Hula Hooping in Austin For Art and Exercise

Savannah Oliver HoopingThe Daily Texan at the University of Texas in Austin reports, “Hula-hooping may seem like a childhood pastime to you, but it’s considered art, exercise and a freeing form of expression for an emerging group of Austinites. In fact, hooping is part of the larger circus culture growing in Austin and around the world. Each Wednesday night between 7 p.m. and 2 a.m. at the Tiniest Bar in Texas, beginners, more advanced hoopers and poi spinners gather to practice, socialize and learn tricks with a group called The Gyronauts. Founding members Sean Stogner and Tash Kouri describe themselves as “a space-age glam-rock hoop troupe.” Meanwhile, C.U.@Circus is a much larger circus event that takes place each Sunday afternoon in the park behind Barton Springs Pool.
