Angela O’Keefe of Angeliis Hoops took the 30/30 Challenge last year when she was new to hooping and what a hoppy new year she ended up having as a result! She learned a very important lesson too – dropping the hoop means you’re growing! She says, “I compiled all my progress this year into one video with blooper footage. I became totally hooked after joining the 2013 Hooping.org 30/30 Challenge. I cracked up and had to laugh at myself at how serious I looked. I found that in trying to discover my own ‘flow’ I often had this seriousness about me. I used to be so self conscious about hooping in front of the mirror, but now I just don’t even care where I am or whose looking. I think that is one of the things that I love most about hooping. I have found out more about who I am and I am learning to enjoy being me. If I don’t hoop like all the other expert hoopers, oh well, at least I can find a place in the hoop that takes me into my own zone. This next year I plan on hooping even more!” She lives in Sanbornville, New Hampshire, USA, and the soundtrack for this is pretty much all the hits of 2013 mixed into “Pop Danthology 2013” by Daniel Kim, available for free download on Soundcloud.
