Featured Hooper - Kelsey Lenae
Hey Flowmies! My name is Kelsey Lenae and I'm a 26 year old flow performance artist who currently lives in Sioux City, Iowa. I've only been hooping for 1.5 years, but I've danced, sang, and played music almost my whole life. I first discovered hooping and other flow arts at the Texas Renaissance Festival in Fall of 2015 - I watched so many beautiful souls dance with various fire props on the Gypsy Theater stage inside the fairgrounds & then I saw even more fire & LED magic around the campgrounds bonfire later that night! I realized immediately, right then and there, that my dancing was just missing a prop! After countless hours of research, I ordered my first beginner 39" PE 100psi 3/4" hoop! As soon as I had it in my hands, I felt such a powerful connection to this circle. I practiced every single day - with many drops, mess-ups, and bruises - as I drilled tricks & combos from Youtube tutorials. Always making sure to video myself as often as possible to critique myself. I am so grateful of my musical background - it accelerated my ability to develop "my flow" to the max. Flow arts are such an incredible release of energy while simultaneously being meditative movement. I love flow arts because it's something I can continue to grow and learn from - in every aspect. The amount of confidence and self love I've gained from hooping is just incredible. I used to have major stage fright when I sang, played music, or danced - but when I'm with my hoop, the whole world could be watching and I'd be just fine! I've performed in front of many different crowd sizes & various venues now - and it's so addicting and fulfilling! It's such an amazing and freeing feeling that I can only hope to share with as many people as possible, whether you hoop for yourself, or want to become a performance artist.
I am so incredibly grateful and honored to be sponsored by Santana Hoops. Sandy asked me to be a rep for her company on November 18th, 2016 after I'd already been promoting her hoops since the beginning of my hoop journey. My first HDPE hoop was purchased from her in March'16 and it was my absolute favorite, take everywhere hoop & it still is! Flawless execution in all of her work & such a giving and kind person - I couldn't be happier to represent such an awesome company!
My future in flow arts is limitless - I cannot wait to discover even more props like my new dragon staff, silk veil fans, and contact juggling ball. I hope to learn fire hooping by the end of 2017 as well! If you have any questions regarding my hoop journey, starting yours or really ANYTHING, please find me on Instagram or Facebook - I'd LOVE to connect with you! You CAN hoop with me! <3
