World Hoop Day
is the international hoopers holiday. It is a chance for us lovers of flow to learn, play, grow, and at times show off our stuff in the circle. This year will mark number 7 for St. Louis.

We will be posting more info very soon. You can follow WHDSTL on Facebook. Details about the audition are below. Hoop on! Hoop love!

Are you eager to share your flow as a soloist, or apart of a dynamic duo or trio ready for a spotlight? This is a great opportunity to present your work, your flow, and your art with your peers of the St. Louis and surrounding flow community. You may be a new upcoming artist or troupe, an established group, or a free to be flowing dancer. The flowcase is open to dancers and manipulators of all props and styles. There are just a few audition requirements listed below:
