We, at the Flow Arts Institute (FAI), nominated instructors via committee from all of our festivals for Instructors of the Month for 2015. They received default nominations to participate in the instructor of the year contest. Many instructors who were nominated by the festivals had been Instructor’s of the Month. Instructors of the Month because they are outstanding instructors and push the boundaries of teaching and skill excellence.
