This could be us but you don’t hoop

I need to find a hoop partner… who can put me on their shoulders.

Ninja Hoops is from Oakland, CA using marital arts and acrobats in their performances. I’ve used several of their tutorials for my personal flow. I look forward to attending one of their workshops in the future. More info at

Beyond excited about what the future holds, now it’s time to switch from mental sweat to body sweat! These upcoming days will be filled with sweating on the dance floor, at the gym, next to the pool… and anything but in my sleep! Here are some bad ass mixes to inspire that sweat! Please note, if you are under age your parents are going to be mad that you are listening to this. Explicit, sexual aggressive and all sorts of wonderful sinful things that summer are for. Plus these are also free downloads because you’re iPod looks hungry!

Pool party tunes!

For the mature music lover who gets lost in nostalgia.

Booty Shaking Mixes for week of August 6, 2014

Favorite recent mixes from Soundcloud to hula hoop your body too. Watch out for cars while crossing the street!

West coast bass that will have you moving. I have been working on breaks recently and thought that if I was able to keep up I would be a total bad ass. I am – I have the hoop break bruises to prove it now. Definitely an energetic mix.


This mix was perfect for working on slow, juicy movements. Overall just a great mix for going slower and paying attention to what your body is doing.


This is BAD ASS dance mix. I love AC Slater but I usually wouldn’t listen to a whole mix to hoop to but tons of fun garage and house that I haven’t paid much attention to lately. Just fun! Makes me wish garage was played more out.


THIS WEEK’S WILD AS FAWK CARD! Someone reposted this one & laughed out loud when reading the tags for this one. #icantstopwatchingtruckscrashintothislow-assbridge LOL!! No but really can ever stop watching trucks crack into this low ass bridge??? So wacky. Anyways this mix is warehouse techno minimal but has the energy to hoop to. It’s there – it’s a free download just like everything else on my mix list.


I will find myself not wanting to go out to just listen to house music, just that classic, funky, disco house music. “No, I really want to get bassed.” I liked how I completely forgot how badass 4-Peace was – well he is. I used to hear him play like (at one point before I was 21 years old) never ever freaking weekend in Arlington & Fort Worth, TX. Super groovy mix of PROMOS!! YOU ARE STUPID IF YOU DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS!!

Hope you enjoy these mixes. I post local dance events, tracks and dance music cultural notes and news at so “like” this site on Facebook so you don’t miss out. Hope you have an ass shaking week!

Hoop playshop in Dallas with Sarah Spirals August 3, 2014


I’ve hooped with Sarah for several years so I highly recommend anyone wanting to learn take any workshop she offers. She helped me a great deal with body rolls at her workshop in Arkansas at a festival called Old Growth – before I got dehydrated & had to take a break. (No such thing as brining too much water to a hoop jam.) I remember her telling me the first time she ever saw me hoop was at a Masdelux Park party and I was wearing heels. I don’t remember the heels but it was funny for her to tell me that she never knew I hooped then was suddenly out there seeing if I could do what she was doing. It was pure bliss. Being able to hoop at park with great music is a great way for me to bond with others without even talking. I’m excited that she will be hosting a hoop jam this Sunday south of downtown in Dallas.



This was a cool pic I took of her when she had a workshop with Caterina Suttin & Ciara Blossom. I know that Sarah had a great deal of love for hoop dance. She’s he one who created my poly pro hoops. Check out her Facebook page Passion in Motion  for pictures from her last workshop.
