Want to level up your poi skills with one of the most prolific and never ending opportunities for growth, fun-filled, poi geekery? Looking to expand your skill with flowers? We have just the remedy — this class is loads of fun and is highly recommended for intermediate and advanced students who want to take their skills to the next level.

Join us for this 5 week flower series meeting at 8 pm Tuesdays at Lines Ballet (26, 7th Street, 5th floor, studio 4, San Francisco). Class meets Tuesdays, 8 pm, September 17, 24, October 1, 8 and 15.

This class is designed to be repeated many times, each time taking a deeper cut at the practice and delineating more complex patterns requiring more hand independent skill. This is a mixed level class for both those new to flowers, antispin, wall plane hybrids and lockouts as well as those who are interested in expanding their repertoire in this arena. For the neophytes, this 4 week series introduces artists to concepts that will expand the artist’s repertoire for months, if not years.

This course begins with the basic concepts of flowers — side, front, back, floor and ceiling  planes — and continues building on variations on this theme, tying together the flowers, barrel rolls and lockouts (using spin and antispin as appropriate) with buzzsaw fountains, wall plane weaves and combinations to integrate the moves into your practice.

Not sure you know what flowers are? Here’s a poi spinning video featuring flowers, antispin, CAPs and hybrids heavily in the early part of the video and then interspersed throughout the flow in the later part of the video.

For those who are already indoctrinated into the world of flowers, we will work on more advanced flowers integrating antispin into the repertoire, focusing on goofy flowers, hybrids, CAPS, swivels turns, and other patterns to expand on basic flower, antispin and wall plane concepts. 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 which means we run multiple curriculums at once. 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.
