Get to Know The Flow Zone

We’ve all seen those skillful ninjas who spin and juggle a dazzling display of LED lights or fire. Mostly known as flow artists, it almost seems inevitable that a community that embraces technology, self expression, meditation, and dance would become deeply intertwined with Burning Man and the Transformational Festival community.

Enchanted Forest is always striving to give you more sauciness, silliness, and sexyness and we are so thrilled to bring you a space to Black Oak Ranch that embodies all three of these, the Flow Zone is a space to learn from masters, teach new comers, and connect with your tribe.

By day, this space will host classes covering multiple styles, props, and skill levels. There will be many beginning level classes for those who want to try flowing for the first time, or those looking to pick up a new discipline. If you don’t own a prop yet, be sure to show up early and talk to the teacher, it’s very likely you’ll still be able to participate.

At night, the Zone will remain open, allowing you space to practice within earshot of the main stage. The Flow Zone will also feature vendors who will have plenty of options for all of you who discover new love or need an upgrade. Whether you’ve always admired prop manipulation and want to give it a try, or you’re looking for some extra room to get your flow on, the Flow Zone is for you!
