Tonight was amazing!!! 

Russell, Corey, and I went to the first meet of the year of Universal Flow ॐ. It was so inspiring to see how it has changed. There were loads of spinners out that I had never seen. Many new people who wanted to simply come and watch. I handed out tons of JaxFlow info to people and I hope they can come join our monthly flow family too :D

People from all the flow groups were out at the meet representing their corners of Jacksonville.  
Thomas Apollo LoRusso from Got Fire Entertainment was spinning staff all night so nice. Devin Scooter Reid from Fahrenheit 360 was killing it on the devil stick along with Corey's craziness. There were tons more people I only just met and it was so worth going. 

Because of this great time it got me thinking, "We should make calendar of all the monthly/weekly flow events and jams in Jacksonville!!!" So shortly we will have a calendar page up that will show the continual events like JaxFlow and Universal Flow so spinners can have a source for information the best spinning spots for each day of the week :D We will try to have a short description of each group or event as well.

Good night and thanks for the fun!!

This week has been good for JaxFlow.

Most of us are at F.L.A.M.E. Festival in Georgia spinning it up and selling contact staves and dream-catcher poi. The weather I hear is beautiful and the landscape even more so.

I stayed behind, however, to valiantly show off JaxFlow's splendor to the crowd at Suite Nightclub last night.  Sarah Ashlee Zippel came out to perform with me and we had a blast. The Little Star Center was holding a charity event for Autism and the number of people who came out was great. I wanted to thank them and Suite for having us out and giving us the chance to perform for them.  

Tonight's JaxFlow Meet is going to be small since most everyone is out. I am hosting a Spin Jam at 5 pm in Memorial Park so please do come out!

onight was the second anniversary of Rhythm and Flow in riverside and it was a blast. There were loads of people who came out to drum to their hearts content as well as spin poi, hoop and staff. I met people of all skill levels and from far off places. The peeps from Fire Magick came out again and blew out minds with a dragon staff made of axes. Danny came up from south Florida again as well. It was just so much fun and I was glad to see everyone there and teach all that I did. If you haven't been out yet, make sure you hit up one of their monthly meetups.

On to other things!!

JaxFlow is now in the main circle to help jump start the Flow Arts in Florida. Casandra Bambolê Tanenbaum is starting a project called Flow Arts Movement or FAM. This is an amazing step forward because what she wants to do is two things with it:

            1.) Make different programs certifying people to teach the various skill toy arts.

            2.) Make a push to bring the Flow Arts inside public schools. 

For the upcoming One Spark event where the FAM is going to be crowd fund raising, I am helping to coordinate where people from out of town will be staying. If anyone has room for flow spinny bodies and would like to help or participate in FAM let me know. The event will consist of many different workshops and performances by people from out of state and from in state. I only have a single futon and It might hold 2 people if they are small. If you want to help the Flow Arts community in Jacksonville and beyond, this is your chance.

To talk to me about any of this just email us: jaxflow@gmail.com

Thanks again for the great night,

Brian
