The SpinCo meetup is designed to bring together folks in the Philadelphia area interested in the Flow Arts and Circus Arts so they can learn and train together in a safe & supportive environment. SpinCo was created by flow artists who were frustrated with the lack of available space to learn and practice in. We started in a public warehouse space in South Philadelphia. Now, we offer classes, spin jams, and workshops across the city and surrounding regions at various studios and spaces.
What is "Flow Arts"?
Our organization defines Flow Arts as any physical activity which blends play, exercise, and creativity with the involvement of an object or prop. To be in "flow" means you are completely immersed in the activity at hand. There are many benefits to getting involved in the Flow Arts, the primary being getting complete exposure to a creative and low-stress environment that is conducive to learning and active participation.
Some examples of Flow Arts are: Hula Hoop Dance, Contact/Martial Art Staff, Poi, Juggling, Aerial Acrobatics, Fan Dancing, and many more!
What Can I Expect Out of This Meetup?
SpinCo values accessibility and affordability when it comes to creating flow arts events. We believe the entire community should be exposed to this art form, and try to create experiences in various neighborhoods and at different price ranges to meet the needs of every type of participant.
