Posted:Welcome to HOP you two. Since no one else has done it I suppose I shall give the whole "do a search" speach at this point.

Hop is a great place to learn moves and be part of the community, check out THIS for lots of moves and such.

Also, you should get familiar with the search function. For the most part nearly any question has been discussed on HOP already, try a search for threads relating to your question and you will havea much better experience here. The search link is right above the "new thread" link.

Also be sure and stop in the introduction thread and tell everyone a bit about yourself.

Happy Spinning

I once learned every move that there was,
Every style, Every technique.
Then I woke up, and forgot it all,
So now I struggle to dream.

there is also a free lesson section on this site, you can find the link at the top.

You can also find articles with great advice of many moves including different weaves by clicking on the article section at the top. Go have a browse, there is lots of useful information!


Live like there is no tomorrow,
dance like nobody is watching
and hula hoop like wiggling will save the world.

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
