Arts in the Heart 2015: Hoop Takeover

Hoop dancers once again made a strong showing at Arts in the Heart of Augusta Festival! With four performance spots dedicated to flow arts- The Augusta Fire Collective, Augusta Flow Artists, Eastwind Under Flame, and the Augusta Hoopers, plus many more dance groups that welcomed hoopers and even an appearance or two from Lunatrix Arts from Columbia, SC, this year was one of the best for hoopers at the annual festival. I can't wait until next year!
