Grace Kalinosky is 25 years old from Litchfield, CT. She graduated in 2013 from American University in Washington, DC and received her degree in business, specializing in marketing and entrepreneurship. Trained as a child in ballet and figure skating, Grace first picked up a hoop at 20. Her interest in flow arts was piqued at a music festival, where she was entranced by the hoopdancers and poi spinners there. Once home, she promptly read as much as she could about the different types and sizes of hoops and purchased one of her very own. From there, Grace’s background and love of dance was born anew with the presence of this partner. In the winter of 2010, she dedicated herself to the art form wholeheartedly. Since then, she has immersed herself in wide variety of spinning arts and Fractal Phoenix was born. While mostly self-taught, she has been fortunate to attend many workshops and fire/flow festivals led by the highest caliber of flow arts innovators. Grace finds herself constantly inspired by music, the art of movement, geometry, and the raw beauty of nature. She enjoys teaching hoopdance to children; 2016 will be her third year as a teaching artist with the After School Arts Program (ASAP) in Washington, CT, as part of their summer camp for students ages 4-13. She performs regularly at Alex Grey’s Chapel of Sacred Mirrors in Wappingers Falls, NY and also in 2016 will be returning to Unifier Festival in Tolland, MA for her second year to perform for artists such as Emancipator, Desert Dwellers, and the Human Experience. Past clients include Insomniac (Electric Daisy Carnival), the city of Danbury Connecticut, the Mayflower Inn & Spa, and Western Connecticut State University. She performs frequently throughout the tri-state area and beyond.
