Hoop dancer Alley 'Oop

You probably remember the hula hoop. Maybe you even still have one. But, you probably can't do the sort of remarkable stunts with it that Allison Collins can. For "Alley 'Oop," as she calls herself on stage, hula hooping is a performance art. She's part of the Madskillz Circus Arts Festival going on in Vancouver right now. Alley stopped by North by Northwest earlier this week to talk with Margaret Gallagher about her unique brand of artistry. You can hear their conversation this Saturday after the 8:30 am news.
