GIRL, YOU GOT THIS! [PARKOUR]
AGES 8 AND UP
Flux is committed to increasing the visibility and participation of young girls and women in the movement art of Parkour. Collaboration and the sharing of stories is key to the development of a strong and resilient community and the parkour community is no different. At Flux we believe girls and young women have vast and diverse experiences in their moving bodies and that these experiences have much to contribute in the development of a robust and diverse parkour culture.
The time is now. The time was 10 years ago. Come to a Flux Parkour class and look around you. What do you see? Young kids jumping, swinging and leaping through the air. You are in awe as a kid effortlessly hops from object to object and lands with perfect precision on a small rail. You observe a small group of kids giving each other high fives and strategizing over a tricky jump that they want to attempt. They are problem solving together as they consider their options. You become aware that this small gathering of young humans demonstrate an ease both in how they move in their bodies and also in communicating their fears and strengths with one another. The energy swirling between these bodies is palpable. But where are the girls? For every 10 boys there is 1 girl.
Flux’s all girls parkour class is the first step in addressing this glaring gender imbalance. This class is ALSO open to moms, aunts, guardians, etc. who would like to join the young girls in their life on their parkour adventure. We think this is a perfect way to share a Saturday morning!
Flux recognizes the linguistic pitfalls of gender identification as it simultaneously acknowledges the lived, everyday realities of young girls. This class is open to all girls and gender non-conforming folks ages 8 and up.
