spanglyrogers said: how do you hoop
Honestly, A LOT of practice. I started last year mid-november and at that point I literally could not even hoop around my waist, but now I can do all sorts of shit.
I say for anyone who wants to start/learn hoop dance just go out and buy the biggest size hoop you can find at walmart (about $8 and if it has water i suggest removing the water) and first just get comfortable hooping around the waist in both directions then work your way up from there.
There are plenty of tutorials on youtube for almost every trick out there and you can even make up your own once you get comfy.
