Maurice (Reese) Crawley has been practicing circus and 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. From volunteering at the American Youth Circus Organization (AYCO) in Portland, Maine, to video shoots in Birmingham, AL, to fire performances for 80,000 attendees at Burning Man, every endeavor receives all of his time and dedication. Most recent achievements include SpinCo’s Social Engagement Chair, Bangarang shows, PEX performances, and festivals all around the country. Reese looks forward to bringing that same energy to you.

Living on the Grid – with Double Staff
Prop: Two short props. Works best with stick but most props will work for this class.
I have been performing with double staff for about 2 years now and one of the most influential lessons I have learned so far was grid tracing. When a performer places themselves in the center of a 9 square grid, almost infinite combinations of techniques are unlocked for them. In this class, we will review timing/direction, isolations, anti-spins and hybrids each across the varying sides and levels of a grid.
