ABOUT SHARNA ROSE
My own Hoop Dance journey began at the start of 2006 when Hoop Dance in the UK was in its infancy. I had been using an acu/exercise hoop and although I had great fun dancing with my hoop on my core it gave me severe internal bruising. About the same time the doctor asked me to stop I discovered hooping.org and found instructions on how to make my own dance hoop. I have not looked back since.
There were no hoop dance teachers in the UK (that I was aware of) when I started making and selling hoops on ebay. I had no one to hoop with and all my moves were learnt from the internet... even youtube was in its infancy! I was obsessed at first and spent hours everyday hooping in my house and garden. It was during this time that I developed my own strong personal style. Through my mistakes I learnt some valuable lessons about modifying how I react, move and how I respond. If you ever study with me you'll discover that this is a strong element in my teaching methods.
My life has dramatically changed since I started hooping. My last child had just started school and I had no idea what to do with my life. I felt directionless and was about to start working in the local supermarket. Now I have my own growing hoop business and I have many hoop dance friends both in the Uk and from across the globe. I love my life :-)
I have found the endless creative possibility of hoop dancing has been able to sustain my interest for all these years.... this is no mean feat as I have dipped in and out of creative and physical interests my whole life. I love that hoop dance is such a great workout without it feeling like a chore. If I could I would hoop all day everyday.
I hope that my website will fill you with inspiration and open your eyes to the fantastic creative potential inherent in man kind... expressed joyfully through hoop dance. No two hoopers are alike but all can inspire and awaken your inner dancer and reconnect you to your innerspin. Love, Laugh and Live in joy :-)
