The Hooping Life Screening in St. Louis

November 15th, 2011 · News

The STL Hoop Club and Hoop Connections from St.Charles are working hard to bring you all a new great event that will include a screening of The Hooping Life film in April or May of 2012. In order to bring this film to St. Louis we need to pay for the screening in advance. Our goal is to raise $500.00. Please help us by making a $20 contribution. Your contribution will secure you a ticket to the event or special perks if we screen the video for free. The overall event concept is still being decided.  You may make a donation by going to

Through interconnected stories, The Hooping Life takes the hula hoop from its origins as a child’s toy to its current status as club art form, teacher’s aid, and instrument of redemption. Filmed partly by the subjects themselves, and traveling from Burning Man to Time Square, from South Central to South Africa, the seven intimate portraits capture the birth and addictive growth of a new subculture.
