If you’re familiar with Sia’s music video clip for her hit song “Chandelier” featuring young dancer Maddie Ziegler, you’re going to love this video. Georgia Bird from the Sensory Circus Tribe, who turns 12 years old today, has put her own hoop spin on this same dance in a performance piece for World Circus Day 2015. She’s only been hooping for 6 months and she choreographed this emotional hoop dance herself, which won her first place in her school’s talent show. She lives in Mackay, Queensland, Australia, and the soundtrack, of course, is “Chandelier” by Sia and it’s available on iTunes.
Ginger Spin-Ninja has put together a sparkling showcase of her hoop performance skills and more in her latest showreel. Her stunning LED twin hoops light up her amazing costumes – and she also shows us some silk poi as well – making her flirty flow looks truly effortless. Ginger lives in Tugun, Queensland, Australia, and the soundtrack for this one is “Supernatural” by AlunaGeorge, which you can download your very own copy of quite easily on iTunes.
