Hoop Dance 101: Get Up and Hoop!

Children of all ages will have a chance to try out their hoop dancing skills with five-time World Champion hoop dancer Tony Duncan on Sunday, November 13 from 2 to 3 p.m. at Pueblo Grande Museum. Tony will begin by demonstrating some of the traditional shapes and animal forms used in a hoop dance before inviting children to join in the fun of learning how to do a hoop dance of their own.

Check out this video of Tony and some brave young souls at our last hoop dancing event!


As an additional treat, Duncan, an award-winning Native American flutist, will be joined by guitarist Darrin Yazzie for a musical performance from their recent album, Singing Lights. Violet Duncan, Tony’s wife, will round out the program by sharing her book, When We Dance. Children and adults will have a chance to chat with all the artists during the question and answer session following the presentations.

Hoop Dance 101, an accompanying program to the premiere exhibit One World, Many Voices: The Artistry of Canyon Records at Pueblo Grande Museum, is free with registration. As a Canyon Records artist, images of Tony Duncan and his fellow musicians are featured in the exhibit which is included with regular Museum admission. Reserve your seats for a chance to hoop dance with Tony Duncan by registering at pueblogrande.com as space is limited.
