Ellie (Elliecoptor) Pilott of Ellicoptor Hoops and Esther Fuge of NoFit State Circus recently hosted the first ever Welsh Hoop Convention in Cardiff, Wales, UK. A day long intensive of hooping workshops with instructors including Lisa Lottie, Miss Polly Hoops and more, this video gives all of us a glimpse into the happenings at WHoopC, and some beautiful insight into the hooping community in Wales.
Gail O’Brien of HoopSpin, our 2015 Instructor of the Year, is here with a new hooping tutorial for a “Throw into Reverse Escalator” and it’s a cool spin on a popular move. Don’t forget to the left lift while working on this too. As Gail explains, “If I don’t it kind of just slides to the floor.” Give this move a spin and have fun with it. Filmed in Bali by Morgan Jenkins of Hooptown Hotties, Gail is currently living in Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK.
You can find hoop dancer Bethany Ramm hula hooping until the sun sets in this lovely video made by Anna-Marie Ramm.

Bethany lives in Brighton, England, UK, and the soundtrack for this one is by Bensound and you can download it directly on Bensound’s website.
Go Pro Hula Cams have been a big hit in hooping videos for a couple of years, although they usually feature the fetching lady types.
