Outa Control Saturn (on Facebook & @outacontrolsaturn on Instagram) brought her hooping talents to an incredibly unique photo project, and the result is outstanding! This photo is part of “The Human Spectrum” project, the brainchild of photographer Aaron Ansarov. Aaron describes his series as a way to show that wihtout reference to a person’s financial status, skin color, abilities or other differences, we are all vibrant beings. He says, “Our culture is diverse. Yet our society insists on breaking us apart. Of course one cannot immediately tell a person’s religion, sexual preference or political affiliation by sight, but what is always apparent is the color of our skin and this tends to be just enough to make someone be judged.” She lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA.

Last night, in a suspense filled Hooping Idol 6 Season Finale Results Show, we revealed the winner of our sixth exciting season of Hooping Idol. If you haven’t already watched it, please do. It’s quite the reminder of just how amazing this season was! Two months ago, while watching 60 auditions, I clicked play and saw the smiling face of Beth Anne of BA Hoops from Killen, Alabama, USA. With her immediate charisma and hoop skills I thought we should include her in the mix this year. Little did I know she was going to be capturing our hearts and spinning her way through to win it all. But who is Beth Anne, our new Hooping Idol? Let’s find out! Join me for a very special interview with our new Hooping Idol – Beth Anne.
Summer is officially here and Anni Lalu of Hooping Idol 6 is spinning it up, even in the summer rain. She says, “Not every day is sunny, but its always nice to hoop outside, even when it is raining. It was so nice dancing in the summer rain, but what a magical moment when the sun came out again!” Filmed in a canola field on the Baltic Sea in Laboe, Germany, Anni isn’t afraid to get a little muddy either and her hooping handstands are a joy to watch! She lives in Kiel, Germany. The soundtrack for this hooping video is “Drugs” from Ratatat. You can easily score a copy of it for your own music collection too over on iTunes.
