Hey Hoopers!

World Hoop Day is right around the corner! I hope you will join us for all the hooping demos, lessons, hoop making for WHD donation, and of course getting your groove on with your hoop and some funky jams! We will have a group potluck, so bring a snack to share! More details on the events page:

World Hoop Day
[masked] am to 4:30 pm (and possibly jamming on into the night!)
Sylvan Stage on 15th Streets and Independence (in the Shadow of the Washington Monument)


Another exciting event coming up soon, the Hoopnotica Thanksgiving Hoop & Surf Retreat at Bamboo Yoga Play in COSTA RICA!!! 

November 19th - November 26th
Domilocos Beach Hotel, Dominical, Costa Rica

This retreat is open to all levels! Hoop, play, and become a Hoopnotica certified instructor along the way! Meet hoop enthusiasts like yourself, acquire new skills, sculpt your waistline, swim and even learn to surf the gentle waves. Enjoy healthy fresh foods, and meditate on your newfound awareness. Members of Hoop Dance DC! are being offered a REDUCED RATE for double occupancy rooms!! This early bird rate is only available until November 3rd, so sign up today! You can learn more about the retreat here: and of course check out our event page to RSVP and find out how to get the discounted room price here:


A note on the mailing list: We recently had someone start an email thread about looking for a UMD student to teach hoop classes which had several responses. When you reply to the mailing list, this sends the message to all of our members and some people do not wish to receive messages outside of our newsletters and consider it spam. This can make members unhappy and cause them to leave our group. Instead, please use our meetup message board to hold discussions about all aspects of hoop dance! Anyone in the meetup group can start or contribute to the discussion. The direct link to the message board is:
I would encourage everyone to check the message board frequently in order to contribute to the conversation. You can even receive email updates when someone posts to the message board by clicking the "Track this message board" link at the top of the page. 

Another good way to communicate with area hoopers is to join our facebook group. Area instructors and members of the community often post classes and spontaneous events and jams that aren't posted on the meetup page. The link for the facebook group is:


Classes and events have started to slow down for winter but don't fear! We are working to get more classes set up and looking for indoor space for events and hoop jams. Keep an eye out on our calendar for details! ~

Hoop on!
