Boston Flow – Intro to Hybrids
May 2, 2016 at 6:00 pm–7:30 pm
PLEASE NOTE: Due to rain, the location of this event has been changed to Curry Student Center, Northeastern University.
Join Boston Flow, Boston’s most inclusive spinning arts community, for a variety of workshops during ArtWeek Boston! This year we invite you to meet up with us around the city to learn how to dance with different flow props such as hula hoops, poi, and staff. Now you can finally learn how to impress your friends at the next festival you go to, or just pick up some new skills to practice and grow with! Prop manipulation can be a wonderful and therapeutic workout, especially because it is so easy and fun to pick up. We at Boston Flow can get you started on your spinning performance arts journey! Buy tickets for the event using the link below, or pay cash the day-of the workshop!
Poi refers to both a style of performing art and the equipment used for engaging in poi performance. As a performance art, poi involves swinging tethered weights through a variety of rhythmical and geometric patterns. JapanSkinny will be leading a poi workshop on hybrids: geometry on a wall plane, and tips on getting into them and out. No poi necessary. Meet by the Pavillion.
Steve Chinafat, aka JapanSkinny, started spinning poi two and a half years ago purely for the visual aspect, later coming to appreciate the health benefits as well. When he’s not spinning, you can usually find him at the piano, or practicing magic. Making people smile is something he enjoys INCREDIBLY, and events such as ArtWeek are a TERRIFIC place for that!
