For the past two years I've been struggling to come up with a way to teach poi/dance integration on my YouTube Channel and I've finally struck upon a format that I like! Every month I'll be posting a new video blog covering a topic in flow arts and dance fusion--I'm hoping that by posting the way I'm learning myself that it'll help many of you find ways of merging the two together as well :)
The top 10 favorite poi spinners of 2016 video is out! This is the fifth year of this project and like every year, this one broke many of the rules I'd come to believe about how the vote count sorts out. First and most important (to me) is that this is the first year that two women have made the list! Ever since we had a list of 10 men I've badly wanted to see more women crack into the top 10 and this was the year I finally got my wish.
Available for the first time to the general public! If you've picked up many of the basics of poi and are looking to deepen your knowledge, this course will take you through crossers, isolations, hybrids, and so much more. This 11-part series will guide you from the world of beginner poi into intermediate spinning.
I did a video on Luminancer several months ago in my series on how to create light trails on your spinning footage, but they recently came out with an update so I wanted to do another video on what’s changed and what hasn’t.
Back in September, a gentleman named Johari Kazura from Starlight Academy in Singapore came through the Flow Space right after Burning Man just like I did. He had with him a gimbal-mounted camera rig and we spent an afternoon playing with it in the Flowspace.
I know it’s been a while since I’ve done a double staff video, but recently I had a Skype lesson with a double staff spinner who wanted to know all about 8-step CAPs and I realized that it’d make a great topic for a video! Specifically, we covered how you can create a variety of different 8-step CAPs with a very simple recipe.
2016 was my tenth Burning Man! I decided to commemorate the occasion by showing you guys just a little bit of the experience that I had out on Playa, including some great info on my camp, footage from Center Camp, the awesome fire circles that happened throughout the week at the sound camps, Burn Night, and much more!
Plus my favorite 2016 memory: flying above Black Rock City in a plane! :D
A little bit different a taste of flow for y’all--August’s flow session is with my double staves! I’m at Burning Man this week, but wanted to still give you guys a video to enjoy. Let me know if you guys like this one and want to see more double staff work on here!
I’ve done a lot of tracery work with doubles lately and wanted to do something different with this video, playing around with conserving direction and using simpler tricks.
