Hooping TED Talks

Hello Hoopers,

Have you ever wanted to do a TED Talk? If you have; you can imagine how scary of an experience it might be. Do you know what you would say?

If you were invited to provide a TED Talk, what would you want to share the most with the world about hooping?

Much love,
Safire


In a world where we are consistently pressured into adapting to a role that makes us fit into society, many people struggle to find a balance between work and play. But don’t we only start to love living life when we find a reason to get out of bed in the morning, not because we have to, but because we want to? In this talk I’m going to share with you my biggest passion − the Hula Hoop.


Theresa Rose speaks about the power of “joyful movement” to improve health and well-being at TEDxSarasota — all while hula-hooping nearly nonstop. Part of TEDxSarasota’s inaugural conference held on 12/12/12 with the theme “Creativity Matters” at the Historic Asolo Theatre in Sarasota, Florida.


Unlocking revolutionary imagination – Andreas is a practitioner of the hula hoops arts. He challenges some records on the TEDxBaltimore stage.

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Three time world hoop dancing champion, Dallas Arcand explains how dancing in circles has taught him to find a healthy balance in life. His journey of self discovery inspired his belief in the ability of circles to restore harmony. Dallas also shares his culture and performs a special hoop dance to illustrate the athletic and creative art form that saved his life.

Dallas Arcand is a high energy Aboriginal Entertainer from the Alexander (Kipohtakaw) Cree Nation near Edmonton, and world champion hoop dancer. Arcand is also a renowned musician and motivational speaker, facilitating workshops for aboriginal people of all ages, speaking on topics ranging from self-awareness to personal motivation. His Aboriginal name is ‘Dancing Buffalo Man’ (Nimihto Paskwa Mostôs Napew), and for many years Arcand had no idea that dancing would become a major influence in his life. A graduate of Mount Royal College with a General Studies Diploma majoring in Behavioural Sciences, he now delights in sharing his culture through this athletic and creative art form.
