Earlier this week I sent out a little note to a few hoop loving friends and asked them for some feedback on their hooping experience. I was overwhelmed by the loving responses I got in return. They put a huge smile in my heart and one brought me to tears.
I have watched with love and wonder as Eva, a hooping student at FAB Academy, has gone from strength to strength with her hooping, self improvement, confidence and all over GLOW!
Eva your words blow me away as does your vibrance every time we meet. You are a great inspiration. Thank you!
When I was a kid hooping was one of our favorite things to do.
One..two..five hoops...we didn't care. We came up with our own little
tricks and just had fun.
It took me more than 20 years to realize how lucky I was back then.
I re-started hooping 8 months ago at FAB Academy. I went to Deanne's
class and confronted her with the words: "Hey, I am sorry but I can't
hoop!" And she just smiled and said: "Why don't you try it out first!"
Her positive attitude was so contagious that I couldn't help but give it a try and it was pure FUN!!!
After a few spins I was able to keep the hoop on my waist for a little
while. What an uplifting experience! I took the class regularly and soon was able to do a few little tricks and made it to the next stage which
is chest hooping. I even did my own little hoop performance a few weeks ago! Dreams do come true, I know it!
Hooping really changed my life. I lost 25 cm on my waist and I am
fortunate enough to have to best hoop teacher in the world. It's not just my new shape, not just the huge amount of self-confidence I gained
from her class it's also the positive energy and the fun we have in
class every single time.
Hoop love is for me watching Deanne in her performances or in class and literally feeling the passion and the dedication she puts into her job. And
like a hoop doesn't have an end neither does hoop LOVE
Thank You, Deanne, for everything you have done for me!!!

On December 19th, 2010- Latin Jazz Diana-mite won 2nd place in the team division at the second annual Japan Salsa Cup competition - see http://japan-salsa.org/japancup.html
There were over 10 teams in this division and they judged us on technique, performance, costume, audience reaction, and timing. We lost by only two points. Last year we won first place, so although we were disappointed we could not defend our title, we were ecstatic that we could place again. Maybe we needed a few more hoots and howls from the crowd to give us the extra two points so we could have won!
The choreography was mainly done by myself, and Kike helps me with the beginning and the end. He knows how to put the cherry on the top and how to go in and out with a bang! I love how we artists can all collaborate with each other. And Kike really works with me on my concept and his image of how the costume can be done. I always have a design or color in mind, then I have him listen to the music, and it blows my mind what creation he imagines to make us look longer, stronger, and more FABulously sexy when we dance! Always always, a big big thank you from the bottom of our hearts, brother! Thank you dancers, too!
On Friday, in Latin Choreography and Performance class, anyone can join to learn styling and movement for sexy Latin vibes. Not all students are from Diana-mite team, so it is an open class. If you love Latin movement, and want to learn how to be sexy and free in performing, come on Fridays 8:30-10p.m.-- a great way to end the week and begin the weekend!
