“I get pretty fatigued by the idea that hip hop is axiomatically misogynistic, and I tend to steer clear of that minefield debate (even though I have a huge stake in it) because it’s usually waged by white feminists with an entry-level understanding of hip hop and defended by male rap fans who’ll call you a bitch who doesn’t “get it” if you baulk at its most vicious screeds.”

carefreeblkgrl: can you give me a short hooping 101 like how to purchase a hoop and start learning tricks?

I’ve gotten both of my hoops from etsy shops. My beginner hoop I purchased from Hoopingforlife, and my polypro hoop (intermediate, basically) from Headyhandmades

I’ve learned most everything about hooping tricks so far 100% from youtube tutorials. There’s no one way to learn to hoop, and no particular order of tricks you have to follow either. Some youtubers who post great tutorials are Deanne Love, GemGen101, and wildkathoops. If you feel kind of overwhelmed by all the videos and don’t know where to start, GemGen101 actually has a playlist called "Learn to Hoop Dance" that goes in a logical order of where to start that I have found very helpful. Here’s a playlist that I’ve been curating for myself of tutorials that I like and want to work on too. 

Another great resource is hooptrix

But my favorite hooping secret is a facebook group that i’m a part of full of a whole bunch of beautiful ladiez learning to hoop. We post videos of ourselves hooping and ask each other hooping questions and encourage and help each other to figure out whatever trick we’re working on. If you have a facebook and want to be added to it (and I highly recommend you should- it’s very motivating and helpful and is such a great positive environment in general and I’ve made so many nice friends in it), message me with your email and I would be happy to invite you to it! 

oh- a brief explanation of beginner hoops vs. intermediate hoops-
the beginning hoop weighs more. the weight provides more momentum when hooping, which slows down the hoop, thus making the process of learning tricks easier. the intermediate hoops are made from polypro material, and are very very light and airy. They’re harder to learn on because they move fast, but once you get used to hooping, they are very freeing and make off-body tricks a lot easier. 

it sounds like a lot of info, I know, but trust me, once you jump in and start it’s so addictive and fun. I loooooooove hooping and have never been this passionate about a way to stay active before. I would never have thought that I would find a way to exercise that makes me feel like a sensual fairy princess BUT I FOUND IT. good luck <3 feel free to ask any more hooping questions you may have
