I made jam biscuits for breakfast today. They were yummy and super EASY to make. I highly recommend the recipe...and plan to serve them on a fairly regular basis...they're just biscuits, after all!

Visit here for the recipe and pictures: these for breakfast today. They were yummy and super easy to make.

UPDATE May 13, 2013: Miss Laura is returning to Boulder, Colorado and is no longer available for private classes in Marietta, Georgia. :-(

Are you new to hoop dancing? Are you struggling to get started and want some one-on-one instruction? Or perhaps, you've attended the Alphabet Hoops basic hoop dance classes and are ready to learn some intermediate and advanced skills. Marietta, Georgia locals are lucky to have two (2!) hoop dance instructional options --- Lorene Shaw and Laura Roinestad!

*** Lorene Shaw ***

Lorene Shaw is a hooping enthusiast who discovered the joys of hula hooping in 2009. She teaches introductory hula hooping to both adults and children at Fusion Fitness and MMA and to City of Marietta elementary students (and grown ups!) via Marietta Community School.

You can contact her via:

Email (best way!):

Mobile Phone: 
(404) 271-7429


*** Laura Roinestad ***

Laura is a Hoopnotica-certified dance instructor who works full-time as a massage therapist at Integrated Health Solutions. She is available for all levels of private adult hoop dance and fire hooping lessons. 

(She occasionally offers a hoop dance skills series via Alphabet Hoops, so definitely "like" Alphabet Hoops on Facebook to keep current on class announcements!)

In addition to her hoop dancing skills, Laura has a background in ballet, jazz, modern, hip hop, pilates and yoga...all of which she leverages to the great benefit of her hoop dancing students!

You can contact Laura via Facebook under her company name, "Baila Hoops," or her personal Facebook page.
