Malcolm Love says “he’s just messing around”, but the flight of his blue LED hoop and energetic flow is captivating. Here he is showing off his off-body groove and elbow tosses and even spins up doubles with a fabulous light display. Malcolm really puts his whole body into movement. He’s from Charlotte, North Carolina, USA, and the soundtrack for this is “She Was (feat. Birds of Paradise” by Seven Lions which you can download here on iTunes.
Something about Jake’s hooping makes me think of an illusionist at work. You can see his hands spinning up his hoop, but not all of it registers – it’s as though he is creating real magic. That is probably why he won our Newbie Hooper of the Year Award last year in the 2012 Hoopie Awards. And to make things even more special this time around we find Jake delivering his sublime isolations and moves to a soundtrack of his own creation, spinning up a dynamic partnership of both of his arts. Jake comes to us from New Jersey, USA.
Simon Tarrant is here to show us his unique blend of hoopdance and circus hooping. Simon regularly performs hula hooping, aerial acts, and clowning with Avalon circus in Newcastle. He also works as a Captain Starlight for the Starlight Foundation providing weapons of mass distraction to kids suffering from serious illness at the John Hunter Hospital. Simon is from the Hunter Region, New South Wales, Australia. He is currently touring with Weber’s Circus in Australia. Soundtrack: “Sway” by Michael Bublé (available on iTunes). A Hooping.org Video of the Day.
While Hooping.org is always scouting for hooping excellence, occasionally something crosses our path that simply captures our heart. Arvind was inspired earlier this year to start hooping having watched his daughter Sumit giving it a spin. Now he’s found a hoop instructor and a hoop of his own and he’s going for it. He lives in the United States.
