The Kids in Norman Oklahoma Sure Are Adorable


casphoopsong Who remembers the afternoons dragging on after school and wanting to go home? Well, the elementary school children that attend the Community After School Program, otherwise known as CASP in Norman, Oklahoma, USA, have been lucky enough to receive a donation of a GoPro camera to make fun videos like this one. You’re in for an unbearably cute treat as 9 of CASP’s 17 after-school programs join forces to create their “hoopy” version of “Wiggle”, originally by Jason Deroulo. Not only were we astounded by the talent of these young people, we were impressed by how passionate the kids are about participating in song and dance while learning to have healthy habits.

Salvation with a Hula Hoop

Screen Shot 2013-05-02 at 2.31.09 PM 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.
