Posted:Hello all!
As you might have guessed form the thread title; I'm running a Beginners Staff Course...

The course is designed for those who may or may not have picked up a staff before, but want to learn how to swing one!

It will cover everything you need to know to twirl/swing/spin, confidently, capably and safely. Covering all aspects: basic/intermediate moves (as well as some more challenging moves), how to move with your staff, linking moves, how to develop your own moves/style and fire safety.

The lessons will run over 6 weeks (weekends) for 2 hours in a Central London location.

I've developed the course with help from Michal who runs the "Apex Poi Courses" - if you know, or have heard, what her courses are like - this course will be quite similar in structure and approach.

For a bit of background: I have been twirling for over 6 years now. I have taught fire twirling in US Summer Camps for 3 years (kids from 14-17: from nothing to a show in under 3 weeks!), and am now 'making a living' twirling.

If you need further "quality assurance" I'm sure that Glass, Tempest, BamBam, PK (what's he called now?), DarkFairyQueen, Carrey, Dom etc... will vouch for my teaching abilities.

So if you'd like to attend, please let me know as soon as possible - class size is limited to 13 people (max!) - either by e-mail or phone (below).

and, erm....that's my blag over!

Would I need to purchase a staff, or will a broomstick do?!

Posted:Awww....how special do you make me feel Dom??*blush*

Yes yes...I forgot to put the cost...

I'm pricing the course at 40 quid with concessions for unemployed and students (will need proof/ID though).

I will be making practice staffs for the class, so you can BYO, but I should have enough to go around.

Hope that's cool!

See y'all at PiP!!

Posted:And you'll be in scotland to teach Dibs to staff when Mr,Knox??????!!! Hmmm?!!!

Can't make it to London for then, I'm working. In Medina. free drinks for you when you're next there!

Can miles truly separate us from friends? If we want to be with someone we love aren't we already there? If there is someone willing to show, and there is someone willing to see; magic happens. This is whem humans are alive. This is when the wingless fly.

Posted:Hi hi...

Just a quick note to say that the class is now full.

Sorry to those who couldn't/can't join up; I'll be starting another course in 6-8 weeks.
