The 2nd Annual World Hoop Day was celebrated all over the world by hoopdance communities, and Hoopnotica hosted our event in sunny Venice Beach, CA!

Hoopnotica donated 100 TravelHoops to the World Hoop Day organization - a non-profit organization committed to providing hoops to children in need. You can find out more about them and donate to their cause at!

Keaton and I started the WHD celebrating a little early when we hooped it up at her fiancĂ©’s company launch party the night before. We had so much fun hooping to djs Sammy Bliss (my main squeeze) and Shylock, and we spent much of the night teaching newbies how to get their hoops started.

After a good night's sleep, we headed to our favorite hooping spot in Venice and set up for World Hoop Day!

Soon, the Hoopers started arriving...

and much hooping fun insued!

Kids and adults alike enjoyed the hoopla. HoopMamma and her kids joined in on the fun too!

The lovely Hoopalicious (Anah of Hoop Revolution), her man Franc and even her dog Quinn joined us as well!

We worked on some new moves....

...and then it was time for the HOOP RAFFLE! Hoopnotica and Hoop Revolution each raffled off gorgeous hand made hoops! Congrats to the winners!

After hours of fun in the sun, it was finally time to call it a day. We packed up, said our goodbyes and planned to hoop together again soon!

Thanks everyone who made this World Hoop Day unforgettable! Get out there and share the joy of hoopdance with someone new! We'll have some video of our WHD experience up in a bit, so visit us here again soon ~Rayna
