Hello! I’m Leslie. I live in Reston, work in Herndon and am rarely without a hoop. I’ve been hooping for over a year, am certified through Hoopnotica for hoopdance levels one and two. I'm also working on the BodyHoops Fit Kids certification and will certify for HoopnoticaFit this summer. I've found that I love teaching hooping and want to share the hoop joy and meet more hoopers.
My aim with this group is to list local hoop jams, local events good for hooping, hoop classes, etc. At the moment jams may be few because it’s still on the chilly but that’ll change the minute it warms up outside, or if I can find an indoor location. I'm also open to hosting other hoop-related events such as hoop-making workshops. Feel free to make suggestions!
I’ll try to let members know about other local hooping events too—make sure to check out the DC Hoop Collective, Hoopdance DC, Aerial Graffiti and The Hula Hoop Project—all great local hooping groups and Meetups. Additionally, jams and informal events are open to poi and staff spinners, jugglers, etc.
I have a nice portable sound system for music. I always bring extra hoops with me as well. If anyone wants to help organize or if anyone wants to suggest events that would be fantastically awesome. Make sure you bring some water with you!
