On the Fourth of July, I did something that I haven’t done in a while: I got to hoop at the Ephrata Recreation Center! Wahoo! I thought I would do something that I have owed you guys for a while: my redo of my “Crystallize” video.
“Crystallize” by Lindsey Stirling was the first song I did a hoop video to, courtesy of The Hooping Game Facebook group that I had been a part of. Here’s the first video below.
Now, here’s the the new video: same song, same Jenn with different hair color, and accidental matching shirt and hoops.
It’s cool seeing how far I’ve come as a hooper. I’ve grown a lot! This was a fun comparison to do, and I hope you enjoyed both videos.
Remember the Hooping Game frenzy from three years ago? It was a Facebook group that you could join where you mentioned you wanted a song to hoop to, and someone gave you one. You had 48 hours to post your video, and then you gave your giver a song and they had to post a video. Ring a bell? I think it’s still going on, too, as a closed group on Facebook.
It was in that group and on YouTube is where I posted my very first hooping video. I had only started hooping in October 2013, so I was a little shy about participating, but I threw my proverbial hat in the proverbial ring.
Picture above is from that video. It was in our old apartment kitchen, and I couldn’t hoop outside because there was a ton of snow on the ground. I remember coming home from work after brainstorming my possible set up and after listening to the song I was given, which was “Crystalize” by Lindsey Stirling.
So, I did the video. Here it is!
So, my point of this post, mainly, is that I’m toying with revisiting this song again and see what I can come up with NOW with a few more years and skills under my belt. I’ll post a video, too, of course, in the spirit of the the first one.
