Blues Instructor Bio
Flouer is a full time dance instructor based out of New York City, though she can often be found galavanting about the world spreading her love of the blues. With over 20 years of training in various forms of partner dance, having performed with modern dance companies and competed in ice skating throughout Europe, North and South America, and acquiring her MFA in Dance; Flouer presents a very contextual, holistic approach to Blues. In her classes this often translates into encouraging individual artistry while paying close attention to connection, technique, and historical references. Dance classes are about people- they should be interactive, interesting, and FUN! Flouer is deeply dedicated to furthering the art of Blues dancing, and believes that people physically moving and learning together can lead to powerful experiences.http://www.flouerdances.com

Blues DJ Bio
Fusion DJ Bio
“Comfort, Contrast & Texture” is Flouer’s mantra while DJing for a room full of Fusion dancers. With a background in so many solo & partner dance styles, Flouer sprinkles a little sas into the room with everything from Pop & R&B, to World Music & Classical. The dance floor is her tapestry as she spins rich, colorful portraits full of creativity. In her world, she seeks to lull you with the sweet sounds of familiar rhythms- then skyrocket you into starry realms, far past where you ever thought music could take you. Dance is your playground, music is your jungle gym. http://FlouerDances.com
