Samantha Moore
unnamed
Samantha has been in love with hula-hooping for several years now. Samantha was inspired by watching a hula-hooper perform and went out to buy a hoop the next day. Since then she has dedicated every second she could to be the best she can in the art.  She enjoys dance and the Just Dance Studio in Chittenango, NY. To Samantha, it is a place where she can be inspired by the elegant and mind blowing atmosphere of everyone there. It is her goal to help others to be inspired in the art of dance and hula-hooping as she was when she first witnessed it.
