See that photo up there? That’s the backyard of the house I just bought with my husband, Sam! I officially have my own backyard to hoop in!
We bought a nice little house last Friday, which is one of the reasons why posts have been scant here lately. I’ve been overwhelmed and busy, so blogging had to take sort of a backseat to other stuff.
But, yeah, we’re now homeowners, and have our own backyard to do stuff in. Eventually, we’ll get a fence. This is exciting stuff!
On the hooping front, I’ve got circus style class tonight, and the recital on Saturday. Yikes! Tickets are only $7.00, and you should totally come.
Ack! The Studio Spin Student Recital and Instructor Showcase is August 6, 2016! I’ve got a lot of work to do between now and then.
Actually, I have been working on my piece. I decided for my music, I am going to hoop to the song “Starlight” by one of my favorite bands, MUSE. It’s off their album Black Holes and Revelations, and which a fantastic piece of work, so you should check it out.
I’m glad I picked a song I know really really well this time, and one that I really really like. It’s a song that easily broken down into defined sections that can be choreographed quite easily.
I worked on my routine last night in the backyard. It was still hot as blazes in the evening, and tonight isn’t supposed to be much better, but I will still get outside and give it a few runs. I even made a new grippy hoop with engineering grade reflective tape. I hope it looks great when it perform!
Since I love MUSE, and I want you to discover them, too, I made this handy dandy Spotify playlist that you check out some of my favorites, and a good sampling of what they are about.
