Lots of amazing things are happening in the world of Soolah Hoops and I am looking forward to bringing new hoop fun to the community! I will be working with the City of Frederick Parks and Recreation to bring hoop workshops and classes to people of all ages. I have been fleshing out a new programs for younger kids and parents to exercise and play with hoops! It's such a great way for families to connect after a busy week of work, school and other distractions. It's time to bring families together in fun! Be on the lookout for more details in the Workshops page. I will also be doing many events with The CIty of Frederick as well and can't wait to get started!
The Western Maryland Hooping Society kicked off their new kids hoop troupe on March 6th! 18 kids registered for the Spring Session. The kids named the troupe Shooting Diamond Hoopers and chose their troupe colors of Hot Pink, Neon Green, Purple and Silver! We worked on basic hooping to start with and are slowly introducing tricks as we work toward our Hoop Dance routine. We'll be working hard in the next few months on our routine and will keep you informed when we perform for our first event!
In March I took a fun AcroHoop class with Marria and Zach of Ninja Hoops and The Vegetable Circus! What amazing instructors! I learned a bunch of new tricks to incorporate into my hoop performance. I learned to cartwheel and do hand stands with my hoop in motion along with several other tricks! It was so much fun and trust me I had an amazing 3 hour workout that day. Was I sore? Indeed but it was a good soreness knowing that I can do many other fun things with my hoop when I play. I have also been working on several other tricks that I hope to bring to my performing this year so be on the lookout for some of the new stuff I am doing. It's always good to challenge yourself in the best way and Marria and Zach definitely did this!!
I have events beginning to book so my schedule will start to fill up soon! I will be at Frederick's Earth Day Celebration this year. Hoops invoke happiness about being able to just play on our precious planet. Showing gratitude toward our planet is important. Come on out and see all of the wonderful things that will be happening at this event!
Pyrophoric is busy scheduling events to perform at as well and you will see us at the Frederick Fireworks on July 4th! We can't wait to bring you some firey fun this year with fire breathing, fire staff, fire hoop, poi, orb, fire fans and more!
On another note, I have begun my teacher training with Safire Dance and am enjoying my classes immensely! Safire was one of my major inspirations as I began hooping so having her knowledge to improve my skills is a terrific benefit. I am grateful for this opportunity to learn more and hone my skils as a teacher and trainer.
Looking forward to seeing you at upcoming events!
