Join us for the Beginner Poi Fire Dancing Class at Temple of Poi. Next Dance Series: April 2, 2012, 6:30 – 7:50 PM.

Course Overview

This four week series teaches students transitions which allow them to combine the moves taught in the Beginner Poi Moves class. Students also learn how to add dance elements to make their performance more interesting and begin exploring their individual style. This class also helps students through their stage fright by allowing them a safe place to perform — in front of other students learning with them. To assist your learning process, you can purchase our 38 double sided flashcards for this class.


Students must have a working knowledge of poi and have either taken the Beginner Poi Moves Class or performed the relevant moves competently for one of the certified Temple of Poi instructors.

Course Overview

Each of the classes meets for 80 minutes, one time per week.

Each class is divided into the following class structure:

  • 25 min: warm ups, practice, performance, drills, review
  • 50 min: new move clinic, individual work, drills, practice
  • 5 min: homework assignments, review, cool down

The first class focuses on same direction transitions, the second class on opposing direction transitions, while the third and final class focus on putting the moves together and improving any weak spots the students may still be experiencing. More advanced students will also learn new moves as time permits.
