This cannot be attributed to a specific person.
Some sources suggest ‘hooper’ is merely an old form of ‘cooper’, a barrel maker, while others suggest that it was the specialist function of making and fitting the metal hoops on barrels as opposed to the making of the wooden staves.

I would probably rate this dance higher if the crossings during the loop figure were R, L, R, L instead of R, R, R, L (someone told me once that they "used to be" that way but got changed somewhere along the line). This dance is often considered easy, but the transition from the loops to the rights and lefts (i.e. the progression) is rather tricky.
