I was at Return to Roots in Medford, New Jersey this past Saturday. Wow! What a great time! I need to do the whole weekend there next year. Seriously.
I was there mostly on Hooping.org business, but I did take a workshop, which was the Hoop Choreography workshop taught by the wonderful Amy Rogers. See the video I took of what we did below.
Otherwise, wandered the grounds with Sam, took photos, talked to people, and observed what people were doing. Strangely, I didn’t do much hooping, since it was so stinkin’ hot out, and it’s hard to hoop with a camera on your neck.
Here’s a link to what photos I do have up. There are a lots more to come!
I’m thinking about attending Return to Roots Gathering next year. It would be the first hooping festival/burner event that I would ever be going to.
It seemed interesting last year, but I wasn’t able to go due to a scheduling conflict, though people tried to get me to go. I think next year I will attempt to make the time and have the funds to go, at least for a day or two.
Have you ever been to a hooping festival like this? Return to Roots is actually takes place not too far from me, so it would be an ideal first hooping festival. Is it worth the cost? Did you enjoy it?
I suppose this is one of those new things to look forward in the coming year. I may have to give a festival a try!
