Jasmine Kienne may not be on Hooping Idol 5 any longer, but she sure knows how to light up a room.

Spinning up both single and double hoops, Jasmine navigates her way through some delicious moves and flow in an almost psychedelic atmosphere. She lives in Austin, Texas, USA, and the soundtrack for this one is unknown to us, so if you know the tune, please share the info in the comments below.

Alexa can and she does it on air surrounded by Casey Martin and the Kamikaze Fireflies, belly dancers and knife balancing performers, all of whom were on set promoting the 2015 Scarborough Renaissance Festival.

Corean Gonzales of CoreanGonzales.com sure knows how to light up the night. Making her hooping.org debut on a beautifully lit stage, and with the stunning city lights of Austin as her backdrop, she spins up a series of excellent moves with multiple LED hula hoops.

Laura Scarborough, aka the “Isis of Devices” of Hoop Circle, takes a moment away from her microphone, vibraphone and synthesizer duties with The Golden Dawn Arkestra to take center stage with her maghoops and LED hoop and spin up some magic at the Hotel San Jose at SXSW in Austin. Of her hooping she says, “Being in the hoop for over 10 years, I continue to discover ‘spin’ (not ‘hoop tricks’) as a great source of joy. A ticket to bliss and freedom.” She lives in Austin, Texas, USA, and she’s dancing to “Saharan Knights” by The Golden Dawn Arkestra and it’s on iTunes.
Deven Zimmer is here with a new hula hooping tutorial for a combo that’s pretty crazy! She calls it the “Mermaid Dip” and this rotating back roll into a wedgie series is most certainly advanced, but as you can see for yourself, it isn’t impossible. If you’re looking for your next big challenge this weekend, we’re pretty sure this is it. She says, “It’s an extremely complicated trick so do not get discouraged! A lot of it is muscle memory and timing.” Deven lives in San Antonio, Texas, USA, and the soundtrack for this is by her friend Collin Swayze, aka Absent Tone. It’s called “yui” and you can follow him on Soundcloud.
