Hi, Marlo here.

I’ve always been immersed in movement. I've studied dance for 30 years and have taught movement professionally for 18 years. I love leading atypical group movement experiences, and I am continually exploring how I can lead in innovative and welcoming ways. 

I'm a graduate of the Virginia Governors School for the Arts (modern dance major), and I have a degree in Anthropology and Public Relations from the University of Miami. Over the years I accumulated numerous certifications and credentials in the fitness and mind-body realm, but working directly with movement innovators and decades of self-directed study has been the most impactful on my work today.

I'm most known for my pole dance accolades and innovations. I started experimenting out of curiosity over 11 years ago before there were mainstream competitions. Pole dance confirmed that there is a magic in moving in circles, abandoning the confines of a mat, slowing way down, and using your full range of motion. 

Flow Movement was born out of my desire to share what I understand about fluid movement. I wanted to share the benefits of dance experiences without the things that generally scare people away. Dance doesn't have to be complicated or intimidating, though it too often is. The Flow Movement approach invites all people in and delivers in a way that stimulates imagination, sensuality, connection, and playfulness.

After 10 years in NYC, I now reside in Boulder Colorado with my partner Kenneth Kao. We travel internationally to teach 6-10 months a year. One of my proudest accomplishments is teaching in 70 countries — visiting many of them repeatedly. It's not that I've traveled that brings me joy, it's that I've built something unique that people all over the world want to experience.
