Grace Raven of Hoopgrace is back with a beautiful hooping video featuring the mountaintops near Wanaka and Queenstown in New Zealand. This video was inspired from a dream about home and how her hoop had carried her there. Grace says, “It was one of the most euphoric, glorious dreams I’ve ever had. When I woke up, I was so sad that it wasn’t real.” Although Grace couldn’t fly back home with her hoop, she was still able to enjoy a beautiful day in the mountains with her hoops. She currently lives in Tauranga, New Zealand, and the soundtrack to this video is unknown to us, so if you know the name of the song, please leave the info in our comments below. Thanks!
