Beginner Poi Boot Camp

Beginner Poi Fire Dancing Boot camp

Course Overview


Due to Covid-19, as of March 14, in person boot camp options are suspended until further notice.

For those looking for a poi fire dancing emersion program starting from no skills and jumping to performance ready, consider this Beginning Poi Fire Dancing Boot Camp program. Our minmum goal in this program is to create a strong enough foundation for the artist that at the end of the boot camp, a student could, on his/her own perform casually in front of their friends. Through this ongoing relationship, we deepen the practice on all levels — body, mind, expression, technique, comprehensive, confidence and safety. This 7 month program includes the following classes, workshops and materials:Beginner Poi Class Boot Camp Temple of Poi San Francisco

How it Works

Over a period of roughly 7  months (some students complete in 5, some in 8, depending on the season of the year and schedule compatibility), students sign up for the classes above (by contacting GlitterGirl) as the classes become available and fit the student’s schedule much like an a la carte menu. Regardless of how many courses are being attended a week or how quickly students complete the curriculum, payments are spread out over 7 months in even payments of $125. The first payment is paid via the link below and subsequent monthly payments are due in CASH on the 15th of each month either paid to the class instructor or in an envelope in cash slipped through the door at the Temple of Poi studio.

Classes are generally scheduled between 6 and 10 Monday thru Wednesday and sometimes Thursday and all classes are held in our San Francisco studios in SOMA. As of Fall 2012, classes are held either in our main studio (953 Mission Street, Suite 11 between 5th and 6th streets) or at Lines Ballet (26 7th Street between Mission and Market).  We work with our client’s to create our class schedule in a way that works for them to the degree that this is possible.

Please note, as of Fall 2017, all intermediate sessions are Tuesdays at 8 PM at Lines Ballet.
