Trecia Franklin wants to break the stereotype that hooping is just for kids and show that anyone can do it, no matter his or her age. “When you pick the right hoop and start learning how to do it successfully, you’re going to be amazed,” she told the Lawton Constitution. She lives in Apache, Oklahoma, USA.
In this short documentary by Renae Visconti, we are introduced to Laura Keeton who talks frankly about how hooping changed her life quite dramatically. She says, “It made me feel good about myself. I hadn’t felt like that in a long time. It was like a new beginning.” Laura’s hoop is her favorite thing in the world. It centers her, allowing her to escape into her own little circle. She lives in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, USA.
