LISTEN TO THE Keynote Speakers

April Jennifer Choi

Keynote Speaker

This Keynote addresses some of the most interesting concepts that repeatedly come up when a performers studies the effects of insight and self-awareness. It covers many benefits of being insightful as well as some of the down-falls when improperly used. 

Diving into the science and psychology of performing in all aspects, this speech hopes to leave the audience with a cornucopia of inspiration, useful information, and hopefully a few insights for themselves.

Anita DeCastro

Keynote Speaker

Whether you’re a performer, a community leader, or a small business owner, you can’t avoid criticism. And you shouldn’t want to! 

Gain insight into how to lead with a solution driven attitude and learn how to turn even the harshest criticism into a positive opportunity for growth. 

Mervyn Alphonse

Keynote Speaker

Join us for a Sound Bath to start your weekend off right immediately following opening circle Friday.

LEARN FROM THE Instructors

Acro & Yoga Team

Adam Ploshay

Acro & Yoga Team

Learn the “Break Dancer” acro yoga washing macine, with options to remix some of its moves for some make-your-own machine fun! Recommended minimum prerequisites: Couch and/or Vishnu’s Couch.

Explore the 4-Step family of acro yoga “washing machines,” which offers a range of variations, from a version accessible to be your first machine — all the way up to very challenging versions, and everything in between! Recommended minimum prerequisites: Star

The first portion of the workshop will consist of a more traditional yoga class, hitting on skills that help build toward a handstand practice. The second portion will focus on working on the pyramid of skills toward handstands, with everyone choosing their own level of practice, and working in partnerships so that we can spot each other.

Taking moves from gymnastics, acrobatics, parkour, and stunt work, this workshop will cover how to fall down, forwards, backwards, and sideways — both in *planned* scenarios (for performance!), and *unplanned* scenarios (just trying to not get hurt)! Learning to fall can help make your acrobatic and aerial practice less risky and more sustainable — *and* more effective, by enabling you to feel more courageous trying new things where you might fall out.

Discussion & Social Circus Team

Kali the Courageous

Discussion & Social Circus Team

Within this community of flow/movement/performance artist, we use our physical forms to help us display our art form. By means of dance, makeup, costuming, and otherwise expression, we are essentially exposing our inner selves to the outside world. 

In this workshop, we will be openly discussing how to communicate consent, AND ways to translate it from others. Understanding the difference between a “yes” and a “no” and bridging the distance between the two will open possibilities for setting personal boundaries and respecting those of others.

Pauly

Discussion & Social Circus Team

In this workshop, discussion prompts will task participants with unpacking the notion of gender and our communal relationship with gender.

Further, participants will be guided through exercises that frame gender as directional flows of energy, challenging one’s relationship with movement itself. These exercises will utilize movement to engage one’s ability to distinguish in from out, pull from push, yin from yang, feminine from masculine.

The primary goal for this workshop is for participants to walk away with new ideas that can facilitate growth in any mode of dance or prop spinning. This workshop is welcome to all, and all perspectives are celebrated; that being said, no hateful language will be tolerated.

In this workshop, we will be openly discussing how to communicate consent, AND ways to translate it from others. Understanding the difference between a “yes” and a “no” and bridging the distance between the two will open possibilities for setting personal boundaries and respecting those of others.

On-the-spot mini workshops offered to the general public that come to attend the Showcase. Free mini workshops with leviwand, poi, and (possibly) flowerstix in the vending area near the Raintree Roots Booth. Presenting the circus arts as accessible to everyone!

April Jennifer Choi

Social Circus Team

In this class, we will be building the foundations of a business as a performance artist or someone trying to make money in the flow arts.

We will cover the outline of creating and running a business with the same skeleton used for business degrees.

We’ll briefly go over categories from Marketing, Advertising, Promotions, Networking, Finances, Budgeting, Cash Flow, Production, Performance, Market Research, Operations, Logistics, Business Tactics, Time Management, Negotiation, and Legal Matters, getting you ready for the business world of flow arts.

Marketing is one of the biggest influences in the success of Flow Artists and Performers.

We will cover marketing for the street, ambient, corporate, stage, and TV gigs. How to use Social Media, Search Engine Optimization, Analytics, Promo Kits, Branding, Networking, and other Marketing tools to boost your visibility so you can improve your gigs, engagement, and prices.

Get some of the top Marketing Strategies and Secrets that have taken some flow artists from an unknown backyard spinner to having 10k+ followers and major TV contracts.

So you are now a performer, but you’re not doing quite as well as you hoped.

Come to this class and we will give you the information to increase your income so you can get better-paying gigs and negotiate better rates. We’ll give you some of the business secrets like the ‘magic email’ (to get clients to respond), the ‘black swan’ (negotiation tactic to double your income), and ways to get those big gigs, sponsorships, and TV spotlights that no one else can get.

From street, to part-time, to full-time performing, you’ll have the tips and tools to tackle taxes, tacky tactics, and triumph in the performing arts.

Once you get your business up and running, you’ll need a way to keep it running at top speed.

You’ll need faster ways to respond to more and more inquiries and ways to save time keeping up with all the clients. This is the class that will take your performing business and push it to it maximum capabilities.

We will cover creating client lists, online and offline documents storage, ways of making quoting, pricing, performance, finance, choreography, collaboration, application and other project planning documents, spreadsheets and tools to reduce the amount of paperwork and increase the percentage of your time doing the fun stuff.

Hoop Team

Katatonic

Hoop Team

Learn the foundational isolation techniques including one-handed, two-handed, ghosting, and cat-eye isolations. This class is for hoopers looking to start their isolation journey and/or brush up on the basics.

Take your isolations to the next level with plane changes, breaks, and more! This class is designed for the hooper looking to up their iso game.

Walk away with pre-designed combinations as well as the knowledge to cultivate this creative process in your personal practice. This class will cover transitions from isolations into other types of movement.

Reciprocator

Hoop Team

In this course we will be going over a multitude of iso variations (where one or more hoop is isolating in conjunction with another) and how to transition in and out of each. Tips on how to clean up your flow included. Each student will walk away learning a small choreographed piece.

In this course we will briefly go over the 9-square theory and how that is applied to a 3-dimensional plane. Students will learn how to make almost any trick (such as a split/opp extension or an antispin vs extension) 3-dimensional.

Students will be challenged to be creative and find a way to make something they already know 3-dimensional. Each student will learn a short choreographed piece.

In this course the II (or double staff) relation will be introduced (where both hoops make a straight line and are generally folded subsequently to make flowers).

We will work our way up to quarter-timed 3-dimensional folds. Each student will learn a short choreographed piece.

Applying some knowledge acquired in courses prior to this one, students will learn how to navigate quad hoops on a 3-dimensional plane. This course puts quite a strain on the wrists and requires a bit of endurance.

We will begin with some wrist exercises and then will learn how to use the hoops in an ocho box grip. We will proceed into a double ocho box grip and explore this shape together.

From there each movement gains entrance to another, and by the end of the course students should have complete understanding of navigation. If time allows, each student will learn a short choreographed piece.

That Hoop Guy

Hoop Team

***No prerequisites required, all kinds of prop-manipulators encouraged***

In this class we will learn how to do a super-duper clean, basic chest roll. The focus is not on how many different kinds or variations, but how to have a perfectly controlled chest roll that has contact from finger to finger.

Then, we will focus on variations. Mike has been doing chest rolls for about 6 years now, and it has been one of the most important moves in his practice. This move can truly show you that you are capable of anything, and that practice and dedication are worth it.

If you have ever thought that you cannot do a chest roll with a hoop, PLEASE COME TO THIS CLASS!!!

Mike has been obsessed with hoop balance for the last 3 years, and this class is an opportunity to share all he’s learned.

Designed to give beginners the basic exercises to practice, and to give experienced balancers new ideas, this balance class is great for all levels. Even if you don’t use hula hoops, hoop balance has no prerequisites, so please join us.

We will be learning techniques from the hand and finger-tip balances to the butterfly and face balance.

If you seek calmness mixed with constant concentration in your practice, come balance some hoops with us!

**Please only attend if you can perform a chest/back roll with full contact from hand to hand with relative ease**
 
Chest rolls are Mike’s favorite hoop move, and this class will explore what possibilities lie beyond the basics. Starting with getting our chest roll as slow as possible, we will move into such moves as “chest roll to finger-tip / hand balance,” “turning rolls,” “forearm to body roll,” “chest roll neck wrap,” “chest roll to face balance,” and “body roll breaks,” to name a few.
 
If you’ve ever wondered what’s possible now that you’ve got your chest roll on lock down, this is the class for you.

This class is a discussion- and exercise-based class designed for experienced teachers and novices.

Mike has over 7 years of hoop teaching experience and has taught at over 45 flow-related events. In this class, Mike will discuss his strategies for teaching as well as lead group exercises to explore how each individual person learns, and how to teach them.

We will also be discussing techniques for teaching to different class sizes, writing/planning out a class with realistic expectations, connecting with your students, time management, professionalism, and confidence issues. Let’s learn about learning!

 — Bring Your Props —

Dancing and musicality have become an integral part of Flow Arts performance, personal style, and self-expression over the past couple of years.

Mike has managed, with no proper training, to learn how to move to music in interesting ways that onlookers seem to enjoy. In this workshop he will teach the basic concepts connected with the way that he expresses himself with his prop to music.

Beat dissection, tempo changes, timing, space, and energy will be explored through listening and dancing to many types of music. Come dance with Mike, and don’t worry, bring your prop too, please.

This is an all-levels burlesque class focused on the most important prop we have: our bodies!

The course will focus on intentional movement, taking time for musicality, and commanding attention.

Learn to add some peel to your appeal and some saunter to your swagger. Even if you do not intend to perform burlesque, this class is guaranteed to be crazy fun, body positive, and full of booty shaking.

Please wear clothing comfortable for dance. Heels are great fun to dance in but by no means required.

Demonstration of movement will be provided in a chair as well to accommodate various abilities.

If you need a chair or other assistance to make this class more accessible for you, please contact matchstickmerryweather@gmail.com before the start of class.

Have you ever wanted to take your skills to the stage, but you aren’t sure how to captivate the audience?

Stage presence is about more than just performing a skill with precision; it’s about connecting with the audience.

In this class we will cover the following themes:

1. Choosing a character for your act: Who are you, for this 5 minutes?

2. Research: Do you REALLY represent the part?

3. LOOK UP: Eye contact and facial expression

4. Be yourself, just not on stage: If you don’t feel weird, it probably looks boring.

5. Brand that booty!: How to take your overall “character persona” beyond the stage to build your brand as a performer

Squirrelly

Dance Team

This workshop is essentially a collaborative art experiment using LEDs and long exposure.

We’ll play with layering patterns, silhouettes, and whatever glowing objects we have available to us!

Feel free to bring your camera if you’ve got one! (All media created will be put in a Google Drive for free sharing/use)

Poi Team

Danny Rose

Poi Team

The baseline mechanics for spinning 2 poi in 1 hand. The different modes for spinning, how timing and direction work, and drills to build control.

Advanced tricks to take your 2P1H to the next level.

Ryan Dushwam

Poi Team

First, we will learn an injury-prevention, poi-focused warm-up made with the help of a Physical Therapist. This warm-up will be done each day.

Then, we will practice plane control, walking, and “together-same” spinning. Using that spinning, we will learn reels, hip reels, shoulder reels and then chase the sun.

Each of the tricks in this class and the following will be followed up with variations involving walking, turning and chaine-turns.

By using tai-chi-type movements, we will break down 2-beat and 3-beat weaves before doing them with poi.

By learning it this way, students will be familiar with a number of ways of performing these weaves stylistically as well as with walking and turning.

Additionally, students will become familiar with “split-same” spinning, and we will revisit some of the reels from the previous class.

By the end of the class, students will have all of the components to do a 2x2x2x2 fountain.

The VTG, or Vulcan Tech Gospel, is a framework for understanding how two objects move through space.

We will specifically focus on practicing the four timing and direction combinations, how to transition between them and how to perform extensions. We will learn a sequence of transitions from each timing and direction while performing extensions and learn to do each while walking and turning.

Lastly, students will be left with the tools they need to build 40 flower patterns using timing and direction of the hands, timing and direction of the props combined with an understanding of inspin and antispin.

Soy Sauce & Seasoned Salt

Poi Team

Students will learn how to do 3-beat “reel weaves,” 4-petal inspin flowers with a partner, 4-beat weaves at two points and 3-beat weaves in chest-to-chest orientation.

We will teach partner 4-beats first, because they are extremely accessible.

Juggling Team

Lee Mai

Propfessor

Juggle Team

This will be a basic introduction to 3-ball juggling. No previous experience is necessary, and balls will be provided, though the student should feel free to bring their own.

It will cover the basic cascade and, time permitting, look at some basic tricks, as well as an introduction to 4-ball juggling.

Prerequisite: Solid 3-object cascade for 3-object tricks, solid 4-object fountain for 4-object tricks.

Workshop will explore some of the basic throw and catch variations, leading to student understanding not just of different tricks, but of how to put sequences together themselves.

Focus will be on balls, but all props welcome.

Club passing is one of the most entertaining and social forms of juggling.

This workshop will start from the ground up, teaching the student to develop accurate passing, how to catch a partner’s pass, and communication between jugglers.

This workshop will introduce the student to passing with both the left and right hand. While there are an infinite number of patterns and combinations of passing one can do simply with right-handed passing, learning to pass with both hands opens an entirely new dimension to passing and in many ways balances the juggler’s skill.

This class will work on the basic “3-count” or “waltz” pattern before moving onto other variations.

Jay Jay

In this beginner class, participants will learn many basic techniques. We will first discuss a brief history regarding the story of nunchaku while also covering its present and future.

Continuing on, participants shall learn much of the terminology used in nunchaku.

We will then cover our fundamental basics such as grips, stances, weaves, spins, passes, and transitions, which will lead into combination building while developing coordination and timing.

*If you are fairly new or completely unfamiliar with nunchaku, then start with this class. Recommend for all newcomers*

Students shall now learn more intermediate techniques that will supplement the basics learned from the 101 class.

In this class participants shall be focusing on different patterns, timing, direction, hand-roll drills, digit-rolls, tosses, breaks, linking, and skill-drill focused exercises that help develop higher dexterity for creating personal style.

*Recommended for anyone with basic nunchaku understanding looking to build new patterns and combinations*

In this advanced class, participants will take all they have learned from the previous two classes and structure complex combinations which link together a series of grip changes, stance movement, body weaves, and toss patterns.

We shall then move into 2:1 grip patterns, toss-switch juggle drills, and contact nunchaku.

Magpie

Sticks Team

A fantastic concept for buuginners and buugengsters alike, by honing in on this simple technique, one can unlock many levels of buugeng flow.

For the buuginner, this concept provides a solid building block for skill development, while for the seasoned buugengster, focusing on following the curve can lead to a myriad of new moves and discoveries.

This workshop will introduce the concept and then guide participants through the staggering amount of options that can come from following the curve.

A whole world of interesting buugeng moves are waiting to be discovered through the exploration of tip led movements.

After exploring curve led concepts in the previous class, participants will now discover many exciting variants by simply flipping the script and leading from the tip.

This class is ideal for buuginner to buugengster as a number of concepts that can lead to further exploration will be taught.

Now that we have learned a wide variety of buugeng skills, we will combine them into a movement combination utilizing all the concepts introduced in the previous workshops.

The resulting buugeng dance mediation will allow us to put buugeng movements into combination and drill our skills at the same time.

Matt Ruffner (Paw Print Props) & Dylan Rodriguez

We will start by pairing up anyone who doesn’t have a partner, and going over how both people should be standing to get started.

We will cover steals, partner folding, tosses, and other fun manipulations that two people can do in tandem, as well as some fun games to play with a partner.

Dylan or I will make a point to get with everyone at some point so that that can get the feel of the movements with somebody who is familiar with them.

Extra staves will be available for anyone needing them.
