Hoop Dancing (Episode 6): Host Steve Sxwithul'txw tries his hand (and the rest of his body) at Hoop Dancing - a sport (and an incredibly difficult one) that requires dexterity, balance, rhythm, endurance, and multitasking! Champion Gary Abbott and his son show Steve, hoop by hoop, how to build a complex dance routine that not only requires precision but has to tell a story as well. Some hoop dancers can dance with over 24 hoops at a time. The question is, can Steve?
Filmmaker Bio: Steve Sxwithul’txw is a proud member of the Penelakut Tribe located just off Vancouver Island. Steve is passionate about storytelling and highlighting Indigenous peoples in his craft.
