Tip # 5 HoopShine – Size Matters! Candice Schutter & Lacye Lee of HoopShine Hoop-making Playshop

As a HoopShine Agent, I hear it all the time: “I want to, but I just can’t hoop!” I feel it my duty to challenge that assumption once and for all! Did you know that the size and weight of your hoop is of great significance? Most of the time when people say they can’t hoop it’s simply due to the fact that all they have practiced with are lightweight, store-bought hoops (reminiscent of the days of Wham-o). Today’s hoopdance hoops are made of weighted tubing, and are much larger than those of yesteryear. So get out of that self-defeating mindset, and get into a hoop that’s sure to make your spirit twirl with delight. Join us on Saturday, May 10th… and make a hoop that is the perfect fit for you!
