2017-18 Workshop Season + NEW Leadership Team Announced

Fb Cover Workshop 17 18 Season Annoucement

Dear Community,

It's that time of year when the weather begins to turn. Fear not! We have plenty of indoor options, the very reason why SpinCo became a thing! We have spent more time on outreach this summer than we ever have before and collected an amazing amount of feedback from our participants. We are proud to say that we refined our programming to seek out the instructors you want most while continuing the $5 open skill shares every month for nearly 6 years!

Not only that, but with great honor, we welcome a new leadership team to The Philadelphia Spin Coalition. Since these volunteers are elected by our community, for our community, we wish to be fully transparent in how they are elected and communicate each individual's invested time dedicated to the sustainability and growth of movement arts in Philadelphia.

These are your community leaders within the fastest growing artistic movement in Philly.

SpinCo wants to help everyone find their passion as a volunteer by supporting the people who make up the movement arts culture of Philadelphia. Together, we encourage community growth and strengthen existing relationships through on-site presence at gatherings, performances, festivals, and other flow-arts related events within 3 hours of Philadelphia.

A chance to inspire the lives of many.

These volunteers have been invited to represent SpinCo because the community believes their personal brand is who and what SpinCo is all about. They help make decisions and collaboratively work on activities that are in line with the goals of the organization (reviewed annually). Community Service is the very core of SpinCo. It's a practice.

Being a SpinCo volunteer means being up-to-date, relevant, and realistic about happenings within the movement arts culture of Philadelphia. SpinCo believes that perpetual participation in movement arts, circus, dance and flow arts builds the judgement required to make decisions in the best interest of community. Participation also builds the respect needed to effectively communicate to our community and all those who support the amazing benefits of movement arts practice with a prop.
