Deanne the Hooper

Not only did Tokyo-based "hooper" Deanne introduce the art of hooping -- that's right folks, it's no longer about the "hula" anymore -- to a captivated crowd at PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 61, she capped her presentation with a brilliant display of her art for the audience. If you're new to hooping, than you'll find out all you need to know from Deanne's Hooplovers website -- she gives classes on top of performing regularly. For those in attendance, we were treated to a very clear approach to the topic: the presentation was built as a series of answers to FAQs. The photos of Deanne's performance come courtesy of Masao Tamaoki.
