Posted:I love my hoops as much as I love poi and staff and I noticed there was a few other hooping hoppers out there. So I thought HOP needed a hooping thread for us to chat about tricks and share our love for hoops. ubblove
I have been hooping for quite awhile now and have mastered quite a few tricks but I still havn't figured how to flick it up off the ground and move it up my legs. I can get it from my knees up but I saw this chic at the a circus and she had the hoops all on the ground and was bringing them up her legs one by one. It looked awesome.
I've got an idea of what I gotta do but havn't quite got it. I was wondering if anyone could give me any tips on this?
Thanks

Happy Hooping! ubbrollsmile

Posted:mmm, hoops smile no one in york really does them, thats all i know, my brightly coloured hoop is the only one that ever shows up. its funny watching people play with it tho smile I'm getting better very very slowly, I can actually do it round my chest a bit sometimes now smile and it doesn't fall down very much either... of course, wouldn't you know it, my boy is such a natural at it, but I'm enjoying my learning curve anyway. I still can't get the hang of getting it up from my waist to... anywhere, but I am doing better at getting it down from my arms to my hips biggrin

I thought you wrote "New York" and was about smack you since there are hooping workshops all over The Big Apple.

I guess I'll have to find other reasons.

i should really treck up to edinburgh some time when both meg and molly are around and get myself sorted with some new stuff to work on, but that would involve getting organised about something not related to my degree....

I'm so happy that her message officially made it around the world.

PLUS it's the date that Molly and I are getting married and we've promised Annie that we'd hoop a little hoop for world hoop day!

You can find more info about world hoop day on her tribe site
