Tracing is one of the most important and beautiful concepts to grasp when it comes to poi spinning. Learning tracing patterns will force you to clean up your planes, harmonize body movement with poi, and gain greater control over your props. This class covers intermediate and advanced patterns. No matter how long youve been spinning, I guarantee you will learn plenty. We will start by talking about what tracing is and what it looks like. This includes the hand positions involved in tracer theory and the possible transitions in between them. After a short amount of theory talk, we will go through practice patterns that will help us exercise these ideas one hand at a time. Well spend enough time to work on both hands in a variety of directions until it all makes enough sense to move up to both poi. Once single-hand practice is done we will cycle through the four main direction and timing combinations while covering pattern ideas in each as well as exercises to help your body make it all happen. The timing and direction combinations include: - Same Time / Together Direction - Split Time / Together Direction - Same Time / Opposite Direction - Split Time / Opposite Direction After weve played around with each, well bring it all together by talking about transitions to help us move between it all as freely as we want. Throughout the class, well take breaks so everyone can practice while I do 1-on-1 check-ins with everyone to make sure were all clear on whats being worked on. If theres time at the end, well open the floor for some skill sharing on tracing patterns to help everyone load up on ideas to practice.
