If you’re new to fire dancing and want to begin your poi journey off with some guided instruction, join us for this class series. This is a six week course which teaches students all the fundamental elements of poi movement. The classes focus on technique and understanding how to manipulate the poi effectively so as to create all the basic poi movements.

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

Each class is divided into the following class structure:
