Michelle C. Smith

Hollywood’s Top Stuntwoman & Queen of the Lightsabers

Watch a clip of 360 MAG’s podcast with Michelle C. Smith HERE


Michelle C. Smith is an actress, stuntwoman, speaker, educator, and professional badass. She was born and raised in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada. Since she was 5 years old, she has been training to create and develop a level of Mastery around unique and valuable Prop Spinning / Manipulation skills. When she turned 11, she began competing at the World Championship level and trained 8 hours a day, 7 days a week during competition. Michelle competed in this sport’s world championships for eight years, winning several medals. ”I won a bronze medal and 3 silver medals,” she mentions.

Physical activity is essential to achieve emotional and physical well-being, but it can become something negative if it is done under a lot of pressure. In these circumstances, it can cause trauma and other problems. ”My biggest trauma is overtraining and the pressure that myself and the adults in my back environments put on me as if I’m not good enough,” she stresses.

As an International Baton Twirler Champion turned martial artist and professional specialist, she has seen the immense benefits that 30 years of training with different tools and movements have brought her. With these intricate and coordinated paths, Michelle has created choreographies and learned three specific skills that have come to her achievement: Confidence, speed, and ease. “Because of these intricate and highly specific abilities, I CAN DO ANYTHING!” says Michelle. “And so can you!”

Michelle’s passion to share her skills led to the creation of Freestyle Staff Spinning, a tool and weapon-based practice that combines the best technical material from Baton Twirling with Acrobatics and Martial Arts. This combination of sports “is so special that I really love that it’s athletic and artistic,” she adds.

The purpose of Freestyle Staff is to create and win an open and accessible space for all kinds of people to learn and fall in love with everything that Staff Spinning, Weapons Spinning and Baton Twirling have to offer. Michelle and her community of Freestyle Staff Spinners can be found on the official Freestyle Staff Academy website.

Michelle moved to Vancouver to pursue a career in dance. Through dance, she met people who worked with the Underground Circus (a professional circus group). This was her first taste of life as a working artist, as her company booked large corporate events for her to perform at.

From there, Michelle began taking martial arts classes, specifically Filipino Martial Arts and Muay Thai. She became popular in the industry for her ability to teach, train and explain the movement to the actors she doubled for or worked with on set, allowing them to feel confident and at ease with all of her physical movements. In 2014, she started doing tricks and baton and bo staff videos on her social media.

As one of the world’s foremost experts in the arts of movement and staff turning, Michelle has used her skills and strength to act as an actress, stuntwoman, or educator in many internationally known films, stage productions, and television shows such as Deadpool, SuperGirl, Van Helsing, The 100, Supernatural and Smallville, Red Riding Hood, Percy Jackson, and many more!

Michelle is an active person who is always eager to learn new things. She is a huge advocate for awareness of mental health, fitness, and training in general. Michelle’s dream is to create a world where creativity, authenticity, and bravery reign by empowering people to embrace their Own Inner Ass.

One of the music industry’s leading artists and rap virtuosos, Myke Towers, once again exhibits his masterful versatility as a global artist with the release of “Luces de Neón.” The song is available to stream on all digital platforms today.

Luces de Neón” sees Myke bring his powerhouse lyrical dexterity that has established him as one of this generation’s most dominant and noted singer-songwriters. On the track, a captivating synth-heavy melody lays the foundation for the identity of the song as it intertwines with a hypnotic and enticing reggaeton beat. Mesmerized by his female protagonist in this lustful tale, Towers confesses his strong desires through the lines of his steamy wordplay.

Having recently wrapped up a month-long tour through Europe with most of the venues completely sold out and crowds that consisted of over 30,000 plus fans in attendance, the prolific performer is also in preparations to make history with three upcoming sold out shows at the emblematic Coliseo de Puerto Rico. Towers’ long awaited homecoming run will take place on September 1617, and 18.

Earlier in the year, Towers celebrated a tremendous win at the 2022 ASCAP Latin Music Awards, where he was recognized with the special 2022 ASCAP Latin Songwriter of the Year award for his triple-platinum single “Bandido,” his contribution to Sebastián Yatra’s chart-topping “Pareja del Año,” and other songs with artists including Jay Wheeler, Wisin, Los Legendarios, MTZ and Rauw Alejandro.

His legacy is further cemented by the success of albums such as “Easy Money Baby” (2020), “Lyke Mike” (released in April 2021), his EP “Para Mi Ex” which featured his hit track “Bandido” alongside Juhn, reaching the No.1 spot on Billboard’s US Latin Airplay charts. His album “Lyke Mike” was recognized in both Complex and Billboard’s “Best Album of 2021” lists. Towers ended 2021 on a high note with the release of his single “Experimento,” off of his highly anticipated forthcoming studio album. The Puerto Rican singer-songwriter also premiered his track “Almas Gemelas” to fans across the globe with an unforgettable performance at the 2021 Premios Juventud Awards. Adding to his international appeal, the multi-platinum selling artist also became the first lifestyle ambassador to sign a global deal with PUMA Motorsport to focus on streetwear and car culture.

KYGO  ×  DEAN LEWIS

Global superstar, producer, and DJ Kygo teams up with Australian singer/songwriter Dean Lewis to release their 2-track bundle via RCA Records. The bundle features the vibrant new single Lost Without You, released today, along with the previously released melodic track Never Really Loved Me.

Cresco Workers are Fighting for a Union on Legalization Day

Cresco Labs employees who are fighting for a Union alongside Local 881 UFCW will flyer outside of Cresco’s Wrigleyville dispensary on the 1st day of legal recreational sales to waiting customers. They’ll be there to inform those waiting in line about their campaign for a Union in Joliet, IL and Cresco’s retaliation against their own employees who are standing up for better wages, benefits, schedules, and dignity on the job.

WHEN: Wednesday, January 1, 2020 (6:00am-9:00am)

WHERE: Sunnyside Dispensary – Lakeview (3812 N Clark St, Chicago, IL 60613)

WHY: Anti-Union Cannabis Lab is Growing Disappointment for Workers

Workers at Cresco Labs, one of the largest cannabis companies operating in Illinois, are organizing to be represented by Local 881 United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW). Cresco owners rejected the request to recognize Local 881 at their grow facility in Joliet, IL. In response, Local 881 has filed a petition for election with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

Workers at Cresco in Illinois report that the Company initiated a full anti-Union campaign against them the moment they started their organizing campaign. Local 881 has charged Cresco with committing numerous violations of federal labor laws. The unfair labor practices committed by Cresco are intended to intimidate and coerce the workers from exercising their federal right to organize. Charges filed by Local 881 has filed a petition for election with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

⁃ Interrogating workers who are pro-Union

⁃ Unlawful coercion of workers by conferring benefits

⁃ Soliciting workers grievances

“The cannabis industry is about to grow enormously in Illinois,” said Steve Powell, Local 881 President and UFCW International Vice President. “it is very disappointing to see Cresco lowering the standards and expectations of jobs in this industry.” The workers at Cresco Labs in Illinois believe joining the Union will help improve their working conditions. Many of the workers compare the conditions at Cresco to a bad factory. “I would like to unionize Cresco for better pay, a voice at work, better benefits and a better work environment,” said Natajsha, a Cresco employee, “Just because you work in an industry that you are passionate about doesn’t mean you should to be paid less!” Workers will no longer tolerate Cresco’s second-rate working conditions, including:

⁃ Low wages

⁃ Inadequate health plan

⁃ Unpredictable schedules

⁃ Ignored PTO requests

⁃ Lack of respect

“We worked very hard to pass legislation for medical use and worked even harder to pass recreational use,” said Representative Lawrence Walsh Jr. of the Illinois 86th District. “It is a betrayal to all of us that believe in the opportunities of the cannabis industry, when we hear that Cresco has engaged in anti-union activity and refused to recognize the wishes of their workers.” The workers want to address and fix these issues with their employer as the industry grows. Local 881 is committed to helping Cresco workers organize and improve their working conditions. Local 881 will fight to ensure that their rights and dignity are respected.
