Our Throwback Thursday this week spins us back 25 years to the Soviet Union. Marina Kordoban was one of the greatest artists of the Soviet Union’s Great Circus about 25 years ago. Here we find her hula hooping perfectly upside down while standing on her head. We love it! But wait, there’s more. You’ve got to see her perform this move and others. It starts with the hoop being tossed to her foot. Seriously. And she comes out hooping while balanced atop a giant disco ball – plus you’ve never seen a multi-hooping finale quite like this one.
Parental Advisory: Adult Content Get ready to have your mind blown by this phenomenal boylesque hooping act by David Pereira and Jack Woodhead. This performance is sexy, packed with talent and hilarious all in one show! In his hoop dance David wows the crowd as he jumps through the hoop and one-leg hoops, all while wearing some killer patent leather pumps! Don’t miss out on his beautiful two hoop split – David’s contortionist skills – and the moment they roll out the desk chair too. We love Jacks’s surprise hooping appearance at the very end of the video too! This act was performed at The Trip in Berlin, Germany. The soundtracks to this are “Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor (on iTunes) and “Total Eclipse of the Heart” by Bonnie Tyler (on iTunes).

MoonWillow’s new hooping demo, otherwise known as Colette Taylor, is one that you won’t want to miss. Her skills and grace are captured so beautifully as she is seen hooping with a single hoop, double hoops, a fire hoop and LED hoops. Filmed on Arambol Beach in Goa, India, these gorgeous scenes of her hooping on the beach at sunset really took our breath away. This video was created by Room41-tv. She’s currently living in Manchester, England, UK. The soundtrack to this video is “Darjeeling” by Fakear. You can easily score a copy of this song for your own music collection too, over on iTunes.
Here’s a brand new hooping tutorial for a foot to hand trick that will make dropping your hoop look like it’s all part of the act! We love it and we love that gorgeous waterfall! Former staffer Natupa Tzin Tzin Tlini walks us through this trick in English and Espanol that she is calling a “Leg Toss with Spin” and it is starting with the hoop on your foot. If using your feet is new or uncomfortable still, don’t worry. She gives us all some exercises so we can start to get our bodies used to controlling the hoop with our foot too. And trust us, the resulting foot flip to hand flip is going to be so worth it! Go for it! Natupa currently lives in Mexico City, Mexico.
