The Dream for Hoopcamp 2015

Dear Hoopcampers Past, Present and Future,
As we turn over a new leaf and enter into new endeavors, adventures and possibilities for our coming year, we face with renewed vision and focus our dreams and aspirations for 2015. It's time to shed the limitations and embrace the full circle of our power to manifest that which makes us feel our BEST because when we truthfully know and feel that we are exemplifying our most grounded and highest self, others are inspired by the magic we radiate. How then can we polish our 'shine' to its biggest and brightest eminence?
All the glitter, LED lights and sparkle tape are just a small part of this shine that comes most powerfully through BELIEVING!

When we believe in our dreams and when we believe that we have the focus and determination to allow them to come true and that all the magical moments along our path are priceless, then the universe will magnetize us towards our true north and all possibilities will manifest.
As we continue to live into all our questions -a light will SHINE our way- and when we really 'get' that this light is US and our unique POWER we will want to dance, sing, and HOOP it out with much LOVE as we return to the REDWOODS to SHINE and POLISH our skills and our flow to even more elegant heights at Hoopcamp's 'Puttin' On the Tricks' 2015 gathering.

We here at Hoopcamp Headquarters have been believing, polishing and keeping the dream alive. We are beyond excited to announce the first round confirmation of our CLASSIEST LINE-UP yet of WORLD FAMOUS HOOP DANCE PROFESSIONALS! at our new DREAM LOCATION in the Redwoods for Hoopcamp 2015.

Help out a Hoop Sister- Groovin Megz

A big call out to the Hoopcamp Family. Our beloved Hoop Sister- Megz needs our help. Please reach out and help!

From Megz GoFundMe Campaign

On Saturday Dec. 27th I was involved in car accident. My 2001 camry Stella Blue suffered most of the damages. I'm asking for help in raising funds for us both to recieve the bodywork we need.

$500 goes to new parts
$300 for labor
$200 for massage/chiropractic/NKT

As a personal trainer/group fitness instructor my jobs are an hour long and spread all throughout Portland Metro Area. I travel to my clients homes bringing the equipment needed: dumb bells, TRX, stability balls, medicine balls. It would be near impossible to bring all this with me on the bus or on a bike.

My soul thrives when helping others. I have pledged my life as service to the community, helping those make healthy life style changes for themselves and their families. By you helping me, it's enabling me to continue my work in the Portland communities. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Car accidents never happen at a "good time" in life. We all know this. I'm in the midst of huge life transitions. I'm moving in 2 weeks, in between jobs, buliding my clients and going back to school this term. I've never been more strapped for funds. Thank you for seeing me in this volunterable space and supporting me.
