With the announcement yesterday of our 2011 Hooping Idol Finalists, it’s now time to make a couple more introductions. While many have made very public guesses as to who the other judge for Hooping Idol might be, none seemed to be aware that there are actually two. It’s time to reveal our remaining judges, as well as share with you additional treasures not previously mentioned in our unprecedented contest prize package. Our first two judges are, as you know, Anah “Hoopalicious” Reichenbach and Sharna Rose, so let’s meet the other two:
Bunny Hoop Star is a multimedia artist and intergalactic hoop instructor with a Hoop Empire based down under in Australia. Traveling the galaxy to spread hoop love and joy, whenever she visits her favorite sistar Planet, Earth, you will often find her teaching hoop skills in Australia, and throughout the world. With more than a decade of hooping experience, Bunny draws inspiration from both the Circus Arts and from the US ‘Hoop Dance’ scene, merging the two influences into a unique ‘hybrid’ hooping style. Her greatest hooping ambition is to galactivate as many humans as possible through the hoop. An accredited trainer with the Australian Sports Commission with Hoopie Award nominations to her credit, you may have spotted her on Channel 7′s Saturday Disney, Channel 10′s Totally Wild, or possibly on Mars.
Since 2001 Christabel “Hoopgirl” Zamor of HoopGirl.com has traveled the world teaching thousands her innovative hoopdance program, The HoopGirl Workout. Those who attend her seminars speak of experiencing a euphoric sense of inspiration, connection to their essence, and having been called “a goddess fitness guru” and even, “a spiritual super heroine”, she was inspired to make key transformational elements of her teaching available to women outside the hoop as well. Inside the hoop, Christabel has 5 instructional DVDs to her credit, a book – “Hooping: A Revolutionary Fitness Program”, along with her innovative 72+ hour HoopGirl Teacher Training Program approved by the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America, with certified instructors in 16 countries. She’s appeared on Live with Regis and Kelly, The Fox Morning Show with Mike and Juliet, as well as in the popumentary film The Hooping Life.
