Overview

This Fall, Temple of Poi is pleased to return to Lines Ballet and to celebrate our 10 Year Anniversary, we’ve created a special  Fall Flow Emersion Boot Camp Series. The full series consists of:Poi Fire Dancing Classes San Francisco

  • Skill Classes: 15 mixed level intermediate through advanced classes pulled from our traditional stalls, flowers, CAPS, antispin, under the leg, plane breaking, opposite direction and behind the back curriculum. These sessions are focused on refining move technique and repertoire to develop artists skill. The curriculum in each class is based on the attendees of the class and is customized on the fly within the context of the content of the evening. For example, a “Flower 1” class could cover any combination of in spin flowers in any direction. The specific flower patterns we work on will be based on what provides the greatest learning opportunity for the greatest number of people in the class and we will tailor each evening appropriately.
    Tuition: $30 per session
  • Flow Classes: 4 mixed level intermediate through advanced classes focused on footwork, follow the leader, transitions between moves, integrating new moves into combinations and adding these moves to each artists flow. During these sessions there is also an emphasis on stylizing movement so that artists can not only flow better, they can express more individuality within each flow. Tuition: $30 per session
  • Casual Classes: 5 mixed level beginner through advanced casual classes. These sessions are more structured than an indoor flow jam and less structured than either the Flow or Skill classes described above. The sessions are designed for students looking to either practice and/or get guidance on material they are already working with . These sessions will include at least one instructor who will be available throughout the 90 minute class period to answer questions.
    Tuition: $12 per session or 5 for $50  Notes: Please go to this page if you wish to register for the Casual Classes only
  • Flowtastic Jam: 1 90 minute evening indoor flow, spin and dance jam where artists can practice in a beautiful 1600 sq. ft. mirrored studio on a sprung floor. This is not a class, rather, a practice opportunity.
    Tuition: $5
  • Private Training: some package deals below include a one-on-one session at Temple of Poi Head Quarters (953 Mission in SoMa) where you can cover whatever material is most appropriate for you.
    Tuition: $70
