Cultivate: Evolving Your Poi Practice

Course Overview

this is an intermediate class

Do you feel like you know some poi moves but don't know what to do with them? Do you find you can't remember what move to do next? Do you find that you're always doing the moves you like the most rather than growing in your skills? Are you uncertain how to practice to acquire more skills?
Do you feel you're rigid when you're spinning your poi and don't move around enough? Do you experience your practice as stalled and uninteresting? Do you find yourself uninspired to drill new moves and transitions? Do you wish you could flow more between moves? Do you find you lack confidence in your poi skills? Have you ever finished a performance only to say, "I wish I had remembered that move!" Are you looking to be more self expressed with your poi performances? Have you ever felt like you were tripping over your own feet?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this workshop is for
you! Join us for this workshop, Cultivate: Evolving Your Poi Practice, where you will learn:

  • how to integrate moves more rapidly
  • how to generate a more complex performance for your audience
  • how to expand your repertoire
  • to deepen your understanding of how moves and transitions relate to each other
  • to explore poi as an exploration of the mind, body and sprit with the intention of creating more fun
  • how to create a lasting practice to keep you from boredom while propelling your skills

This workshop is open to beginner* through professional poi artists and will help you in your practice no matter what your skill level. During this class, students will explore the relationship between drills, moves and transitions to deepen their poi practice. Student will each receive their own set of flash cards (theirs to keep as part of the tuition of the class) to be used during a series of exercises we will explore as a group. Participants will then work individually, applying the concepts and principles of the practice to their current level of development and explore how the practice will work most effectively for them.

"I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how glad I was to have attended the workshop last night. I couldn't wait to get home and practice my poi w/ a renewed sense of purpose and inspiration! It was so much less frustrating to think about flow energy instead of fight energy. I was able to brush off hitting myself in the face much easier. It was well worth the price of admission! Thank you."
