Zuli Rami’s Impressive Hooping Debut

Zuli Rami's Impressive Hooping Debut Zuli Rami makes an impressive hooping.org debut with a pretty epic display of her hooping skills. Her quad arm hooping moves towards the start of the video are mesmerizing and make sure you stick around for the double pizza toss into twin helicopters which really made our jaws drop! Zuli lives in Mexico City, Mexico, and the soundtrack to this video is “Slip” by Elliot Moss, which you can download a copy of quite easily over on iTunes.

Burning Man Hooping Events Calendar 2015

Burning Man Hooping Events Calendar Burning Man Hooping Events Calendar 2015. Every year hoopers from all over the world make their way to the most uninhabitable place on earth, located essentially in the middle of nowhere, to hoop, meet, greet, teach, trade, party, spin and play. Where are they all going you ask? Burning Man, of course. Nearly 70,000 will be attending the big event this year and right now hoopers from all over are trying to figure out just what they are going to pack, how many hoops to bring, and just how they’re going to get it all to the largest annual conglomeration of hoopers anywhere in the world. As our World Hoop Day organizer Hoopin’ Annie once said, “Burning Man starts one week before Labor Day and ends with burned art installations, happiness, and a new sense of self and playa-fied everything.” Aren’t you excited? We certainly are!

So what is on the hooping calendar for Burning Man 2015? The 8th Annual SpinCycle Hoop Jam returns to Black Rock City so be sure to not to miss that, and there’s more hooping classes happening on the playa this year than we’ve ever seen before – and not just the typical beginner hooping classes either. There’s a lot you can learn boys and girls, so take note and if you’re new to Burning Man the locations will make sense once you’re there, and/or if there isn’t a location provided here you’ll need to locate Playa Info near Center Camp and find out where that camp is actually located. It’s also a good idea if you’re really invested in something to find and stop by that camp prior so you know where it is, and you can verify the schedule and that it’s actually happening. It’s Burning Man after all, things happen.

For a complete run down on everything noteworthy that is hoopening on the playa this year check out our annual Burning Man Hooping Events Calendar below. And if you know of something hooping related that didn’t make it into our listings please accept our apologies and be sure to add it in the comments below so everyone else will know about it too.
