Folding Fans with Dan
In this workshop we will cover the fundamentals of fan manipulation, starting with open/close techniques, and ending with throws. Special attention will be paid to developing ambidexterity and conscious/deliberate body geometry.Fans will be provided for the workshop, and should also be available for purchase.
Fascinated by the martial arts from a young age, FloWarrior has always appreciated their merit as a meditative form of dance and self-expression, rather than a means of fighting.
Soon after he began to spin staff in 2004 at Shambhala music festival, he was introduced to the wonderfully unique culture and community of the flow-arts.
Discovering one of his passions, he has since dedicated himself to experiencing and developing the global spinning community.
He is the founder of Sound & Motion, a University of Alberta club dedicated to prop manipulation, and has taught at such amazing local events as Spin Milk, Light & Motion, and Spin out.
Branching out to just about anything he can get his hands on, he now specializes in sabres, fans, and buugeng as he seeks to establish himself as one of Edmonton’s top fire performers.
“My goal is to impart as much inspirational and theoretical knowledge as I can. Such that rather than having an hour of technique to practice/drill, you will have an hour of material laced with ideas for development, that can serve as the basis for years of exploration.” – Dan
