Hoop Dance  
Hoop Dance


It is said that the Hoop Dance may have had an origin in spiritual ceremonials of the Southwest. We know that the Hoop Dance has gained momentum in its practice and varieties of form over the last fifty years. Men were the first Hoop dancers, but women have also become very proficient. It is a dance of dexterity and endurance. Each Hoop Dancer is responsible for the development of his/her own regalia and the hoop manipulations which form an eagle, a basket, a ladder. This is Sandra LaMouche, Bigstone Cree Hoop Dancer from Alberta, Canada. She is now engaged in writing a Master’s dissertation at Trent University about the history and health aspects of The Hoop Dance.
