This week marked my second hoopiversary — or the second anniversary of when I started hooping.
I discovered hooping on Valentine’s Day in 2011 when I stumbled upon this video of a girl in a green hoop, and I ordered my first hoops that day. On the 19th my hoops came in the mail and I started this crazy journey, in which I’ve pretty much not been able to put them down since.
Now I’m continuing to spin in circles as I spread joy through hula hoops and dance.
I’ll leave you with a video from my practice on my hoopiversary and a short list of what music I’m hooping to now:
• Wild by Royal Teeth
• Wanna Say by Kat Graham
• Next to me by Emeli Sande
• Northern Lights by Cider Sky
• Hold On When You Get Love… by Stars
