Yesterday was my very first Hoopdance class in Hackney, and boy was I excited ! I had hula hooped once before, and of course a few times as a child, but apart from that small amount of experience, I was (and still am) a total NEWBIE. The class was super welcoming and I enjoyed myself although I usually tend to have a shy disposition when amongst a new group. To make sure I wasn’t over-timid and did feel confident enough to mingle, I had prepared a special Hula Look for the occasion. I’d done a lot of research about Hooping in London and came to realise that it is a colorful and friendly world. Hoopers do not hesitate to pile on the body glitter or whip out their secret weapon : LED hoops that light up in the dark and create amazingly abstract and temporary art as they dance. On a more regular basis, quirky Hoopers tend to simply wear bright clothes and a massive grin on their face. So I went for that option to start off with.
Have you ever wanted to wear something but not “had the guts” ?
Have you ever wondered what other people would think if you did ?
Have you ever looked at someone with admiration and a pinch of jealousy ?
Was it because they were wearing something you would love to wear ? Or was it because they were daring something you would love to dare ?
Have you ever thought you can’t pull it off ?
Have you ever secretly thought it would suit you too ?
Have you ever wished you had more style ?
Have you ever cringed when a friend wants the same top or bag ? Then why do you shop in the same place as them ?
Have you tried anything different ? I repeat. Have you EVER EVEN TRIED something different ?
