About Us

Ardyn Flynt - Funkamentals - MediKinetics


 Ardyn Flynt identifies as a multi-linguistic corporeal conversationalist. Part of the inaugural class of the Glorya Kaufman School of Dance, she spent four years studying diverse forms in simultaneity and working to fuse elements of street dance practices with more European etymologized styles. In conjunction with William Forsythe and d. Sabela Grimes, she crafted a curriculum marrying Forsythe improv technologies and Funkimental MediKinetics (a Hip Hop movement system conceptualized by Grimes). She has taught this curriculum for the “Art of” ballet intensive in Switzerland, for the Hubbard Street Los Angeles intensive, and now for the Paul Taylor summer intensive. Her own movement language draws heavily from Forsythian principles of structure, House dance movement/culture, and ballet.
