Happy New Year to my Beautiful Hoopers,

I wanted to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for being a part of my life this year. I am so deeply grateful to have the opportunity to share what I love and teach; the art and movement of Hoopdance.

It has been a lovely year of seeing my dreams come to fruition by having culminated a beautiful following of engaged students who attend my classes on a regular basis. I am eternally grateful to those who attend and support this endeavor on a weekly basis and allow me to be able to keep the classes going on a drop-in format. I also want to thank those of you who can not come weekly but come when your schedule allows. I am happy that with this support, I am able to provide an opportunity for you to continue your journey of dance and hooping.

Intentions for the New Year: I am very excited about 2012! I look forward to seeing all of you in class and journeying with you to expand and explore the very fertile grounds of hooping and dance…there is so much to learn, so much to feel and so much to enjoy together.

This will certainly include the learning the limitless repertoire of hoop tricks, dancing with our hearts wide open and expanding into other areas of movement mediation, healing and exploring the value of strength through movement. I look forward to furthering my education in all of these areas so that my teaching will continue to be rich, deep, fun and accessible for everyone. This year, I am also looking forward to collaborations with some incredible dancers, yoginis and healers in the Boulder community.

I decided not to have a Holiday Hoop Party this December as it is such a busy time for everyone and I decided to look into January/February for a fun Hoop Dance Party so that we can enjoy our community, hooping and dance without all of the holiday craziness. I also would love to facilitate more Hoop Building Workshops, Hiking and Hooping excursions perhaps and Hooping/Camping retreat weekend! I am also currently looking into venues for a monthly Hoopy Hour.

Evening Class?: Several people have asked me about evening classes as all of the classes I offer are during the day. I am certainly interested in teaching an evening class. Class space is hard to find during these prime time hours, but if there is a will there is a way. If there is enough interest, I would like to offer a 6-8 week session in which everyone would progress together as a whole. Please contact me if you are interested. Let me know days that work best for you and then I will have to research the venue.

Here is a link to a beautiful video to inspire you:

A quote from Gabrielle Roth:

“Dance is the fastest, most direct route to the truth — not some big truth that belongs to everybody, but the get down and personal kind, the what’s-happening-in-me-right-now kind of truth. We dance to reclaim our brilliant ability to disappear in something bigger, something safe, a space without a critic or a judge or an analyst.”

Blessings to all of you in this New Year and remember that we are a circle within a circle….with no beginning and never ending.
