Xander Paris is a rope dartist, poi spinner, triple section staff wielding, nun-chuck ninja who is a community builder and teacher from San Francisco, currently based out of Portland, Oregon. Xander's life passion is martial flow and performance arts. He grew up involved in martial arts at a Muay Thai gym, took years of dance classes and theater which sparked his interest in movement, rhythm, and performance. After discovering the art-forms of flow and object manipulation he has dedicated time and energy into spreading the flow arts, and combining different elements of object manipulation with dance, martial arts, and movement. 

Discover his viewpoints on the difference between a life passion and life calling, hear his flow story, what inspires him to perform, and about the development of a new fire-dancing art of fire-on-sand-manipulation in this FINAL episode of Season 1 of the Art of Flow.
