About the event
Casandra Tanenbaum, MA, is an artist, an educator, a dancer, a storyteller, a writer, and so much more!
She has been rockin’ all kinds of creations and appearing, Zelig-like, in the foreground of arts movements throughout the U.S. Casandra became a professional graphic designer and an Adobe Certified expert in Photoshop while still in high school. She can write her way out of a wet paper bag, but prefers her paper bags DRY and full of monkey dust. Casandra excels in teaching, writing, graphic design, and planning unreasonably fun experiences. Additionally, she spins hula-hoops on fire. No, really, she does!
In November 2011 she created and managed the first ever state-wide flow arts festival, Florida Flow Fest, drawing hundreds of hoopers, yogis, dancers and flow artists together to share, grow and learn. This event grows annually, and has garnered award recognition from the Broward/Palm Beach New Times for BEST FESTIVAL in 2013. In 2015, Casandra branded Flow Fests and began producing festivals in other cities across the nation: Texas Flow Fest in Austin, TX; Mountain Flow Fest in Asheville, NC; So Cal Flow Fest in San Diego; Midwest Flow Fest in Chicago, IL; Northwest Flow Fest in Seattle, WA.
Casandra also became an ACE Group Fitness Instructor in 2011 and co-authored the Hoola-Fit Hoop Dance Teacher Training program with Abby Albaum of Hoola Monsters. A life-long dancer and an avid practitioner of yoga, West African dance and Capoeira, she infuses her hoop classes and personal practice with deep knowledge of creative movement and dance technique across many cultural and fine art forms.
An educator for over seventeen years, Casandra completed a Masters degree in Contemplative Education at Naropa University in June 2012. Casandra has been a contributing writer, a homeschooling advocate, a professional slam poet and poetry coach, and a High School History and Social Studies teacher. She is also the founder and director of Monkey Dust Productions, a design and event management company in Lake Worth, FL. Currently managing all arts programs at 17 sites county-wide for Boys & Girls Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County, Casandra particularly enjoys these MANY opportunities to teach, share and grow alongside the thousands of kids she serves each year.
AAF CreativeZen was born out of a desire for Choose954 & The UniteUs Group to connect, engage, and inspire our local creative community. We open the doors 30 minutes before the talk starts to mix, meet, and mingle with fellow likeminded members of our community.
Every Creative Zen event includes a complimentary guided meditation before a short inspiring and thought provoking talk during the second Friday morning of the month. All Creative Zen events are free of charge and open to the community, being creative is not required!
We hope you find the inspiration you're looking for through these stories as we did, which is why we pay it back and pay it forward by continuing these events for FREE! #AAFCreativeZen #Choose954
