Thank you Linwood E. Howe Elementary School for inviting us to do a morning of school assemblies for the 2nd year in a row for #DisabilityAwarenessMonth. We are infinitely different but can unite as one... You can achieve your dream if you put your mind to it... This assembly reminded us of why Infinite Flow exists - to influence the current and next generation. If you would like to have Infinite Flow come out to your child’s school for assemblies and workshops, please email InfiniteFlowDance@gmail.com
Big High Ten to Infinite Flow dancers Auti Angel, Shaheem Royal Sanchez, Piotr Iwanicki, Marisa Hamamoto for putting on a super awesome school show :)
