The Hooping Life
There was a time when catching a wave, skating a pipe, emceeing a scene was off the radar. Now there’s a new kid on the block. Hooping a.k.a modern hula-hooping is emerging as a liberating form of self-expression. In the same way that skateboards, once relegated to the straight and narrow world of sidewalks are now flying machines, hoops have become dance partners, a form of moving meditation, and a way of life. Michelle Obama hoops at the White House to show how fun it is to move and be healthy.
