This class starts with the very basics of contact staff. I will quickly explain how contact staff is different from the bo staff style, and then go over what properties make for an optimal contact staff. We will move to ways of getting familiar with balancing the staff on your body, and getting used to that feeling. I will go over the importance of fishtails and provide a few different ways of practicing them. I will also cover halo rolls, steve rolls, conveyor belts, and propellers, among a few other beginner moves. It is challenging to get a lot of these moves down in a one hour class, so I will be focusing on giving attendants multiple methods to practice each move and make sure to give them plenty to practice on their own. I will also be making myself available for additional help and one on one time with anyone who is interested. Several practice staves will be available for those without one to borrow for the class.
