Each year, people reach out to me to let me know how much they LOVE having the opportunity to hoop in the parade and how they’ve made more connections in the community. I know that’s true for me! We’ve even had spinners come from surrounding states to be a part of the magic that we co-create together. And - each year our group gets a little bit bigger and brighter!
In years past, I have asked for a nominal participation fee to help offset our varying costs. (And for a couple of years I covered it myself, with the help of TOAD.) However, our group registration fees have gone up quite significantly this year.
Because of this, we are asking that everyone pitch in to help with a $25 participation fee. This will cover our registration and vehicle fees, and enable us to make a well-deserved contribution to our incredibly talented documentarian, Dave.
If you have yet to see Dave’s video of our happy, hoopy day at last year’s parade, do check it out! This day will live on forever because it has been commemorated so beautifully by him.
If you have been before, you already know: This is one of the most fun-filled, culturally robust community events New York has to offer! If this will be your first year, I look forward to sharing this incredible experience with you!
I can’t wait to hoop with you all and celebrate DANCE!Xo Amy P.S. If you can contribute more, please consider doing so. If you have concerns, feel free to reach out.
