In 2008, fifty excited hoopers gathered for the first time at Chestnut Ridge just outside Carrboro, NC, one of the birth spots of modern day hoop dance.
There had never before been the opportunity for many teachers to gather to share ideas, techniques, meals, stories or a deep sense of community. While workshops, trainings and retreats focusing on one teacher, technique or philosophy had happened, Hoop Convergence provided a space for more than twenty teachers to come together in the spirit of community and sharing, for knowledge and connection, with a hope for abundance.
This May we will once again gather upon 350 beautiful acres to enjoy Organic gardens, forest, lake, cabins, wildlife and most importantly, to re-visit the community that has blossomed over the years on this land.
For six years, Hoop Convergence has strived to bring the absolute best in hoop dance workshops, forums and training. This year, for our seventh annual event, we will continue that tradition while enhancing the spiraling study with flow, circus and healing arts. In addition to diversified training in these movement arts, Hoop Convergence brings world-class performers for the showcases, live music and/or DJs for jams and other inspiring events. You’re guaranteed to leave with a full heart.
We invite you to share in this opportunity to re-create yourself in play and community during these 5 blissful days with us in North Carolina this May.
