Posted:: biggrin Hi folks! biggrin









Heres the details of the next Beginners and Intermediate Poi Spinning courses. Updates are also available at www.poispinning.com. Places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment, especially as we have become even more popular since featuring in TNT and Time Out magazines!





biggrinThe next Beginners Poi Courses will run as follows:

September course: start September 12th & 13th 2005

Mon (Camden Town) 7:30 - 9:30pm

Tues (Elephant & Castle) 7:30 - 9:30pm





October courses: start October 24th & 25th

Mon (Camden Town) 7:30 - 9:30pm

Tues (Elephant & Castle) 7:30 - 9:30pm







Courses run for 6 weeks. Exact venue details are provided once you have booked on the course. Price: 75(concs available). Here's whats on the course...





The Beginners course will teach you about thirty basic moves and how to put them all together so that you can flow from one to the other. Starting at the very beginning with how to hold your poi, we swiftly go on to moves such as reels, tuck turns, the weave, the backwards weave, the windmill, the butterfly and the fountain. (If you can do all of these moves already contact me regarding the Intermediate course). We will also explore basic concepts such as turns, follow time, linking moves together, and opposite directions, allowing you to begin to invent and explore your own moves and style. The course culminates in a show, so we will also work on choreography and presentation. Expect to work hard but have a good laugh with the others!









biggrin The next Intermediate Poi courses will run as follows:

September course: starts September 14th 2005

Weds (Camden Town) 7:30 - 9:30pm



October course: starts October 26th 2005

Weds (Camden Town) 7:30 - 9:30pm




Courses run for 6 weeks. Price 75 (concs available). There are 12 places in total available on the course.



The Intermediate course focuses on how to invent new tricks and develop your own style, helping you make poi your own. Each lesson will explore a new concept, (for example alternating, take outs, mixing planes etc) using several tricks as examples, that will enable you to invent your own moves based on that concept. The course will also look at new tricks such as waist wraps, stops, push thrus and behind the back weave.













biggrinYour teachers will be Monique Aislabe cool and Kevin Shaw juggle.

Monique is an established performer, performing solo as the Ginger Ninja and as part of the international fire troupe Surface Tension. She has been teaching poi for several years, and until recently ran her own courses in Camden Town. She has been extremely popular with students on the Apex poi courses, and is known for her warm, patient and intuitive style of teaching.

Kevin has been juggling for over 14 years and began his poi career by teaching his teacher moves after the first 5 minutes! Since then he has been teaching and performing all over the world. In total Kevin has taught several thousand students, both informally and at juggling workshops, and is generally acknowledged to be both a cutting edge spinner and an excellent teacher.
