    It's Fun

    I used to hula hoop when I was a kid. Then it was about how many you could keep going at once. I could do nine. We didn't know all of the fancy tricks. Well, three years ago at a festival, there was a young woman selling hula hoops - nice ones, too. She was doing all kinds of...

    I didn't even know about dance hooping until last year when I temporarily moved to Ann Arbor, I ended up getting really into it and now I'd say I'm pretty decent at it. When I get my camera I'm going to upload a video to show my progress. Until then it'd be really cool to...

    I Hoop

     Every day for at least 15 minutes for part of my exercise.  I didn't learn to hula hoop until this year.  I can keep the hoop going for several minutes now.
