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.
