Fan and Poi Classes DISCOUNT Dec 3-Jan 29
Posted November 21, 2012
Stay strong, bright, and focused during the winter months. Come spin and dance with us!
This session features a 6-week open-level fire fan choreography series and three 7-week poi series of varying levels.
FANS AND POI WITH CLAIRE DE LUXE
All classes will be studio classes; we will resume fire practice in the spring when it's warmer.
**Please note I will be on sabbatical to India for the months of Feb, March, and April, so get your spin on now, and classes will resume in May!!**
We will continue establishing our foundations as well as fun variations on things you already know. We will spend a lot more time on transitions as our vocabulary increases, and we will begin learning stalls as well.
We will begin learning flowers and exploring them in many different timing & direction combinations. We'll keep working on stall transitions, look at some easy body tracing concepts, and play with more sequencing and short choreographed bits.
More crossers, variations, and transitions, more options w/ wall plane flower variations, some polyrhythm concepts, and body tracing ideas.
Fire Fan Choreography
We will learn sequences that blend fire fan tech with body movement and dance, taking time to learn particular fan moves when needed. Variations will be given to allow for different skill levels.
"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!
