March 20, 2013 marked the first day of Spring in many parts of the world, but Sarah E. Sparkles presents a different view of springtime in Madison, Wisconsin, USA. In Sarah’s words, “This video is dedicated to the seasons where I don’t have to clear a space to dance, and I can dig my toes in the earth without getting frostbite. There’s nothing fancy here, just excitement and intention for the thaw.” Her energy is infectious, keeping her toasty, even if the weather is anything but warm. Sarah is hooping to “La Bamba 2013″ by Stylust Beats and Wick-it the Instigator check it out on SoundCloud.
That old saying is true that “location is everything.” And when you add a hooper and their hoop to some truly gorgeous scenery, the result is captivating. Danielle Lee of Hoop Elation takes us on a whirled-wind tour of the St. John Island in this video, filmed on the Ram’s Head Trail outside of the Concordia Eco-Resort in the US Virgin Islands. “This was by far my favorite trail, as it takes you past Salt Pond Bay, Salt Pond itself, and finally climbs up to Ram’s Head, which is is constantly hit by trade winds all the way from Africa!” The soundtrack is “Hercules” by Aaron Neville and it’s available on iTunes. Danielle lives in Madison, Wisconsin, USA.

The good news is there’s still time to make it happen so you can ring out 2012 with a boo-yah of your own. Danielle lives in Madison, Wisconsin, USA. The soundtrack is “Dance Yrself Clean” by LCD Soundsystem and it’s available on iTunes.
