What is a Tricktionary?


It's like a dictionary - but for Hula Hoop Tricks!


In this hula hoop masterclass your coach, Amy Neel, will guide you step-by-step through a wide variety of off-body moves in the unique, misfit family of tricks we're calling:

Happy Hands and Halos


Wait, why are they called 'misfit' tricks?


We just mean they are 'off-body' tricks that don't quite fit into other popular hoop categories like isolations, folds or escalators - so we decided to give them their own category. Don't let the word 'misfit' fool you, these tricks are super fun and are sure to spice up your flow!


What type of skills can you expect to learn in this series?


Our 'hands and halos' series will cover a variety of single hoop tricks that start and end in your hands.

We will start off with foundational moves like hand hooping, halos, weaves and passing. Then we will move toward intermediate and advanced skills including one 360 weaves, 360 palm spins, one handed helicopter and more!


Each trick will be explained in it's own comprehensive tutorial, complete with troubleshooting, slow motion and additional variations for each move. This course will also include a stretching warm up video, helpful tips, combo creation ideas and a completion certificate!


Once you finish this course, you'll have a slew of shiny, new off-body moves along with the skills needed to combine them together and add them to your flow.


Our Tricktionary is the perfect tool for hoopers of all ages and skill levels. The happy hands and halo series is the best course for anyone who is ready to embark on their hoop journey and intermediate hoopers looking to add more off-body moves to their current flow.

Hi, I'm Amy and I'll be your instructor.


I spent eight years in the corporate world as a sales and marketing executive and began hooping as a way to get fit after having children.

On my journey to fitness, I found my passion.

I took a leap of faith, leaving my old life behind to pursue hooping full time. I began performing and teaching adults in 2014. Shortly after I joined forces with Madison Wiggin as co-owner of Mad About Hoops.

Together we formed Hustletown Hoopers (2017 Performance Troupe of the Year) and co-founded The High Altitude Hoop Retreat.

I've had the amazing opportunity to perform at Houston's Superbowl Live in 2017, countless halftime shows for NBA, MLS, Universities and even The Harlem Globe Trotters!

I perform regularly for The Children's museum of Houston, Houston's Freedom Over Texas Firework show and Houston's Thanksgiving Day parade, just to name a few.

Above all, I love sharing my passion for hoop dance with hoopers of all ages and skill levels.

Thanks for letting me be a part of your hoop journey.
