SignWriting List
August 27, 2019

Hello Suzanne and everyone on the SignWriting List!

It is great to hear from you again, Suzanne. Thank you for your message below, and for your work with SignWriting a decade ago. Thanks to you, for the first time, signs and phrases and songs were written in British Sign Language (BSL) in SignPuddle Online, and Dutch Sign Language too, and I remember you taught workshops in the UK and also had a SignWriting blog ... that was a significant contribution for many people who have been downloading and using your writing and also your SignWriting games - thank you!

So now you are writing Hoop Dancing with DanceWriting and SignWriting, and you call it Sutton HoopWriting? Wow... ;-)

Thank you that you are a pioneer once again - I know nothing about Hoop Dancing so you will need to tell us more about it.

Meanwhile, the PDF document, and the video, that you mention in your email were not attached to your message.

There should be no problem to send us a PDF to the SignWriting List, so please send it again. However, posting a video might be too big for the SignWriting List Listserve software so usually people post the video they want to share on YouTube or another server, and then post a link to the video for our SignWriting List readers to follow.

If you have no place to post your video, you and I can email privately to find a way for me to access the video and post it on our YouTube channel for you and then create a link for the SignWriting Lisst.

I look forward to seeing what HoopWriting looks like!

Val ;-)

Message from Suzanne posted on the SignWriting List, August 27, 2019:

Hi everyone,

I tried to post this on the Facebook group yesterday, but it wasn't really working, so I'll try it again this way :)

I hope you're all well, it has been quite a while! About ten years ago I used to do quite a bit of SignWriting for Dutch and British sign language. The last few years I haven't really been focussed on using sign language / SignWriting. However I am doing hoop dance (hula hoop) quite a bit and this made me realise how similar the two are: hand shapes, hand positions, movement paths, planes of movement... These are all very important in both sign language and hoop dance. So I thought I'd give Sutton HoopWriting a go! 

I've attached a pdf of a hoop sequence I wrote down using Signmaker. What do you think about it? Can you read it? (I've stolen some punctuation symbols to represent the hoop! And the movement arrows that symbolise the movement of the hoop have a little circle added at the tail.)

I've also attached a video of me performing the sequence twice. 

I actually found it quite hard to write the sequence down, but I think it can be very useful. And it will hopefully get easier if I try a bit more! Also I actually created the sequence by writing it down first, then checking if it would work with the hoop.

I know SignWriting started as dance writing, but are there still people today who use SignWriting to write down sports/dance movement?

Kind regards,
Suzanne Pach (from the Netherlands)
