Sustained Spinning with Clare Foxx Love

sustainedspinning Clare Foxx Love of Dreamspin Hoop Dance knows how to spin it up, and she’s doing it here for six minutes in a beautiful dress. Sustained spinning is a practice in and of itself, as you might recall from watching whirling dervishes. Clare says, “The dervish rotates on the left foot, the center of the rotation being the ball of the left foot and the whole surface of the foot staying in contact with the floor. The impetus for the rotation is provided by the right foot, in a full 360-degree step.” Sustained spinning can also be quite beautiful to watch. “Spinning is not for everyone,” she says, adding, “Take it slow, building up through the minutes. Focus on your breath, on your hoop or just let go and enjoy losing focus of your surroundings, and be constantly aware of your feet. Stay present and enjoy the moment.” She lives in Brighton, England, UK, and the soundtrack is “Chaiyya Chaiyya” from the Bollywood film soundtrack “Chaiyya Chaiyya Dil Se” and it’s available on iTunes.
