Krisstina Hawks – Ninja Pyrate
Taught at: FLAME, Kinetic Fire, Fahrenheit
What’s your secret power?
I can teach people how to identify their own glitch points, breaking moves into sections for faster progress. No one is immune to my powers! Want to learn 15 minute fishtails? Come look at my diagram. Science for the win!
When you aren’t a flow super hero, what is your Clark Kent alias?
I am the Cofounder of Ninja Pyrate (fire and glow props) as well as The Floasis Brooklyn, and soon to be The Floasis Atlanta.
What are your main classes?
- “Contact Staff FUNdamentals” – 4 half hour blocks that teach a horizontal steve (prepped for the prayer transfer), a halo (wrist-shoulder-shoulder-wrist), a reverse fishtail, and an angel roll.
- “Getting Down, Footloose and Ground” – contact staff – class switches between standing work using foot locks, and ground work coming from a breakdancing background.
- “Intro to Dragon Staff” – The first 20 minutes teaches you the chi roll, but the last 40 work on translating contact staff moves to dragon, focusing on the application of duck-outs.
Additional Teaching: Flow Camp, Flowida, FlowStorm, Texas Flow Fest, Eflowlution, Wildfire, Mountain Flow Fest, MoFlow, Flow Down, PlayThink and Earth Dance.
We believe in providing all sorts of educational content, and film tutorials of others as well as prop making DIY videos. It was an honor just to be nominated, and all that jazz.
