Anyone who tells you size doesn’t matter hasn’t considered the many contexts in which is absolutely does, and performance is undeniably one of them! If you haven’t studied the 7 Layer Dip much, you may not be familiar with our theory of why size is important but if you have, this course will be a great way to expand your reach as an artist.

This is a mixed level class covering short poi movements on the inside plane horizontally and vertically, as well as long arm movements including lots of variations on:

  • buzzsaws – same and opposite direction, plane shifting, with stalls and taps
  • corkscrews – including the inside plane 4 beat in same direction
  • giant – in same and opposite direction
  • giant swivels – in same and opposite directions
  • buzz saw fountains – same and opposite direction with extensions and without
  • and more!

This class is loads of fun and is highly recommended for advanced beginner and intermediate students who want to take their skills to the next level and add some fun combinations perfect for practice at indoor tight spaces. This is the first of the classes in the Fall 2014 Poi Intermediate Boot Camp.

This class will be held in a huge studio with high ceilings. The series is a mixed level class where we will start with a basic concept and continue to build on it throughout each class and the series overall. Students are invited to take the class at their own pace and we adjust the material to accommodate each student’s needs. This series will continue to expand on the concepts by working with turns and combinations that integrate the recently acquired moves.

As a reminder, this and all classes at Temple of Poi are taught with the Flowology Mindset practiced rigorously.
