Me hooping to "Crystallize" by Lindsey Stirling

“Crystallize” Redux

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.

Revisiting My First Hooping Video EVER!

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.

Keep an eye out!
