Please be safe during this winter storm! When the weather keeps us in doors, we can watch videos!! I love watching other types of flow arts; and seeing how I can integrate different infusions of each style into my own practice. Here is Marvin Ong, a multi-talented flow artist, I met at Wildfire this past summer. It’s really special to see people sharing their flow and passion. We are all on a journey and remember “there is never an if; it’s just a when”.
Hooping mission for the day:
Since most of you spin other types of object manipulation (poi, baton, staff, levitation stick) this one is for you to get play with and have fun! Have your object of choice ready along with your hoop and a timer. If you can, set your timer with minute intervals, put on a slow song, switch back and forth from hoop to object for 10 minutes. Start to see if you can find dance transitions when you are switching back and forth. Explore similar motions in both styles to see if you can explore unique movements. Pay attention to how each dance form we take can influence everything we do.
If hooping is your only flow art than you can change out the time to dancing without the hoop. Finding happiness with your fabulous form of movement (without the hoop) is a fantastic movement exploration to take on.
Enjoy and be safe!
