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


Live, love, laugh and dance!

Posted:the big fleshy parts that hang off my chest? they're kind of like this big hoop barrier... i mean, i can sort of get it up to my hand, without killing it, but that involves moving my hand in a way that i cannot move said lumps of flesh....

but i will keep wiggling in lack of other advice tongue biggrin

tho other is appreciated.

Posted:ok well the only advice I can offer you is that as you do the wiggle to move the hoop up make sure when it gets to the fleshy area you do the upwards motion bit when the hoop is in contact with your back. Do a shoulder dropping motion as the hoop hits your front so that when it reaches your back it is in contact with a slightly higher part of your back each time....... not sure I put that very well........ did that make any sense?

Posted:how did I miss all these bosoms?

ok, to lift it from your waist to above your head in one go aim to move your hand straight up (avoiding said flesh) and turn at the same time.

does that help? hug

Posted:aha!
lack of tea strikes again, but I am better equipped now.

waist to boooosoms and beyond...

I'd approach that with scoopy thoughts in mind, which I think is what Skully was saying before. So (this is all worked out at my desk with no hoop or sizable bosoms to hand so take it with a pinch of mammary) I think maybe it's kind of like when the hoop is trying to escape down your thighs and you don't want it to, so you drop down a little by bending your knees and scoop the errant hoop up with your bottom. But at the other end of your body...

*pause for thought*

so when you have the hoop just under bosom-level, it rolls round to your back and you bend your knees a little or whatever to make you lower in relation to hoop and when it comes round the front again drop your chest to be under hoop and stick it out to scoop it up.

it'll probably give you horrid bruises though so take care hug

we gotta get some funky names for hoop moves so that we can be like the other cool kids and then have philosphical arguments about what's what and who's where and when and stuff.
can we?

Posted:Oh Dear God Noooooooo. No Techie terms and pages and pages of arguements on whether you need to tilt your hip an inch to the left or right or its not called a :insert any stupid name you wish to call your move:

I've already all but stopped going into the poi moves forum because of threads like that. They never make any sense to me and just leave me feeling like I never want to pick my poi up again. Lets stick with vagueness and words like 'wiggle' and 'scoopy jiggling'. Don't let the tech heads take over hooping I beg you! I want the love of the Wiggle to stay fun!

I vote the most tech term we ever use for hooping is 'shiggling'. Who's with me?

Posted:bitch slaps the bad boys for ruining hooping with tech talk

Don't make me come after you with the axe boys! NO TECHIE HOOPING! Hooping is about wiggling, jiggling and feeling all uber sexy. Its not about maths, physics or any of that other uber boring stuff you boys insist poi-ing is about!

Molly keep that bad man under control and I'll nail Drews feet to the floor and put some gaffer tape over his mouth. That should stop them biggrin

Posted:BTW, if you are into hooping, I'd check out In Motion With Michael Moschen. He does a 1 and 2 hoop routine using metal hoops. A lot of isolation work and other interesting stuff that I haven't seen many people doing.



Between contact juggling, hoop stuff, bounce juggling, s-shaped staff twirling, and a little club swinging, pretty neat variety of stuff in that video. I believe I've seen the video for it at a couple of the online juggling stores.

Posted:skul was right, and i like your explanation miss mols. doens't mean i can actually do it tho... whenever it even sort of gets above my daily-shrinking bosom it sort of falls to the ground with a clatter within a second or two....

of course i have the worlds uber-cheapest lightest plastic hoop cause its what i could find.....'

perhaps i really need to invest in something that weighs... anything....

of course i suck in general... but i can do it indoors smile and wiggling is fun, even if i look like an idiot...

i see all these girls looking so great doing it and im like, hmm, like, in three years.. maybe... or maybe i will always look like an idiot!

and yes, hooping is about math too, so is dancing, but you can ignore the math too and just ubblove

much better most days, maths gets all hard when i'm tired and its not like *any* of them can apply their physics to actually being good hoopers biggrin so you win anyway ubbrollsmile
