My name is Nettie. I am a homeschooling mother, modern-day hula hoop artist, hoop/dance instructor, choreographer, burlesque performer and the artistic director of the Nevaeh Dance Circus.
My deep love for these plastic circles began in 2010 when a member of the Boston Hoop Troupe taught me my first hula hoop trick.
For over a decade now hula hooping as brought me so much joy and happiness! As a result of this, I’ve spent countless hours transforming this recreation activity into an art form and profession for myself.
On January 1st, 2021, I began a project I called #hulahoopingeverydamnday with the only rule being, that I dedicated some amount of time every single day to my art (even if only a minute). I then post a clip of this time online to my social media account each day. After completing a full year of this project I decided to continue documenting this journey for a second consecutive year of #hulahoopingeverydamnday.
You can follow (or join) me on this hula hooping journey via my instagram @hoopwithnettieloops.
