Shelby Walton, 19 and a Freshman at San Francisco State University and has been “hooping” for about two months. “Hooping” is essentially the art of dancing while hula hooping. She first began while she was home for the winter break in Palos Verdes and saw a friend of hers hooping so she decided to try it. The hoop she uses now is actually her friend’s. Although she has had no formal training, Shelby has come up with many of her own moves by just messing around or by seeing other “hoopers” at different festivals and events in San Francisco.
