The senior class members of the UVM Hoop Troop at the University of Vermont perform in the Fall 2012 Orchesis Showcase and it’s not something to be missed. The UVM Hoop Dancing Club, which was started six years ago by Mona Shpongledhoops when she was a student at UVM, has spawned some truly amazing hoopers including Sam Resnicow. He performs here along with fellow seniors Alexa Algios, Nicole Peruso and Rose Vallesio and all we can say is “Wow!” Their performance soundtrack is “Hoola Hoop” by will.i.am featuring Nicole Scherzinger and they’re all currently living in Burlington, Vermont, USA.

Last year Sam Resnicow spun his way into the hearts and minds of hoopers everywhere on our first season of Hooping Idol, capturing the top spot in the public vote for more weeks of the contest than anybody else. Now Sam is returning to Hooping Idol, only this time around he’s one of our judges because nobody understands what it is like to be in Hooping Idol better than someone who has been there before. While we all have to wait until tomorrow to see what he has to say to the top seven finalists during Performance Week on Hooping Idol, we’ve been curious to find out what he’s been up to, what’s coming for Sam in the future and how the whole Idol experience is sitting with him a year later. Find out for yourself when we interview our Hooper of the Week – Sam Resnicow.
