Lizz Rodriguez aka Spinphoria
Lizz purchased her first hula hoop on October 14, 2014. She originally started hooping as a way to make exercise more interesting and fun. However, once she discovered the flow arts community, hula hooping quickly turned into her passion and she has practiced every day since.
In the past year, Lizz has focused more on multi-prop manipulation—her favorites being double mini hoops and juggling. She also enjoys spinning triquetras and has recently begun training with dragon staff.
In February 2017, Lizz attended the first-ever Winter JAMboree. After her experience, she knew she wanted to continue attending flow festivals and connecting with the flow arts community. So, in 2018, she returned as an instructor for the Summer JAMboree, teaching her “Transition Exploration” mini hoops workshop. Then, for World Hoop Day she traveled to Santa Fe, New Mexico, to teach a beginner hoop class at the first-ever Santa Fe Flow Fest.
Lizz currently lives in the small town of Clovis, New Mexico, and plans on moving to Colorado in the future. Until then, her goal is to introduce flow arts to members of her community by teaching beginner classes and performing at local events.
