Zachary Lambert -
My name is Zach and I’ve been spinning props since the spring of 2014. Although I’ve played with other props, my first love and favorite prop will always be the hoop. This prop speaks to my emotions unlike any other and allows me to express my creativity in ways I didn’t know were possible before I discovered flow arts. I currently live in Tampa, Florida and I spend a lot of my time working and pursing a nursing degree. I’m also a flight attendant and I enjoy using my travel benefits to traveling and meet up with other flow artists for jams all around the US. Much of my free time is spent inside my hoop where I’m constantly expanding on Coinflip tech variations and, as of lately, expanding on my multi hoop abilities. In recent years I’ve traveled the United States and taught workshops around the country on coinflips and variations. I have a huge passion for plane-melting types of hoop moves and this is what I aim to bring to the hoop community.
q & a
Main prop is hoops. I sometimes also spin fans, poi, and recently contact staff.
I’m passionate about teaching and also passionate about people unleashing their individual creativity with their props. I spent a good part of last Fall traveling and teaching some of my unique skills to other hoopers and it was an incredible and rewarding experience. I hope to be able to continue to do this in the future and keep on spreading my knowledge with the hoop community.
My Flow style is very techy and I do a lot of coinflips and plane-melting kinds of loves. I love learning and creating new tricks and incorporating them into my flow. Dizzy Dynamic, Albinoplant, and Monica Marie have been some of my biggest hoop inspirations.
I love to practice all over the place! When I’m home, I spend a big portion of my time hooping in my backyard, as well as down the street in my gyms studio. On the road I hoop wherever I can- on beaches, in forests, at music festivals and beyond.
I began my hoop journey at the music festival Counterpoint in 2014. A friend of my mine was spinning doubles at the main stage and caught my eye. It was one of the coolest thing I had ever seen. This interaction inspired my to buy my first hoop the day I got home from that festival. From that point on, I haven’t put down a hoop since.
The hoop and flow community has allowed me to become more confident and outgoing, and has brought me closer to incredible human beings from all around the globe. Sharing this incredible passion means that you always have a hobby in common with another flow artist and many times it’s all you need to make a new friend. The sense of community that comes with flow arts is unlike any other passion or hobby. Being a part of this community for the last couple years has allowed me to feel included and to include others, and I wish to continue to make everyone with an interest in flow arts feel welcomed into the community with open arms.
