Posted:I'm now taking bookings for my (first!) Beginners Poi Course

The course is aimed at complete or near beginners and over 7 weeks will guide you through a good variety of tricks, moves and techniques to get you up and spinning - and spinning with style biggrin

I've been spinning poi for nearly 7 years now, and have been performing for the past 4.
I've taught countless people of all ages over the years and have gathered several ways of teaching the same move, so success is very likely smile

The venue is a short walk from either of Guildford's stations (Main or London Road).
I can provide practise poi for you but you are of course more than welcome to come prepared with your own!

The classes will be every Wednesday evening from 7:30-9:30pm.

More details are available at www.burnttoast.co.uk/workshops.html

If you have any questions or want to reserve your space (places are limited!) either post here, drop me a PM, e-mail me at burnttoast_@_hugbubble.co.uk (without the spaces ) or give me a ring on 07773 399197

Posted:Right, I'm really confused... I can click, or copy and paste all the links in here, and they all work (and I'm on my work PC which is firewalled and all that jazz...)
except Jon's burntoast.co.uk which is obviously spelt wrong.

Posted:www.burntoast.co.uk does work! it just doesnt go to your site!! tongue

But seriously, we cant get to your site. It might be to do with you having a saved copy in the cache? Have you Ctrl+F5ed?

I'd get in touch with your hosters if I were you.

Posted:Where was this course when I was starting. Ah thats right on the other side of the world a few years too late.

Be nice to do a proper course and not learn all those rubbishy planes first up.

Durbs is a fab teacher.


Is it the Truth?
Is it Fair to all concerned?
Will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships?
Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?
