Hula hooping isn’t just for kiddies anymore. Hoop dance is becoming increasingly popular and with great reason; it’s so fun!
My hoop journey began last year. I was on campus with my friend Shelaine when, for some reason, the whole campus was evacuated. Well, we did what most would do at a time like that… Go to Chipotle! It worked out perfectly because Shelaine had plans to hoop with our friend Adelaide so I just tagged along. We ate our Chipotle and after we went to the back of the plaza and hula hooped. There were some funny looks we got but we didn’t care and hooped anyway. They taught me how to do a lasso and a vortex and it was so fun. After that, I needed a hoop ASAP. For the next I don’t know how long, hooping was all I could think about or talk about. I heard music and I just imagined what tricks I would do to match the hoop flow with the beats. After having a rough day, my boyfriend, Jordan, told me to come over for a surprise that would make my bad day turn around. When I got there he presented me with a hoop that he made just for me. I guess you can say the rest is history. Hooping is a fun way to exercise without even making it feel like it. I’m definitely not as good as the girls on YouTube but I still have fun.
