Hello! I’m Leslie, your group organizer. I live in Reston, work in Chantilly and am rarely without a hoop. I’ve been hooping for five years years, have been certified in a couple different hoop programs and have been teaching hoop for four years. I've found that I love sharing hooping and getting to meet others. I also play with other flow toys sporadically, including long-string wand, staff and poi.
My aim with this group is to list local hoop and flow jams, local events good for flow artists, classes, workshops, etc. I'm also open to hosting other hoop-related events such as hoop-making workshops. Feel free to make suggestions!
I have a nice portable speaker for music. I always bring extra hoops with me as well. If anyone wants to help organize, host a hoop jam or if anyone wants to suggest events that would be fantastically awesome.
Do YOU want to host a hoop jam near you? We absolutely welcome you to post your own jam info as a "suggested event." Just pick your day, time, location and add any extra information you want, then submit it as a suggested event. Once you have all that information chosen, we'll share the event by announcing it to the group! All you need to host is a few extra hoops to share, a speaker and a great playlist. :D
