Heard Museum World Championship Hoop Dance Contest
February 10, 2019
Today we travel north to the prestigious Heard Museum World Championship Hoop Dance Contest. The hoop dance “honors the cultural traditions from multiple indigenous communities that first employed hoop dance as a healing ceremony.” The dancers exhibit amazing balance, coordination and grace while keeping anywhere from a few hoops to as many as fifty hoops in constant motion, with precise and complex footwork. They are judged on precision, timing, rhythm, showmanship, creativity and speed. While there, explore the craft booths and the Heard Museum, one of Arizona’s finest cultural museums. For lunch, you will have a choice of the museum’s fine café and coffee shop or choose from among the local and Native American food vendors on the festival grounds. Bring your hat and camera, and join us for a riveting, intense and unique event.
