Their fascinating stories reveal the unsuspected physical and mental benefits of playing with a hoop. With this simple tool, you can dance your way to greater stamina, sharper mental acuity, and emotional balance, and you may even find that hoopdancing increases your spiritual awareness and overall sense of well-being.

Historian and author, Gretchen Lemke-Santangelo, says, "As a stranger to hooping I was engrossed from start to finish. Hoopdance Revolution is a terrific piece of writing. Jan Camp tells the story by masterfully combining her words with the contributions of others. In doing so she makes the subject come alive, completely capturing its dynamism, egalitarianism, and participatory quality." Performance artist and author, Shailja Patel, says, "Hoopdance Revolution is going to be the definitive hooping text for a long time to come. This work is complete and compelling. It opens the reader to possibility, and paints a vivid, sensory world of healing and transformation."
