Let It Be

When I was a little girl, I was fascinated with the figure skaters that I saw on tv, but I couldn’t skate to save my life, and my fanciest “trick” was running into the boards at the ice rink when trying to snowplow my way to a stop failed (every single time). I’m still a lousy skater, but I’ve found my own way to spin in circles instead, and the…

Thanks again to everybody who came out on Friday night for Shall We Hoop? and a big air-five and a hug to Nina Infinity of Infinity Hoopdance for co-creating another community-building event with me. Hoopers are a pretty rad bunch of people to spend a Friday night with. On Saturday, hoopers at the Multilevel class were treated to a surprise visit from SaFire, who was in town to show off…

Shall We Hoop?

This is what happens when you put a group of hoopers together with a costumes, props, and a video camera. We shot this on Friday night at Shall We Hoop? – thank you to everyone who came out to the Bold Moves workshop (hope I didn’t overload you with too many variations but it was hard to resist sharing them all!) and to the costumed jam afterwards. It was great…

Flowlab Music Monday

I drove home from Calgary yesterday after another weekend of hoop immersion with the amazing community that is flourishing there. Baxter was in town with his Earthquaker Tour, and even though my body was still aching from taking the Edmonton workshops the weekend before, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to experience it again or for the chance to dance with the rest of my Alberta hoop family.  It is so…

Earthquaker Comes To Edmonton

This past weekend marked the fourth annual visit from hooping legend Jonathan Baxter of HoopPath, who delivered yet another deliciously transformative hoop workshop that has left me both inspired and utterly exhausted. This was the fourth trip to Edmonton, but the fifth time I have taken a HoopPath weekend, and if it’s any indication just how amazing I think they are, I’ll be taking it again this weekend in Calgary!…

Flowlab On Alberta Prime Time

 Flowlab hoop classes were featured on Alberta Prime Time’s “Around Alberta” segment this week! I was approached by the show to talk about my experience in becoming a full-time hoopdance instructor, and the piece features footage and interviews with some of my Hooping Basics students as well as my own hoopdance teacher/mentor/friend, SaFire. SaFire was my first hoop teacher when I started my hoop journey in 2009, and I definitely…

Flowlab Music Monday

Got a hankering for some bouncy, repetitive breaks? I’m still having a love affair with my 35 inch 5/8″ polypro (lovingly dubbed “hoop crack” by Edmo-hoopers) and this is just the kind of song I can get into a full-on breaks battle with. (We’ll be serving up a breaks workshop with Nicole Rose at this year’s SpinMilk 3  – have you got your ticket yet?)

Maya (Gurrll)

Meet Maya. A couple of years ago, Maya saw me hooping at a music festival in the mountains, and emailed me the week after to find out more about the hoop classes I was teaching. Fast forward to today, and Maya has become someone I dance with every week, and I am so very grateful to have her in my life! The expressive nature of her hoopdance is such a…

Edmonton Hoopers: Upcoming Events

Sometimes I think I should have been a juggler instead of a hooper! There are so many great events on the calendar to tell you about, including lots of opportunities to get out there and mingle with other local hoopers! First, the $10 off hoop sale continues until the end of February – this applies to all in-stock standard adult hoops and infinity-style collapsible hoops. Local shoppers can contact me…
