Get lost in Leipzig in this beautiful hoop dance video by La Line. Moving throughout the city to German hip hop beats for her very first demo, filmed by Musikspzialisten and Gurmetköche, we get glimpses of her life amidst colorful art. We see her dog, her friends in the park, and especially her universal smile – something that seems to appear on the face of almost every hooper when they’re in the spin regardless of the language. La Line’s a delight to watch and we love her debut and we think you will too. The soundtrack for this is “Brückentag” by Jahmica & Jimmi Vau and you can check them out on Soundcloud.

If you’re any sort of video gaming fan then The Legend of Zelda series needs no introduction. If you’re not, well, the hero, Link, rushes off via a series of dungeons, puzzles, monsters and irritating faeries to rescue the princess Zelda. A lot. Thing is, although the series is named after her, she rarely gets screen time – so here to make things right is the very welcome return of Alexander “Xander” Nixon who, as Zelda, doesn’t need any old Link to save him. All that is needed is some hoops and a smile. The soundtrack is “Gerudo Valley” from the Legend of Zelda ’25th Anniversary Symphony” included in the game “Skyward Sword”. Xander lives in Brooklyn, New York, USA. A Hooping.org Video of the Day
If you were asked to do a project for the word “Green”, what would you do? If you were Camille Mara and you were asked to do just that for your Creative Communications class, the end result would be this video. Camille decided to show the connection between the green of nature and her inspiration for hooping in her class project. “They both provide a sacred place where no one judges, you are free to move how ever you want, and the hoop will always stay the same. It’s up to you to decide how to move it differently than others,” she explains. She lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA. The soundtrack spins right along with her theme for the project as well. It’s “Greenland” by Emancipator and it’s available for purchase on iTunes. A Hooping.org Video of the Day.
