In a world where we are consistently pressured into adapting to a role that makes us fit into society, many people struggle to find a balance between work and play. But don’t we only start to love living life when we find a reason to get out of bed in the morning, not because we have to, but because we want to? In this talk I’m going to share with you my biggest passion − the Hula Hoop.
Lisa Lottie was born in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, started hula hooping at 21, and has never “worked” a day in her life since. She began her career in a traditional circus in India, studied at the Brazilian National circus school in Rio de Janeiro and holds a degree in circus from London’s National Centre of Circus Arts. Having received millions of views and global praise for her award-winning YouTube videos, she continues to perform in circuses and on stages worldwide; on camera for film, TV and the Internet; and has no plans to ever break up with her great love affair with street performing.
