I was watching some wierd program the other day that showed someone using hulahoops in a circus act.



Some of the moves look very like poi moves so i ran out and bought myself two pretty pink hula hoops only to find its far more difficult than it looks!



If any one knows what i'm on about it would be great to know how to spin them properly.

Twice.

Unless you mean juggling rings.

Do a search.

And check out www.hooping.org.

Posted:Seems hooping is both more difficult and easier (hopefully) than it looks. I started hooping last weekend, was totally lost for the first 20 min., but soon couldn't put it down, and have a huge bruise on my hipbone to show for it. The woman I'm learning from says it "gets exponentially easier" after the basics. We'll see.

You can't fall off the floor, but sometimes you need a chair to reach the cookie jar.
