Want to feel more freedom with your movements on the dance floor while twirling your poi? Looking for more flow between moves? Need to integrate recently acquired skills into performance flow with moves in your comfort zone? Then join us for two nights this trimester where you can explore creating something unique.

Each student brings 6+ moves or combinations to the class and GlitterGirl will then put the moves together into a flow that’s unique to those moves in that class. Students should bring 3 beginner moves that are easy for them to execute and 3 intermediate moves that are easy for them to execute. It’s good to have a selection as we try to use moves that most people in the room know. The point of this class is not to learn moves but to learn how to flow between moves more effectively while learning new transitions between things you love and other moves you maybe use less.

The combination will be created on the fly based on student suggestions.  Students with more advanced moves will be presented with alternate combo modifications in which to use their moves. GlitterGirl will then teach the combination. Generally, we complete 2 combinations that can then be strung together to form a flow that lasts between 60-90 seconds, depending on the tempo and number of repetitions per move.

Each class is independent so students may easily drop in on any session.

Note: Be prepared to execute at least 6 or more moves you’d like to add to a combination. Even if you can’t name the move, if you can demonstrate it, we can consider using it in the flow. 

This session will run 8 pm Monday June 1 at Lines Ballet (26 7th Street, 5th floor, studio 4). Tuition is one of the following:
