Me under a black light with body painting

Flow and Glow

Last Friday night was a fun night.  The Circus School of Lancaster hosted and Open Flow night featuring the DJ duo Noite and body painting by Innovative Skin Body Art (look at this one at home), who did my awesome cyberpunk arms featured in the photo above.

The evening started off with some yoga.  Me, being in a knee brace right now, wasn’t able to do much of it, but it was cool to see people stretch and move under black lights.  Next, came the fire spinners.

Granted, I don’t spin fire, and have little desire to do so, but I sure love watching it!  I especially enjoy the woosh woosh sound of fire poi.  I got some photos of the action.


Neat, huh?

After the fire fun had ended, we all went back inside for music by Noite and some dancing.  What I mean by dancing, is that you signed up and you had the floor for how ever long as you’d like.  People did dancing, poi, acroyoga, and other flow props.  Yes, I did take my LED hoop, and, yes, I did a very chill and stationary hoop dance.  It was fun!

The Circus School of Lancaster is planning on doing events like this the third Friday of every month.  Like them on Facebook to get in on the next flow night and see what other cool events they are having.



Fire and Flow

On Saturday evening, my husband Sam and I attended a bonfire that some friends of ours were having that included some flow, fire, music, and sky gazing.  I did take some hoops and did some hooping myself before it got too dark.

Two of the guys, Sterling and Chris, along with Amy, did a little fire prop flow.  I love the look of fire prop flow and the whooshing sound it makes, but I’m actually scared to try it myself.  I was more than happy to take some photos, though!  Here are a few of them.

Very cool stuff!  If you want to see more, head on over to my Flickr album of photos of the evening’s festivities.

Sam and I were there WAY after our bedtime, and it was well worth it.  We had a great time!
