With the monsoon and Covid here, this is also a time to explore hula hooping, pole dancing and belly dancing which are seeing more people take it up from their homes

Vasai-based Abigail Ambrose has been attracted to the hula hoop ever since she was a child but never saw her own potential till the Covid-19 pandemic turned things around for her. “When I started with the hula hoop, I used to do it only on my waist and perform during church feast, cultural programmes and local competitions. However, I was not serious at the time about it.” That was the past. Now, she has taken it a step further by combining her love for dancing and hula hooping to make videos of her performing to popular songs.
