Hooping Idol 2 officially got underway last week and we’ve introduced you to Judge #1 and Judge #2. Now it’s time to introduce you to Judge #3 so ladies and gentlemen, please give a great big Hooping Idol welcome to Babz Robinson! Babz comes to us from the great northern lands of Canada where she has been spinning things up since 2003 – our first Canadian connection back in the day. Having always been the one teaching others what she has been able to learn along the way, it wasn’t long before she was creating community and performing, becoming the iconic original hooper on the platforms at Shambhala, Motion Notion and other festivals throughout Western Canada. Soon she was teaching hooping workshops at festivals and on her home turf, training students who would go on to teach their own classes across Canada and beyond. In her travels with her hoop in tow, Babz has made the news while inspiring locals and others en route to start spinning things up in Costa Rica, Thailand and Sumatra. She’s also well-known for her awesomely advanced, professional and incredibly helpful hooping tutorials which she shares with the world for fun and for free. If Babz is making something, it’s gonna be good. In fact she’s received Hoopie Award nominations for her tutorials, as well as for Instructor of the Year, for two years running. She lives in Canmore, Alberta, Canada, where she can be found hooping in the Rocky Mountains, teaching classes and working a day job while performing on weekends and throughout the summer. Babz is psyched to be on board for Hooping Idol 2 and we couldn’t be more excited to have her sitting at the judge’s table. That’s all three judges for Hooping Idol – but wait, there’s four this year! Stay tuned to find out about Judge #4 later today.
