The Kid Should See This

Hula hoop dancer Lisa Lottie spins 6 glowing LED hula hoops

Watch hula hoop dancer Lisa Lottie perform a light-filled hoop routine with six LED hula hoops by SpinFX, whose professional level hoops can show off words, patterns, and graphics while being spun, similar to Monkey Lights on bicycle wheels. Lottie has trained with Escola Nacional de Circo in Rio de Janeiro and has a degree in Circus from London’s Conservatoire for Dance & Drama.

There are more circus feats in the archives, including riding a Cyr wheel, club & ring team juggling tricks, Maedir Eugster’s Balance, and some super fun circus action in an abandoned Victorian Sail factory.
