As June turned more to summer a few of us took off to the beach for a bit of a hula on what was a beautiful, if somewhat windy day and the turnout for the June meeting in the park was excellent despite the weather. This club wouldn't be anything without the enthusiasm of everyone who gets involved. Here is a round-up of upcoming events for July.
Elements of Flow festival (http://www.elementsofflow.com)
This local festival which is in its first year looks absolutely wonderful. It is taking place at Rougham Airfield in Bury St. Edmunds over the weekend of 30th July - 1st August 2010. ‘Elements of Flow’ is a 3 day workshop event aimed at exploring the concepts of energy flow and shared philosophies between the fields of martial arts, dance, circus skills and meditation. There will be a variety of activities on offer with workshops during the day, performances in the evening and camping available on site. Tickets can be booked on the website and include full weekend options as well as day tickets. Hula Hoop workshops for beginners and more advanced hoopers as well as trick swap sessions are being facilitated by Abi Coop.
Tickets still available for Norfolk Hoop Camp
Tickets are still available for the first ever Norfolk Hoop Camp. This promises to be as prestigious an event as the UKHG and is definitely not one to miss. Book now to avoid disappointment!
Hooping workshop for children
As part of the Lord Mayors celebrations on Saturday 10th July there will be an open workshop for children who want to hula! This is 1pm - 4pm at St. Georges Plain.
Norwich Hoop Club July Meeting
The next Hoop Club meeting is on Saturday 24th July in Chapelfield Gardens, 11am – 2pm. Note that this has been put back a week to the fourth Saturday of the month due to holidays and the popularity of the Latitude festival! Bring your own hoops if you can and feel free to bring iPods or mp3 players with your own music selections to share. Music will be provided by way of an ION Tailgater (http://www.ionaudio.com/tailgater) .

Norwich Circus which provides a space that is open to hoopers is continuing to meet on Mondays 6.30-8.30pm, at Belvedere Community Centre, Belvoir Street, NR2 3AZ. Entry is £4.00. (Refer to the Venue page).
Video of the Month
This is an outstanding example of sustained spinning from Rebecca Halls at the Hoop Convergence gathering earlier this year which really exemplifies what a beautiful art form it can be.
