United. Hoop - Diane Cluck
I sprained something on my left foot (probably from dancing, go figure) a few weeks ago and as a high energy, productivity paranoid person it has really been difficult to deal with the limitation on my movement. Dancing is really important to me for expelling energy and connecting with my body so I challenged myself to try hooping from a seated position with my mini hoop. It was really hard and I felt pretty limited on tricks but a little bit of the raw intuition of Diane Cluck and I got right into it!
I am absolutely enamored with her song, “United. The Way You Were,” which explores the duality of the self and what it feels like when you no longer feel like your duality is united. I wish I was advanced enough for dual hooping but for the sake of the video I played around with splitting myself into two parallel people who sometimes diverge and become out of sync. Hope you enjoy!
