HoOp Lovers, new and old! I want this Tumblr to be dedicated to and for videos and tutorials on movement arts, flow toys, and object manipulation… primarily revolved around HOOPING! Many of us [hoopers] also like to dabble in related areas such as; poi, dart, staff, baton etc.. so entries about all are welcome! However, hooping is our primary focus here. This place is for our favourite videos, tutorials, and the music we Love to flow! [Including our own!] Let’s do the damn thang!

There are not enough portrayals of thick ballet dancers. This makes me very very happy.
Some one rang for thick ballet dancers?
it’s ballet night here at fyhardfemme, apparently.
There is a photo on my parents’ bedroom wall of my mother as a young girl, about 13 or 14 I think, in her ballet getup en pointe. She’s so beautiful and looks so happy. She was really good, but apparently at some competition she was told that with her body type she’d never “make it” as a dancer. So she didn’t. I think she stopped dancing and never did it again.
I feel blessed that my mother has chosen to share some of her life’s stories with me; I now know that she’s surrendered a lot of dreams because of other people, for better or worse.
This is one story that makes me so sad, because my mother is such a beautiful person, and I would love to have seen her dance, but because people like this Tumblr’s weren’t around and didn’t have a venue like this to speak up, I never will.
I already said this earlier, but I adore this soul’s tumblr. Her posts never cease to inspire and keep me motivated to keep working on not only rebuilding my strength and flexibility to the place I was pre-accident/surgery, but to even exceed that, further my abilities, and surpass my limits.
