#30daysofflow : Mission Complete

#30daysofflow : Mission Complete

We Did it! There are 237 videos on the #30dayflowchallenge hashtag and 305 videos on the #30daysofflow hashtag! Incredible work by everyone who got involved. Things I learned this challenge include: Having community support to keep you accountable makes a big difference for getting off your bum and just getting the work done. We all have dark days, sick days, grumpy days and harder days where things just don’t work out for our practice, but they often have their own break through moments and the practice itself helps you get through it. It’s really vulnerable to be posting so many videos of yourself online all the time. There was a lot of self judgement in all aspects of my work including the work itself (especially the contemporary dance/emotional clown work), the gym clothes I wear, the (lack of) make up, my background music choices and just the act of posting about myself every.single.day that feels really strange! (see the hashtag #flowspam). It’s good to see the group learning from each other. I would often try others tricks (most of which were not posted) and I would revisit old tricks I’d forgotten after watching others posting them. Seeing my work on video really helped me clean my lines, and see the differences between graceful and less graceful work and gave me a better idea what to include in my final show I connected through twitter to new people who are doing the #365daysofcircus challenge!! 365 days!!! Good work. Keep it up folks!! the #30dayabschallenge is way more difficult than the juggling challenge!!! WHO DOES 200 crunches & 120 sit ups... read more
Equality for Women in Juggling: Demographics

Equality for Women in Juggling: Demographics

Hello friendly jugglers, I’ve been counting the number of women on stage at various juggling festivals I have attended in 2015 and it confirms what I have been suspecting. Women are not found in equal numbers on Gala stages at juggling festivals, and more generally, are not as respected in the juggling community. (Except for the EJC Gala show – way to go EJC team!) This is happening in many fields across the world, and there is good research on gender demographics in those fields. Check out these mathematicians who created an article titled All Male Panels Don’t Just Happen That Way. But there is no demographic research in juggling yet. So, let’s start counting! I need your help. I need someone to email me the ratio of women to men on stages for every juggling festival this year. Info needed: # of women # of men Type of stage (renegade, open, Gala**) Name of Festival Country Type of festival (Juggling fest, Flow Festival, Passing convention, etc) and any other information you have about the festival that may influence demographics. I will be collecting these all year long. The more festivals we have the better our statistics will be at the end of the year! Then we can have a better picture of the demographics in the juggling world. please send it to juggleinfinity [at] gmail.com Thanks for you help in the inquiry about equality for women in juggling! ** I really would like to focus mostly on Gala stages (featured performers) to see who is held up as the leaders in our community. Gala stages are easily seen... read more

What People are Saying About Dawn

Since we met Dawn back in 2011, she has been a fundamental part of our planning and outreach. She is the best kind of advisor – someone who’s not afraid to tell you that you’re doing something terrible, when needed, but also who suggests positive solutions to problems you didn’t even know you had. We’ve spent three years getting better and better, and Dawn has played an important part in that. Nick Broad, founder

The Busking Project

Dawn Marie is an incredible instructor and coach. Her class was pack and she still managed to offer an amazing workshop with lots of personal attention. Her class was one of the highlights of the festival and I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a great coach. Carisa Hendrix, director of Prop Fest Alberta

Dawn is a professional, expert in her field of expertise who made the 2 hour workshop feel like a walk in the park. At the end, everyone felt that they accomplished what looked impossible at the beginning and felt the time just flew by. Joe Nifco
