GlitterGirl: Poi Polyrhythmics & C-CAPs

Rub your head while you pat your belly is the name of the game in this series where your hands will be working in different rhythms often. This means in the same interval of time, each poi will do a different number of revolutions.

We’ll work on adding 2×1 patterns to the following moves:

  • thread the needle
  • weaves
  • hipreels
  • windmills
  • corkscrews
  • and combinations

This will get you started with the concept and will prepare you for some polythrythmic (and non) C-CAP patterns, a sneak peak of which you can take in this, 57 C-CAPs for Beginners. Watch this video for a preview of the course and the fire teasers after.

This is a series and some material will build from week to week. Please check with GlitterGirl if you wish to drop in to classes 3 or 4 without prior attendance. This session will run 8 pm Wednesdays February 18, 25, March 4 and 11 at Lines Ballet (26 7th Street, 5th floor, studio 2). Tuition is one of the following:
