I have a select group of hooping videos that I re-share because I love them so. My favorite hoop dancers don't incorporate a lot of highly complicated hoop "tricks." They are simply dancing and their moves are completely reachable to every day hooping enthusiasts (as opposed to hooping "performers") like me.
Of the many hoop dancers that I admire, Beth Lavinder's style is the one that inspires me the most. In the following video, watch how she moves around the floor. Notice how she incorporates her arms and legs into her hooping. She is a true "hoop dancer" and one that I strive to emulate.
