Tiana Zoumer, this year’s Hoopie Award Winner for Female Hooper of the Year, graces us not only with a beautiful dance, but also with lovely words in her first ever tutorial. She explains her gratitude for recognition from the hoop community and her desire to give back. Tiana says, “This is a tutorial for those who would be inspired. Not the ‘look at me’ and ‘this is how to do’ tutorial, but ‘the feel it through’ and ‘we’ll find ourselves the moral’ tutorial.” Expanding on that she says, “This is a sharing of my ‘why’ rather than my ‘how to’. Thank YOU for sharing your gifts with the world. You are an inspiration.” And from all of us, thank you Tiana. She lives in Oakland, California, USA. The soundtrack is ”Water” by Lauryn Hill and it’s available on iTunes.
