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 and combine them with your old moves in your comfort zone? Looking for some practical experience writing short choreography? Then join us for this 4 week class designed to assist you in understanding how to assess your skill set, determine your strengths and weaknesses while you learn to create your own combinations.

Night one of the class will be mostly about poi theory as well as skill assessment. Bring a pen as you will be taking notes and writing down lists for yourself. Handouts will be provided. Through this session you will understand your strongest and weakest areas as an artist, while understanding your preferences and areas of development. We’ll outline the moves you know vs the moves you are learning and, the directions you prefer and help you progress your understanding of how these move interrelate with each other.

Over the subsequent three weeks of class, students will use the knowledge applied in the first week to both build combinations individually, in games with other students and as a group. In addition to creating the combinations, we’ll also practice the transitions to develop access to these sequences with increasing efficacy.

Note: Due to the sequential nature of the material presented in this class, you must attend class one if you wish to attend another class in the series. 

This session will run 8 pm (for 80 minutes) Tuesdays 11/10, 11/17, 12/1 and 12/15 at Lines Ballet (26 7th Street, studio 4). Bring a pen to class 1 – you will be taking notes in this class almost exclusively. Tuition is one of the following:

  • $30 cash at the door per night drop-in if space allows (must take night one to attend any of the subsequent nights) or
  • $120 for the full series ($60 down, $60 due in cash night one)
  • 1 intermediate credit on the beginner boot camp package for each night attended or
  • best value: pay $18.05 a session when you join the Fall 2015 Intermediate/Advanced Poi Boot Camp
