Based out of Louisville, Ky, Katrina began her flow career in the magical world of Flow Camp 2012. With a background in dance and theatre, she was introduced to a hoop and had no idea the direction her life was about to take thanks to this beautiful art. Since then, she has expanded to multiple other props including poi, Fire eating, and more, and has made fans her priority. Her wonderful journey has allowed her to travel the US spreading this love of Flow arts by instructing and organizing many events.

Doodle

After his first exposure to the flow arts over eight years ago at a music festival in Ohio, Doodle knew he had found his path. He started down it with poi in hand and never looked back. Struggling to find support in his hometown, he fled to the city to further his dream of continuing his art and finding a community to share it with. Needless to say, that was just the beginning. Doodle’s dedication to and passion for the flow arts grew as he helped to launch and run a performance group, picking up a variety of new props along the way. After years of performing and spinning with his friends, he decided to start teaching flow arts as well. Eventually, Doodle’s inability to resist a challenge led him to fire fans. It turns out they were exactly what he needed as an expressive release for his analytically creative spinning style. Connecting with the Burning Man community inspired him to further focus on giving back to others through his art. He took a leap of faith and left his performance group. Fully dedicating himself to teaching and advancing the community that has helped him so much along his own path, Dood le now travels from coast to coast sharing with others what he has learned and learning from those he is sharing with.
