Beginner Poi Dance
This four week series teaches students transitions
which allow them to combine the moves taught in the Beginner
Poi Moves class. Students also learn how to add dance elements
to make their performance more interesting and begin exploring
their individual style. This class also helps students through
their stage fright by allowing them a safe place to perform --
in front of other students learning with them. To assist your
learning process, you can purchase our 38
double sided flashcards for this class.
Students must have a working knowledge of poi and
have either taken the Beginner Poi Moves
Class or performed the relevant moves competently for one of the
certified Temple of Poi instructors.
Each of the classes meets for 80 minutes, one time per week.
Each class is divided into the following class structure:
- 25 min: warm ups, practice, performance, drills, review
- 50 min: new move clinic, individual work, drills, practice
- 5 min: homework assignments, review, cool down
The first class focuses on same direction transitions, the second
class on opposing direction transitions, while the third and final
class focus on putting the moves together and improving any weak
spots the students may still be experiencing. More advanced students
will also learn new moves as time permits.
Students registering for the Beginner Poi Dance and Beginning Poi Fire Class Series receive a 23% discount when paying for both sessions at once. Regular tuition is $240 for both series when taken individually ($120 each) and the combined discounted tuition is $200.
