FLOORWORK FOR FLOW ARTISTS
Olivia Al-Kimiya (Pyrodanza) is a traveler, researcher of truth, and explorer of the inner- and outer- world; traveling the world and exploring the soul.
Olivia dedicates her life to dance. Dance as a metaphor for life; she’s embodying and expressing her path of growth into the archetype of the warrior.
Graduating from the American Academy of dramatic arts of NY, Olivia integrates Yoga, Contemporary Dance (Floorwork) Somatics, and basic acrobatics into the art of contact staff manipulation & balancing. She’s mixing the ingredients of advanced tricks mastering, dance, and interpretation.
Her focus is to develop a unique personal flow that transcends technique and focuses on dancing as one with the prop, harmonizing with gravity and mixing strength, grace, presence, and versatility.
Follow her workshops ‘Floorwork for Flow Artists’, and learn to integrate movements on the floor in your spinning routine (applicable to many props).
See the video in the middle, below here, for an example of her workshops!
