Just because it's winter (sort of) doesn't mean it's not hula-hooping season in Asheville. Melanie MacNeil of Asheville Hoops announces two fun-filled hooping events (and even if you can't keep a hoop airborne, you can still get in on these). First, The Hooper's Ball (a benefit for Leaf in the Schools and Streets) takes place Saturday, Feb. 18, 6-10 p.m. at the Montford Community Center. The gala includes music, hoops, raffle, photo booth, a costume contest and performances; tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for students and $5 for children. Then, on Thursday, Feb. 23, 67-minute documentary The Hooping Life screens at Asheville Pizza and Brewing Company. 9:30 p.m., $10. http://ashevillehoops.com.
