What is the history of hoop dancing? No, not the history of the hula hoop, which you can find on wikipedia easily, but rather, what is the history of CONTEMPORARY hoop dancing, the movement of hooping that we all know and love.
I’ll make the event to update the timeline every year so it will be an ongoing project but honestly… it may be the ONLY history project I ever get excited about in my whole life! I hope you like it.
* Please note that this timeline is by no means perfect, there are so very MANY events that have impacted the world of hoop dance, unfortunately in order to make some sense of things, I’ve had to consider only the key people and key events in order to keep the timeline manageable.
