We adore this moving piece by the Erie Dance Conservatory Company featuring dance hoopers Marianna Allen, Jessica Boscaljon, Emily Emanuel, Hannah Gibson, Zoey Keeley, Nina Ricci, Giana Ruffa, Alexia Snedeker, Kyleigh Suesser, Grace Twitchell, Madison Wieczorek, and Harlie Yahn. Choreography was done by Allegra Glinsky and Jennifer Dennehy, who also came up with the concept of using the hoops to represent the growth of cancer cells. Jennifer lives in Erie, Pennsylvania, USA, and the soundtrack for their performance is “We Insist” by Zoe Keating. Grab your own copy of it for your collection on iTunes.
Kassandra Morrison of the Friendly Fire Tribe, one of Hooping.org’s Video Editors, brings us not one, but two tutorials about some mesmerizing tricks to add to your hooping repertoire: The Fold Escalator and the Vertical Hand Fold. She begins with a demo while breaking down a few prerequisites, then slows it way down so you can see all of the important details. Kassandra lives in Akron, Ohio, USA, and the soundtrack for this is “Plus Loin” by Govinda and you can get your copy of it on iTunes.
