Kelsey Lee

Founding President of the Board

Kelsey’s mantra is to change a life. In 2010, Kelsey taught herself how to hoop using a laptop and YouTube. Combined with her musical background as a classic pianist, movement arts served as a catalyst for many present day artistic projects. Kelsey enjoys connecting individuals with commons goals, and she founded SpinCo to connect with other hoopers in the Philly area.

Maurice (Reese) Crawley, also known as "Stoop Kid," has been practicing flow arts since January 2014. The passion and freedom found in the arts has taken him through many different forms of self-expression, but his love is for performance and giving back to the community. From volunteering at the American Youth Circus Organization (AYCO) in Portland, Maine, to video shoots in Birmingham, AL, to fire performances in San Francisco, CA; every endeavor receives all of his time and dedication.

Jessica Jessica2

Jessica Borden


Faerie extraordinaire and multi-medium artist from New Jersey, Jessica Borden works, creates, and expresses herself with her hands. Picking up double staff in 2009, she’s been twirling ever since, from the conclave of Burning Man regional festival Firefly to the runway of Diabolique to the stage of the TLA! Along the way, she learned fire breathing and has dabbled in palm torches, flow wand, and hooping. A dog groomer by trade, she’s also an exhibiting painter, sculptor, photographer, and ceramicist with a passion for written expression and her dog, Dane. She’s excited and eager to explore how she can contribute to and interact with the flow community at large!

Jennifer Riker


Positive energy and passion are two of Jennifer’s defining characteristics. She loves seeing people’s eyes light up with wonder and excitement as they witness the amazingly diverse people, props, and skills on display in the flow arts. Relatively new to flow arts herself, and with the desire to share her enthusiasm with the community while continuing to improve her art, she is delighted to have found SpinCo. Jennifer has co-presented Introduction to Poi workshops and finds joy in talking to and giving impromptu lessons to anyone and everyone who approaches her when she has her poi in-hand.

Ken Perna


Ken’s world changed the first time he saw fire poi over a decade ago. He immediately thought, “I have to learn that!” Since then, he’s been learning, spinning, and giving back to the community by leading Beginner Poi workshops and other fire manipulation classes at events in the Mid-Atlantic region. He’s found a way to blend his passion for fire with another of his artistic expressions, photography, and creates beautifully unique fire portraits with a technique he calls fire painting. In addition to poi, Ken has begun dabbling with rope dart and levi-wand. He is excited about working with the SpinCo Street Team to help expand the flow arts movements in this area.

Joanna Remmele


Since being introduced to the flow arts in 2013, Joanna enjoys expressing herself through poi and has an interest in adding staff and baton skills to her repertoire. Although she still considers herself a beginner, she has a passion for sharing her love of the flow arts and giving back to the community. In addition to co-presenting Beginner Poi workshops at various Mid-Atlantic area events, Joanna also teaches a “How to Make Your Own Sock Poi” DIY class to help ensure accessibility to all. In joining the SpinCo Street Team she is excited to explore opportunities to contribute to the greater Philadelphia community while continuing to grow within the flow arts!

Ellen 1 Ellen 2

Ellen Ethereal


Ellen has been hooping since 2016 and it has changed her life for the better in so many ways. She just recently started performing and teaching hoop workshops and absolutely loves it! She wants to introduce the joy of flow arts to as many people as possible. She is passionate about all types of movement medicine and is a certified yoga teacher. Spirituality is also a big part of her life; talk to her about astrology, tarot, crystals and all things metaphysical. She is so excited to be working with SpinCo to help spread the flow arts movement!

Kira Kira Alt

Kira Morrow


Kira ( @altkm ) has been a dabbler in flow arts for decades picking up various props, and never committing to any. Then around 2012 she started unicycling and that took, and then she started yoyo’ing in 2015 which became her main flow art. You can catch her competing at yoyo contests, and sharing/teaching yoyo tricks at flow/movement arts events. Even with yoyo’ing as her main flow art, expect to see her continue to dabble in multiple mediums. As she can be often found taking movements traditional in one flow art and transferring them to other flow art mediums.

Kerry has loved juggling for many years, mostly concentrating on club passing. In 2020, she discovered spinning poi. This enjoyable flow art was the perfect blend of focus and relaxation.
