q & a
Hoops, Fire fans, poi
I’m passionate about the art. I love being able to create visuals and shapes with these inanimate objects. I never thought I would be so in love with geometry but here we are.
My brain likes to merge ideas that I have learned or seen. I have a thing for tech/geometry but lately I’ve been remembering that I have a ton of random experiences with different styles of dance so I’ve been incorporating more dance. Also I have been a musician since I can remember so musicality is a big thing in my flow as well.
I love practicing at the comfort of my home
I picked up a hoop about 4 years ago after meeting a girl who had a smart hoop. As a kid I knew how to hoop around the waist but didn’t know there was so much more you can do with a hoop. I started out hooping once or twice a week but the more time I spent, the more I fell in love. Now I pick up my hoops constantly without even thinking about it.
Being a part of the flow community has helped me shape my life and inspired me to start creating art. Flow arts came to me during a time where I felt lost and unsure of what I wanted to do with my life. For that, I’m so grateful. I think that the flow community has already made such an impact on many people but, we all have to make an effort to lead with example as the community grows. Show love spread love. Be kind. Be honest.
