Modest Mondays: Sliding Scale one night intensives

What are Modest Monday classes?

Unlike regular classes at Temple of Poi, these classes are designed with sliding scale pricing for artists who are struggling to get quality education at below market rates in our ever expensive but beloved San Francisco. We ask that students who can afford to, pay full price ($30) or join with the Small Business Saturday Specials to help subsidize those students who can’t afford as much. Classes meet 80 minute per sessions and will run like normal mixed level intermediate classes where the material will be taught to multiple levels concurrently in the classroom.

What’s Included

This fall we will offer 6 sessions in the Model Monday series.

  • January 25: Tangles (orbital, airwrap, hyperloops and variants)

Previews of these moves will be found in the videos for this Transition Flair class series.
