Fall Poi Sessions Sep 10-Nov 13
Posted August 5, 2012
Spinning poi creates a strong body and a strong mind. Create new muscle mass and new neural pathways, and have a wonderful time doing so!
POI WITH CLAIRE DE LUXE
Fall poi sessions will be starting Sept 10th and 11th. This season offers Poi 1, Poi 3, Poi 5, and Intermediate Poi. All classes are 10-week sessions, and the last class is a fire class.
Wheee you're learning poi! One of the funnest times in your poi journey. We get comfortable with concepts of timing and direction, build foundations, learn initial poi vocabulary, and start turning and linking things together immediately.
Poi 2 returns in the winter.
We will be adding intense stall transitions to our poi vocabulary and learning how to effortlessly move from moves using different timing and direction combos. We will continue adding new moves and concepts into the mix and focus on turning and moving with everything we're doing as well.
Poi 4 returns in the winter.
We will continue to develop our flower patterns and look at integrating them into other concepts. We'll add different types of flower patterns and look at how to develop new ones. We'll work on some sequences that will push our transition theory further and delve more into some split opposite patterns as well. We'll also look at some fun tricks like crossers.
We will apply antispin to more patterns, look at more combinations with wall plane flowers, vertical stalls, and introduce some more body tracing. And whatever other fun stuff comes up.
"Claire makes poi not only approachable, but fun. She's able to break down the moves into very digestible pieces so if you're completely new to poi, you can still master the most basic moves to build up from. Since the classes are small, she's able to give each student individual attention and pointers. Her endless patience and enthusiasm are also a big bonus, especially since each person moves at a different rate of learning. Thank you Claire!" -Teresa Nasty
"Claire is a fantastic instructor who introduced me to the joyful and beautiful dance of poi! Personally I find spinning poi meditative and liberating--and it also adds life and 'wow' to any party!" -Shuli, non-profit professional
"Claire took a daunting concept (spinning fire!) and broke it down into a series of easy steps so that week after week, we were able to build on a collection of simple lessons to create some visually stunning movements. Her teaching style was supportive and she was really good at giving individual feedback on things that I struggled with. Fast forward 10 weeks and suddenly I'm doing exactly what I came to do, with the knowledge and support of an awesome instructor!" -Shawn Mac, Educational technologist & photographer
"I travel three boroughs to attend Claire's class and could not have found a better teacher and inspiration. Not only is she well addressed in the art, her teaching is gentle, keen and consistent . I found her professional passion to be patient and thorough as well as fun! She's a good one. And once I lit up under her guidance... I found that I wanted to light up always." -Louisa Abreu, NBC UNIVERSAL, Studio Operations.
"Claire's poi classes, both private and group, have been great for my body and mind. I suffer from wrist and hand issues but since beginning poi classes have experienced less pain overall and fewer major episodes of immobility. Claire helps dissect the moves in ways that make them easy and fun to pick up. She is always encouraging yet knows how far to push each of her students based on their experience/needs. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a poi teacher." -Catherine Bogin
Looking forward to spinning with you!
