Introduction to Fire Dancing Advanced Beginner/ Intermediate I Poi Intensive Intermediate II Poi Intensive

At the beginning of the in person portion of the 25 hour training, students will study the computer based training program and begin the in person classes by reviewing these moves:

  • sweeps
  • pinwheels
  • corkscrews
  • butterflies and take outs
  • weaves

Students will then learn how to connect these moves together and will broaden their repertoire by adding:

  • stalls
  • stall and wrap combinations to go from same direction to split direction
  • hip reels
  • thread the needle
  • butterfly turnarounds
  • weave turnarounds
  • weave pinwheel turnarounds

Students will ultimately "perform" both with and without fire in this intensive workshop.

This 8 hour series focuses on learning the next level of moves, transitioning effectively between moves and various performance concepts to assist the early intermediate practitioner in developing their poi into a more powerful and uniquely expressive style. Building on the basic moves taught in the Beginning Poi Computer Based Training program, which students gain access to as part of the purchase of this intensive, students will then learn how to connect these moves together and will broaden their repertoire by adding additional transitions, moves and combinations to their repertoire.

  • stalls
  • split direction

Testimonials

"GlitterGirl is worth listening to (not that she's not worth listening to about other things, but I'm writing about poi, specifically). She has great observations about tweaks to what you're already doing as well as suggestions for wholly different things to do. She explains both as eloquently and clearly as anyone I've met."
