emoticon can be really hard to know where to head next.

Dare to Dream...
Have the desire to do something bigger than yourself

Prepare the Dream...
Do your homework; be ready when opportunity comes.

Wear the Dream...
Do it!

Share the Dream...
Make others part of the dream, and it will become even greater than you had hoped.

Waist hooping

Once you are able to waist hoop comfortably, try dipping your hands inside the hoop in your open window that appears to your front or sides. Try tracing the hoop as it spins around you to figure out it's timing. Dipping is important to incorporate your arms and gain a sense of timing for lifts.

Hip hooping
If you can't do it, try spinning. Slowly work on this. It's taken me a year or more for it to stand still for just moments and do it!

Off Body passing and helicopter passes

As you get familar with your inner hoop space, what about your outer space?

Hand hooping

This is actually a figure 8 jump through tutorial but it will show you a figure 8. It's pretty cut and dry trick. I've been experimenting with the figure 8 and there are so many variations for it. It's awesome!

In your first month, or few hours of flight time, you should be able to waist hoop for at least 5-10 seconds, explore your space inside your hoop, do basic hand hooping in all levels (vertical, halo/lasso/horizontal).

Grip changes: Totally watch these videos, esp part 2
Part 2-

Walking while waist hooping
Basically the way I do it is time my walk forward with my front pushes.

Knee hooping

I'll finish this later...
