It is finally that time of year when those of us who hoop can take it outside, again, on a regular basis. Yay!
The West Coast premier of the long-awaited movie The Hooping Life was last Friday in Santa Cruz, California. Philo Hagen of Hooping.org held a hoop jam in a nearby park before the screening. It was a hoopstar-studded event!
If you are new to hooping, hoop jams are casual meet-ups in a park or facility where someone brings the music and people show up and hoop. I went to one in San Francisco last fall and will soon start holding weekly hoop jams here, in San Ramon, California. Hooping is even more fun when done in groups. Hoop jams are a great way to meet other hoop dancers and get in some good hoop practice time. You will probably meet new people and see a few moves you’ll want to add to your own hoop repertoire.
If you can’t find a hoop jam in your area, why not start your own. Get a few friends together, grab your hoops and music and head out to the park. Here are some tips from Hooping.org on How to Start a Hoop Group.
