Course overview and goals of the course:

Flow is a term to describe a moving meditation of manipulating props such as staffs, hoops, poi, juggling, and other tools. Revel in creativity as you learn about and practice prop techniques that improve dexterity and proprioception. Share the joy of movement and self-expression, and tap into your unlimited potential. The state of flow creates new pathways in the brains, and offers an alternative perspective on movement, inside the body as well as outside the body as you move through space. It is also an exciting way to gain fitness by increasing heart rate, agility, and flexibility. There is opportunity for a student showcase at the end of the semester!

Course objectives:

  1. Learn about the history of flow arts and apply the psychology of flow with props and in everyday movements.
  2. Practice flow technique and develop skill, agility, dexterity, and proprioception with props.
