Hoop Tokyo and I collaborated to present a sneak preview (and technically, to premiere) of the WHD Dance at Kamakura beach on August 14th. Ayumi, Mina, and Mana learned the dance with just few hours rehearsal two days before the performance; they are true troupers.
Here’s a snippet of the choreography. This segment is my favorite bit because it’s the first time I’ve seen it danced as a group outside the visions in my head and it moved more beautifully than I imagined. The crowd cheered; how encouraging is that?
I’m looking forward to polishing up the choreo and teaching you the dance through video tutorials and in person over the coming months. World Hoop Day is 12/12/12, so you will have lots of time to practice and prepare.
