Hello again everybody!

We are back with this week’s entry of the Flow Arts Institute’s Tutsday series!  This week we have Sassy Cassie from Atlanta, GA, teaching a recap on her workshop at FLAME 2014, How to Spin Fans Like Double Staves.

Let’s begin!

Cassie begins by demonstrating the orientation of the fans.   Instead of displaying the larger sides of the fans, you will want to position your fans in a line facing your audience.  This provides the basis for the visual mimicry of double staves.

Cassie demonstrates a number of different techniques the carry over from the realm of double staff.   Antispins, Isolations, and Extensions can make up a number of interesting hybrids.  Adding different timings and directions allows for a greater variety of moves.

Cassie ends by demonstrating a few of her other favorite fan techniques.

We hope that left you feeling inspired to push further in your respective artform.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]

  1. Just happened upon the Flow Arts site and found the fan tutorial with Sassie Cassie. I’m a newbie and have been just a spectator. I am really drawn to the fan movements and want to try. Where can I buy fans? And on Cassie’s tutorial Fans like Double Staves from FLAME 2014, who does the music on the video?
