Eric Hernandez, Hoop Dancer for Cirque du Soleil’s “Totem” show, puts a modern spin, in street clothes, to Native American hoop dance. His high energy hoop performance here was performed for the YouTube staff at YouTube Space LA. Watch as he manipulates five hoops into different animals, all the while spinning up the enjoyment of his audience – and one very excited dog at the end. The video was shot by Arash Baboo from StrengthProject and Eric Hernandez lives in Los Angeles, California, USA.
Melodie Lamoureux has been traveling the world thanks to her hula hoop gig onCelebrity Cruises. She says, “Hooping around the world is a project I started six months ago. Instead of collecting souvenirs, I wanted to collect photos and footage of some of the beautiful destinations life has brought me to.” Watch for scenes from Juneau and Skagway’s Lower Lake in Alaska, Victoria, British Columbia – Seattle, Washington – San Francisco, California – and Lahaïna, Hawaii. Melodie currently lives in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, when she’s not hooping on the high seas, and the song she’s dancing to here is “Send Me On My Way” by Rusted Root, which you can snag on iTunes.
