Brynne embarked on a year long project of improvisational dance with moveintuit:everyday.Everyday for a full year, Brynne posted a completely improvisation dance video. All of these videos are posted on Brynne’s youtube account and her website.
“This project serves as a rebellion against the cultural norms of video editing and censoring oneself. Through improv. dance, I am able to present my authentic reality. I vow to remain open, honest, vulnerable, and courageous throughout this journey. Real.” -Brynne Flidais

Brynne… Having seen you when you first encountered the 418, quickly owning the space (not just renting!), offering hoop & movement classes when you alone sat at your table with postcards, your persistence was impressive. Now, as the 418 Studio & Social Media Manager & consultant to the 418 Board, your impact in the larger community is impressive & your classes are flourishing. This video compilation is wonderful—full of memorable moments too numerous to describe. I salute you. Bravo—you are an inspiration!
