_The HoopPath is a hoopdance curriculum founded by master hooper Jonathan Baxter. The HoopPath method stands out in this new, dynamic movement modality as a unique blend of rigorous technique and deep introspection. Bax’s early years practicing alone and blindfolded in his backyard in Carrboro, NC, gave rise to a broad range of highly nuanced technical insights, as well as a deep and real connection to the transformative potential the hoop’s playful form disguises.

Check out an earlier collaboration between Jaguar Mary and Baxter below in the video, Emerge or Die, in which Baxter discusses the imperative of practice and self-development in relationship to hooping.
