I love to watch you weave your hula hoop magic – be sure to tag @donnasparx or #hoopsparx in your posts, so we can cheer you on from the sidelines – and help troubleshoot of course. Have fun playing with the speed of your weaves too – they can be performed fast or slow for different effects. Try making big sweeping moves with your weaves and then bringing them in tight for a smaller and flickier movement. There is so much fun to be had in the world of hula hoop weaves.
