Gloving is the first creative outlet I’ve ever felt truly connected to, I’m so glad it found me. I hope it can do the same for you!

There are some medical conditions that cause more serious and long-lasting hiccups that may need treatment. These include but are not limited to anorexia, meningitis, kidney failure, and heart attacks. Continue reading

My buddy took this picture of me one night when I was practicing.

Anyway, I’m going to be teaching you all how to perform a move called a “whip.” It’s simple in concept, but actually very difficult to do well, so I thought it would be helpful to break it down. It looks awesome when you get it right! So here’s the storyboard for the video I’ll be presenting on Wednesday.
