Michalla Moss shares that movement has always been an integral activity in their life. As a young child, she took various dance classes and felt a deep connection to music, movement, and prop manipulation. It first came to them as a tool to express and find joy. Michalla swiftly fell in love with the art of Single Hoop Manipulation. What she thought to be her forever-and-only- prop was just the beginning of a lifelong venture in Dance, Flow Arts (Prop manipulation), and Circus Arts!

Vertel Jackson has been a movement artist since birth. From jumping on couches to gaining the nickname “Rabbit,” to his imaginative soul; he has always preferred finding the endless possibilities of what his mind and others can collaboratively produce. He has been practicing flow arts since 2013 and uses it as a way to express himself and to work off daily frustrations and stress “adulting” has brought with it. Although flow arts performing is seen as more of a hobby than a profession he focuses on integrating more flow arts into his daily career as a Content Producer. He makes videos that focus on the arts and highlight diverse communities. Currently, he resides in Berlin getting established and tuning in to a new pace of life as an ex-pat.
