First Nations Hoop Dancer, Teddy Anderson, visited us this week to perform his unique and inspirational dance for 40 minutes followed by an opportunity for each class to learn part of the dance. At age 15, Teddy began his hoop dance training under the guidance of Scott Eagledog Ward, a Metis Ojibway seasoned in the art of the dance. Teddy  has performed all over the world having completed more than 1500 performances and dances with up to 30 hoops at one time. Different configurations of the hoops symbolize unity, fellowship and peace.  More information including a video of his danceabout Teddy Anderson can be found at his webpage: http://www.teddyanderson.com/the-hoop-dance
