About this Workshop

Nick loves flares! Flares can be beautiful and flashy on their own, but can also be used to wrap, unwrap, and generate dynamic transitions. In this workshop, we will cover spinning flares from the ground to dynamically enter static shapes and inversions. We will also look at continuous flares in the air, as well as wrapping and unwrapping the tail in a dynamic flare pathway. We will spin a lot!
