bring hooping to such a diverse group of people. Spreading the LOVE ♥ ♥ ♥

Summer Solstice

What a beautiful Summer Solstice!!!

Today I created a new hoop to add more energy into my daily practice! I have downsized to a MUCH smaller version of my normal hoop in hopes to get back to basics of my core movement and trim down my waistline after falling off track with my daily practice and gaining a few inches. The smaller size makes for faster movement of my body in order to keep the hoop in smooth rotation so in turn increasing cardio activity. I used bright glowing colors in honor of the SUN

I want to share with you a free music download as well!! One of my favorite artists for my dance is Bassnectar. You can download a free Massive Attack mash up from Bassnectar here as their gift to fans for Solstice: http://www.bassnectar.net/2010/06/massive-attack-bootleg/

Cheers to a splendid Summer for all!!!
