A Little Catching Up

You’ve probably been wondering where I’ve been.  The short answer is:  I’ve been sick.  Well, that’s the long answer, too.

Here’s what’s hoopy in my life during the past few days, excluding the past three, since I was, well, sick.

1.  Hooping.org’s 30/30 Fall Challenge:  I did it!  I hooped for 30 days!  Yay!  The results?  I got a lot better at what I’ve been learning in my classes.  And I wore a nice trampled-down brown spot my yard from where I was practicing.

2.  Studio Spin’s Masquerade Party:  Joan and I attended Studio Spin’s Masquerade party on Nov. 1.  It was fun!  I participated in the student showcase.  It went ok, but I had a lot of fun.  I did the Chicken Dance while hooping in a dirndl, or a traditional German dress, costume.  Here’s what I learned.

    Poofy polyester dirndl’s are not good to hoop in.

      I like performing.

         I took off the black piece to perform, and, of course, the mask.  Here’s a video of my performance, hoop drops and all.  I should note that while Joan was filming this, my phone did run out of memory, but most of it is here.

        The good thing was that I had a good audience response.  I also had a few people come up to me and try out hooping, so at least I got some interest and met some new people that way.

        Next performance?  It’ll be in a short top and leggings like I’m used to. Here’s the Vimeo version is you like that service better.
