About DrexFactor Poi

Who am I?

Several years ago, my life was changed forever when I experienced fire dancing for the first time at Burning Man. I endeavored to learn the art and channeled my heart and soul into it. To give myself a regular goal to shoot for, I started uploading weekly videos to my YouTube channel showcasing what I'd learned every week. These videos quickly took on a life of their own and I got unprecedented opportunities to travel, teach, and perform. I've grown from a hobbyist to an educator in this art that I love and have spent a huge portion of the past seven years spreading that love around the globe.

What are the Flow Arts?

The Flow Arts are a collection of movement arts that include elements of circus, dance, martial arts, sports, and meditation to create a unique and rapidly growing artform. Usually, this consists of learning how to manipulate one more more props such as Maori poi, hula hoops, staves, juggling clubs, or many more in an aesthetically pleasing way. Practicing this art frequently has meditative benefits for participants and for many the goal of this practice is to attain a state of "flow" in which movement becomes effortless and unconsciously guided. Even if flow isn't your goal, however, spinning props is great fun and a wonderful form of exercise!

What is my Goal?

The Flow Arts is an amazing community for self-empowerment and fulfillment, but our resources haven't kept pace with our meteoric growth in the past few years. We have a wonderfully diverse and passionate group of people to draw on, but frequently the resources they have to draw upon are scattered and incomplete. Over the past 7 years I've learned a lot about educating people on how to spin their props but that only scratches the surface of what we need as flow artists to realize our goals. I want to take knowledge that has been accrued within the community and make it more broadly available to the wider world.

I have viewers in countries and places that I'll never be able to visit myself. I'd like to give them the tools that they need to be able to select which tools they want to spin, meet other individuals that share their passion, how to spin safely, learn to dance with their prop, and many many other topics. I want my channel to become an online knowledge base for the Flow Arts world. A place where people come to in order to get the answer to common questions. Help me get there by supporting this effort here on Patreon!

I make some equipment upgrades! Ideally I'd like to add a 4K video camera to my toolbox as well as a DSLR-compatible gimbal and a better shotgun mic. Can you guys help me get there?
