The Hoop Dance
The unity of humankind is reflected in this Dance. Employing 28 hoops, this dancer, Kevin Locke, describes the natural, visionary process of Life emerging from the darkness of Winter into the bright exuberance of Spring. One after another, images of renewed Creation appear as flowers, butterflies, stars, and the Moon and the Sun; while Eagle circles, calling forth the love, courage and intelligence of our hearts.
The hoops represent Unity, while the four colors of the hoops: black, red, yellow and white, represent the four human races, four directions, four seasons, four winds, and more. As the Dance concludes, all 28 hoops are interlocked in a spherical union illustrating the interdependence we all share and cannot truly live without.
