London’s Shaftesbury Theatre was the venue for an incredible display of hooping that not only brightened the stage in an array of smiles and swirling color, but it wound up setting a new Guinness World Record for the Most Hula Hoops Spun Simultaneously. The group of young women who will now be going down in hoop history are none other than Marawa’s Majorettes, the hoop troupe organized by none other than Marawa The Amazing. How many hoops did they keep have spinning at once? They spun 264 hula hoops between them.
Marawa’s Majorettes have been dazzling audiences all over the UK since early 2012. They’ve become a powerhouse group of pals conquering new tricks, bigger stages and lighting the way for new groups of hoop heroes to get involved. The troupe were part of the 2012 London Olympic torch relay, and they also performed throughout the games, keeping the crowds buzzing at Olympic Park. Since then they’ve supported Kate Nash on her recent album launch, as well as taught dozens of workshops, teaching and spinning their way around the UK, and now they’ve landed themselves in the Guinness Book of World Records. They’re based out of London, England, UK.
