Che Rippinger Interviewed on 103.5 The Fox Radio

Che’ Rippinger Interviewed on 103.5 The Fox for Hooping Idol 7

Famed D.J. Uncle Nasty of 103.5 The Fox radio station in Denver, Colorado got in a quick radio interview bumper right before voting closed for Hooping Idol 7 Goth Week. Che Rippinger is one of the 15 current participants, down from the original 21 talented hoop dancers selected from around the world for the international hula hoop dance competition.

Hooping Idol kind of like American Idol. But instead of singing a killer song, the contestants have to select music, coordinate talent, costumes and whatever’s needed, plus shoot, edit, and upload, the highest quality hoop dance music video possible, all according to a theme…in less than 4 days!! No Pressure, there.

Ms. Rippinger was so happy to get the call, and try to speak as concisely and quickly as possible for the short radio bumper. Uncle Nasty and the staff at The Fox, as it’s known in Denver, got the interview up on air, and also posted to their Facebook page–in less than a 1/2 hour–which is super speedy in media time.

Here’s the Short Radio Interview:

Che Rippinger in Hooping Idol 7!

Che Rippinger of Hip The Hoopla accepted into the 21 Hooping Idol 7 Contestants

Representing Denver, Colorado and the Fabulous Over 40 Hoop Community, I’m very excited, and extremely honored to be a part of the worldwide talent pool who threw their hats in the mix to take part. It’s a life-changing and personally meaningful goal for me to make it in. Let’s see how far I can go in this global competition that is one of the highlights of our hooping communities year!

I will need viewer votes, aka lots of friends, family and colleagues casting ballots on Hooping.org to continue on in the competition. Tune in on Monday 4/17 to view my work and cast your vote.

The first theme is “70’s Week” and we all have just 4 days to create a video that showcases our dance, personality, hooping and a good story. As for who makes it to the next round, 60% is viewer/voter determined, and 40% is decided by 4 amazing internationally known professional hooper judges. 6 talented beings will be cut on the very first round! Like many competitions, there are many factors that determine success. One is how relatable and personable we are to our audience. So it’s not just technical hoop skills alone, that will determine the ultimate winner. Everyone has their own source of brilliance that make them unique.

Thank you for following me on this journey. Please enjoy the following 3 short videos:
1. My “Casting Call” audition video

2. Finding out that I made it in!

3. A little bit on voting for Hooping Idol 7 on Hooping.org.

Thanks for watching, supporting, and believing in me!

Hoop Love, Ya’ll!
~Che’ Rippinger, Founder of Hip The Hoopla
