Over the holiday both Kayla and I kept our hoops close at hand. Although we were not together, we both wound up doing some impromptu hoop dance performances.
On Saturday the 2nd I traveled to Milwaukee, WI with Andy to visit family and see Stephen Marley perform at Summerfest. I brought my LED hoop with me and hardly put it down during his entire set. At one point my hoop escaped me and landed on a guy carrying 3 full beers, but lucky for me another man who was a fan of my hooping skills took care of that for me. Thanks dude! Then on Monday I was added to the line-up of Waterloo’s first ever 4th of July parade. It was a good experience, but next time I will opt to dance on a float or trailer rather than speed-walk-hoop-dancing on foot. Talk about heat exhaustion.
Kayla drew all the attention away from the parade she attended in Ward Springs, MN on the 4th when she showed off her hoop dance moves on the sidelines. She also performed on stage at Rockville Rockfest Days this Saturday evening. Unfortunately I was not able to join her, but I was having fun hosting a BBQ for my family and friends after the our hoop dance class in the park.
Next weekend you will find my colorful collection of hoops and me hooping my ever lovin’ butt off in the crowds and campgrounds at Moondance Jam In Walker, MN.
The Twistin Vixens next official performance will be over the 12 o’clock lunch hour on Friday, July 22nd for Summer on the Plaza at the Hennepin County Government Center. So if you are anywhere in the vicinity come check us out!
