Saturday, July 1, 6 p.m.—RUTLAND—NeighborWorks of Western Vermont will host a fun event, Hula Hoop Hoopla, Saturday, July 1, 6-8 p.m. in the Community Green space at 113 Library Ave., Rutland for children of all ages to learn about the Flow Arts.
Flow Arts describes movement-based disciplines like juggling, fire spinning, buugeng, poi, dance, and other object manipulation. During this event, there will be a focus on hooping and ensuring that everyone who wants to learn how to hoop — spins, tricks, and games — will take home a hoop to continue to practice all summer long.
During this fun and explorative how-to-make-a-hoop workshop, participants will be able to get a hoop cut and sized just for their body, and then, both children and adults can decorate it to their personal style. Dawn Smith-Pliner will be performing and facilitating hula hoop games such as the classic spin and pass, rabbit hole, and hula hoop high.
NeighborWorks of Western Vermont is seeking volunteers who would like to help with the different hoop game stations and volunteer flow artists to come share their talents in a live show. Contact Bianca Zanella at [email protected]
And of course, there will be healthy snacks. NeighborWorks of Western Vermont is the grateful sub-recipient of Rutland City’s Promise Community grant that enables it to provide free, fun, and healthy family activities for Rutlanders of all ages. This event is 100 percent free and open to the public. Children of all ages are encouraged to participate.
