About Us

Something For Everyone!

MHDR is a full weekend of hoops, flow, and fun. The weekend kicks off on Friday night with a welcome meeting and general hoop shenanigans. Workshops run throughout the weekend and are the core of MHDR, so plan on spending at least a few hours each day exploring and playing with your hoop. On Friday and Saturday evening, we’ll have a fire circle, LED jam, and community bonfire. And then on Saturday we’ll host our annual showcase.

Everyone takes a little extra time moving on Sunday morning, so we start with a group potluck breakfast to enjoy a little relaxation and getting to know each other. You then have the option to attend more workshops, before packing up and heading home.

Throughout the weekend you’l meet hoopers from all over the state (and beyond!), learn dozens of new tricks, and see things you’ve never seen before. Each year, attendees are stunned by the little surprises, bits of play, and the wonder that is found at MHDR.

Bring a friend or come by yourself. Either way, just be here for the best weekend of the summer.

Join us at MHDR2020 and experience it for yourself.

2020 Vendors Coming Soon!

I was surprised at how deep a hooping journey can be for me. I mean, I’m a hooper, so I know it’s deep, I know it’s endless, I know it’s powerful, but I saw things at the retreat that I never saw before, that went way beyond my wildest comprehension, things I could never have imagined. I felt like I was taken to a whole other planet, a whole other universe. The things I saw just blew my mind. It’s so powerful that I can’t even comprehend it just yet.
