Allison Ratterree is a retired public school teacher and school librarian. Needing a change and coming to the hoop a bit later in life, Allison has discovered a new passion for dance and fitness. She has been dancing with the Tap Dames and Dudes for four years and the Belladonnas for two years. Allison has been Hoopnotica certified and is currently FXP certified, and Hoop Love Coaching certified. Normally mistaken for a quiet type, she has been experimenting with choreography and fire dance. She teaches hoop dance fitness and offers fitness classes, hoop dance classes, hoop birthday parties, performances and handmade hoops. Allison loves to try new things and her favourite words are Dream, Create, Imagine and Inspire. She hopes to always aspire to have their meanings influence her life and actions.
