As humans living in time and space, we like to explore different ways of flowing and glowing with the world around us.  At festivals, concerts, and shows; it is a common occurrence to see people throwing and grooving their bodies to the music.  A lot of people actually choose to use items to dance and groove with, and to make their flow more interesting and personalized.  This kind of dancing with props such as glowing gloves or hula hoops is usually referred to as flow arts.  Flow arts can expand vastly from small to large in terms of what props people can use to help express their style of dance.  Each of them very unique!

As festival-goers, a lot of us are familiar with some of these, but there’s so many more and they’re all beautiful and mesmerizing in their own unique ways.  Have fun and explore all the different and fun ways you can FLOW!  These can all vary in so many ways too!  You can get each one of these in standard (no glow or iridescence), Glowing or LED, and Fire!  If you click on the name of the recommended companies to buy from, It will take you directly to their site so you can start your Flow Movement!

 Hula Hoops

Hula hooping is fairly common but has a lot of variations such as how many hoops you flow with.  Starting with just one is usually a good start though!  This flow usually involves a lot of dance and many people of all flow skill levels can use a hoop.  Hoops also come in all kinds of sizes, colors, materials, and prices!

Glow Gloves

Gloves are definitely a favorite among a lot of festival goers.  They are relatively easy to use and you can’t smack yourself in the face with them while practicing!  These also come in many variations in color and quality.
