This beautiful footage of Spiral from Spiral Circus Arts dancing with a hoop underwater was shot in the Tyrrhenian Sea, off the coast of the volcanic island of Stromboli, Italy.
I can’t imagine how hard it would be to hula hoop underwater, will have to give it a go! The ability Spiral has to move the hoop in such a smooth graceful way underwater is just amazing, and the choice of music to this clip suits beautifully.
Spiral extends a special thanks to Orion Fredericks for extensive camera work and support.
The music is ‘Embrace’ by Shen ( http://www.shenism.com/ ), vocals by Kinnie Starr. The lyrics are quite poignant for me, so I’ve included them below.
