The World Hoop Day Variety Show and Playshop combo was awesome! We had a modest audience for the show, which I understand from the theater’s manager, Terry, was pretty good for the first year an event like this happens. The show itself went beautifully.
For my act, I hooped to “Shut Up and Dance (With Me)” by Walk the Moon. At one point I went down into the audience to have someone come up on stage and, well, dance with me. No takers from the adults or the kids, BUT….one woman got up on stage with me after I was back on it. She danced with me. Whoever you are, ma’am, thank you.
The playshop rocked, too. We not only had kids make hoops, but we didn’t realized that the parents did, too! How cool is that?! We had plenty of hoops and supplies for hoop making. You can see me way in the back in the photo helping with extra shiny tape and such. Afterwards, we had two epic games: thread the needle and hoopscotch. Then, the four of us who performed went around and showed people tricks and techniques you can do with hoops.
It was a great morning. I was ready for lunch when I go home. Next year, you do need to come out. Put it on your calendar. The first Saturday in October. I’m pretty sure we’ll be doing this again.
