Beginner Poi Moves

Course Overview

this is an intermediate class

This is a six week course which teaches students all the fundamental elements of poi movement. The classes focus on technique and understanding how to manipulate the poi effectively so as to create all the basic poi movements.  

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

This course provides instruction for the beginner poi dancers. During each class, new concepts will be introduced in the "new move clinic" which are then reinforced during the remainder of the class.

The first two classes focus on the fundamentals of poi movement. The next four classes cover the pinwheel, butterfly and weave moves as well as variations of these moves.

To assist your learning process, you can purchase our 42 double sided flashcards for this class and we also have on line reference material developed to supplement the training you receive in class.
