Hoopdance. The almost magical fusion of both the art of dance, and of course the art of the hoop. The hoop becomes an extension of the dancer and of the dance itself, whirling frantically around the dancer one moment, only to slow down to almost a gentle caress the next. In this beautiful performance piece Even Dew almost seems to be courting the hoop, dancing gracefully around it, but not immediately picking it up. Indeed it’s almost halfway through that the hoop enters her hand, but the wait is worth it as her dance is just as captivating outside of the hoop as it is within it. Shot in the Théâtre de la Reine Blanche at the Belly Fusions belly dance festival in Paris, France. Even lives in Bordeaux, France, and the soundtrack is by Wolfgang Stockmeier and it’s on iTunes.
