Beginner Poi Moves, May 19, 8 PM – One spot left!

Posted on April 16, 2014 by


Beginner Poi MovesJoin us for the first in our Beginner Poi series, with Beginner Moves teaching over 40 different moves and combinations. This class is appropriate for those with absolutely no experience through early beginners with a few moves but not a lot of vocabulary, comprehension, technique and confidence. If you have no experience, this class is for you. If you have limited experience then this class is probably for you — contact GlitterGirl (glittergirl [that pretty little at sign] templeofpoi [daaaaaaught] com) to set up your free assessment to see where you fit in our curriculum. Each of the classes meets for 80 minutes, one time per week.

Series info:

  • Time/Dates: Mondays, 8:00 -9:20 PM, 5/19, 6/2, 6/9, 6/16, 6/23 & 6/30
  • Location: Temple of Poi, 953 Mission Street, Suite 11, between 5th and 6th on Mission, San Francisco, CA, USA

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

This course provides instruction for the beginner poi dancers. During each class, new concepts will be introduced in the “new move clinic” which are then reinforced during the remainder of the class. The first two classes focus on the fundamentals of poi movement. The next four classes cover the chasing the sun, stalls, corkscrew, pinwheel, butterfly and weave moves as well as extensive variations of these moves. All moves are taught in both directions for maximum learning. To assist your learning process, you can purchase our computer based training material. For those who know they are committed to a poi practice, consider joining the Temple of Poi Beginner Poi Boot Camp program which offers a 20% discount on 7 months worth of classes.
