Intermediate & Advanced Poi Boot Camp Class Pass

Posted on June 7, 2012 by


Looking to ninja up your poi skills this summer? Join Temple of Poi for the Poi Boot Camp Class Pass series happening during June, July and August, 2012.

Each class is a self contained lesson and unless indicated below, does not require you attending prior classes. Classes are thematic in nature. The specific material covered will fall within the described genre of movements though the material is custom tailored each and ever class in direct response to student feedback, skill level and input.

At the beginning of each session, we will assess where students are at, suggest different possible content and based on the feedback of the students present that night, we will co-create a fun learning experience where everyone grows their skills.


Space is limited so students are encouraged to sign up for the series rather than drop in.

  • Students may drop in to a single class for a drop in fee of $30. This must be paid in cash at the door of the class.
  • Students may also sign up for the Boot Camp Gold Class Pass which entitles then to 4 classes for a fee of $110, saving them $10.
  • Students gain the greatest discount by signing up for the Boot Camp Platinum Class Pass which entitles them to 10 sessions for $200, a savings of 33% or $100 off the regular price of tuition.
  • Students signing up for either Class Pass will receive a physical class pass the first night of class with their name on it. Students MUST present their class pass at any class they attend and their card will be punched based on the number of classes purchased.
