Who We Are

Meet our awesome volunteer members!

Kelsey Profile Pic Kelsey Hover Pic

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; she fire dances in productions like The Ghostly Circus while organizes and promotes festivals like Return To Roots Gathering and Fahrenheit Flow Arts. Kelsey enjoys connecting individuals with commons goals. She practices this daily as an advertising professional and data consultant at RentPath, designing and scheduling marketing campaigns that help businesses grow. She finds serenity from her fast paced city life where she grew up, an old farm house and acres full of adventure.

Hannah Bio Hannah Alt

Hannah Pinkos

Director of Operations

As director of operations, Hannah is responsible for making sure nothing falls through the cracks when planning SpinCo events and workshops.  Hannah has been practicing fire and flow arts since 2012 after a friend invited her to attend the Wildfire Retreat.  However, she also was a also member of the colorguard in high school, so prop manipulation was something with which she was already familiar.  She started with staff spinning, but began hooping in 2014 and that is now her prop of choice.  By day, Hannah is a software developer and works on a team that makes an interactive 3D globe that runs in a web browser.  She has a Bachelor in Computer Science from Drexel University and a Master in Computer Science from Georgia Tech.  After work, Hannah enjoys performing and teaching hoop dance workshops around the Philadelphia area.

Jessica Jessica2

Jessica Borden

Volunteer

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

Volunteer

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

Volunteer

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.

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.

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

Volunteer

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

Volunteer

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.

Curran Smith

Volunteer

Curran Smith you could say has a burning passion for the flowarts. His journey began as a New Years resolution; teaching himself the art of pen spinning as a way to channel fidget energy; this talent would eventually blossom into the multi prop performance artist he is today. Using his education of Industrial Design, he crafts his props for practice and performance. Now a teacher (but always a student), Curran seeks to share the joy that flowarts have brought him.
