Flow Arts & Burner Culture

I belong to a small subculture developing in America known most commonly as flow arts. Flow arts is basically dance with a prop. “Hooping and juggling are very well known within the realm of flow arts but they do not exist alone, poi, staff, batons, and so much more fill this world of flow arts.” (MasterOngPropShop, 2015) And it’s through the flow arts community I found out about Burning Man. 788 more words

What would make me happy about church.
