I had the opportunity to do a shoot for Tia of Inertia's Hoops while I was back in Ohio. Tia is very passionate about hooping. During our shoot all Tia could do was smile, you can tell that she really loves what she does. (And not to mention she is really really good at it).
Inertia's Hoops is a small business located and based in Wooster, Ohio. Tia has been dancing since the age of 4, since she stopped dance a few years ago she has taken her love of dance and put that into hooping. Recently Tia has started to craft & sell her own hoops! She makes a wide variety of hoops, from Beginner Exercise to Poly Pro Hoops. Tia's future plans include, offering hooping classes in her community, making & selling hoops and putting on performances. If you are interesting in buying your own hand crafted hoop made by Tia check out her Facebook Page - Inertia's Hoops !
Hooping is a up and coming culture. There are so many different kinds of hooping, ranging from a simple exercise to a beautiful art form. Before I moved, Tia made me a hoop. It's so much fun to stand in my kitchen and start hooping, (mind you I can only spin it around my waist, you know like how you would have done on the playground as a child) it's a great work out, that's for sure!
Some of you may be wondering "What exactly is Hooping?" To answer your questions, check out Hooping.org ! (I get lost watching hooping videos on YouTube. It's a beautiful art form.)
SIDE NOTE :
Did i mention that Tia is my cousin ? We grew up together and are only 2 months apart in age and only a 5 minute drive from each other. Since we were little ones I have always loved watching Tia preform whether it be shows that we would put on in the living room or her ballet recitals and now I get to watch her hoop ! She has always infatuated me with her amazing performance skills.
