I just started hula hooping over the summer. When I first tried I could not get it to stay up. After watching someon on ellen I learned how to get it to stay up. Every since then I love it. I just got my own hoop last month but I've been doing it as much as like. I plan to join a hoop dance team in spring or summer.

My name is Jennifer. I am 29 years old and I live in Jamestown, NY. I am a mother of 2 boys, 8 and 5. I have been with my husband for 8 years this coming June and we've been married for 4 years this past August. I am currently employed at the Jamestown YMCA as the hoop dance instructor. I have been hooping since September 4th, 2010. I found out about hoop dance from a friend of mine. I currently own 5 hoops, and each of my boys have one of their own. I love photography, camping, spending time with my family and dancing.

 Welcome to the group Tina! What is "ttcing"? Hope you learn some new things here. Hoop dance is a GREAT way to releave stress, express yourself, exercise and have fun. You should def try it some time. Where did you go to school? Where are you originaly from?

HELLOOOOOOO!!!! :)

 

 

1. Do you currently hoop/hula hoop/ hoop dance? (Wii Fit Does not count)

I hoop every night for fitness right now. Also when I take my kids to soccer, I'm the freak mom out there hooping on the field. I can't do all the pretty free flowing stuff yet but I'm getting there.

2. If yes to question #1, when did you start?

 

Early last fall. So not too long ago.

3. How did you hear about hoop dance?

Don't really remember for sure. Probably just stumbled onto it via the YouTube vortex I catch myself in at times.

4. Do you own your own hoop?

I do. I also plan to make some too.

5. What are your current hobbies?

Photography, working on my 64 Beetle and getting tattoos haha.

1. Do you currently hoop/hula hoop/ hoop dance? (Wii Fit Does not count)

I have been practicing hoop dance for about six, well closer to seven months. I am not that great yet but practice makes improvement! :)

2. If yes to question #1, when did you start?

I started hooping around the time my youngest two children started kindergarten this school year.

3. How did you hear about hoop dance?

I ran across some hoop dance videos on youtube and became interested. I won some competitions during my teenage years for length of time hula hooping so I knew I was good at that.

4. Do you own your own hoop?

I currently own two hoops, my first practice hoop broke about a month ago. My practice hoop is from HoopMamas on etsy.com its called Rainbow Warrior and I recently received my new LED hoop from CosmicHooper.

5. What are your current hobbies?

I enjoy hooping, baking, and occasionally playing World of Warcraft.
