What is hooping? Most basically, it’s hula-hooping, akin to those plastic circles used historically by kids as toys. In this new movement we drop the word “hula” AND the idea that it’s just for kids. Using handmade hoops we dance, we play, we MOVE – spinning hoops all over and around our bodies. It’s physical fitness, dance, creative movement, performing art, healing, a tool for personal and social change, and so much more. All rolled into one, amazing, circle.
So much more?
It’s a sub-culture. It’s a network. And it’s a community. When you pick up a hoop and begin your practice, you are joining a worldwide movement of enthusiasts. Those who enjoy learning and growing together. Here in Memphis our community is blossoming! Head on over to Hooping.org for global hoop news and Spin City – Memphis Hoop Tribe for good ole Memphis hoop love! Welcome!
