This is a group dedicated to young adult flow artists; primarily hoopers but all types of flow artists are welcome! This includes poi, fans, staff, ribbons, and the like. We will ideally meet at least once per week and the goals of each gathering will be to practice, teach one another/learn new tricks, provide overall support to each other in our flow journeys, and, of course, to meet like-minded people and make friends! All skill/experience levels are welcome, including those who are just starting out!
This group is free of cost with a suggested (not required) donation of $2 per gathering, simply to help cover the costs of maintaining the group page. Down the road we may occasionally attend outings (flow and non-flow related) that could cost money (i.e. going to a bar, club, concert, etc.).
Gatherings will take place in public settings--typically in local parks weather permitting. Occasionally we may travel to the shore and do some beach flow. In the winter time or on rainy days if meetings become more regular we can utilize certain venues such as a local gym or The Dragon's Egg in Ledyard, CT. Most of these indoor venues will be very inexpensive or free.
In the beginning stages we will primarily be free-flowing and getting to know one another, but as time goes on the hope is that we will have organized warmups, lessons, themes, etc.
Music will usually be provided via a portable bluetooth speaker but if you have your own device feel free to bring that as well! Feel free to request songs, create a Spotify playlist, etc.
Please try to bring your own equipment as currently only a few spare hoops and one pair of ribbons are available for sharing!
Others may offer to share but there is no guarantee!
