What is Hooping?
“Hooping is an emerging form of dance that uses larger hoops than the popular Wham-O kid toy, the hula hoop. Hooping is also often called Hoop Dancing. This movement is growing in popularity by incredible numbers as people pick up the hoop for all kinds of different reasons. Some love it for the childlike memories that is relives, others enjoy the physical connection and enjoy the health and exercise benefits of the hoop. Regardless of what brings you into the hoop, we can all agree that hooping is a fun-filled activity that will leave you smiling. The hoop itself has a long history, which pre-dates the 1950s hula hooping fad by several thousand years but the use of larger hoops and the fusion with dance is dated around the early 90’s.” — From Hoop City.
