Fundamentals of Poi
Come one, come all! Whether youve been spinning poi for a while or just picking them up for the first time, this class will help pave a clear and exciting path ahead for your poi development. Well start at the very beginning where we flail around aimlessly with zero goal and no possible mistakes. Everyone wins, even face shots! Once thats out of our system, well move on to talk about the movement of the poi itself, how that relates to our body, and how it all comes across visually to those watching us. I will talk to you about the different types of horizontal and vertical planes as well as what static and extension movements mean. To round out our familiarity, we will play around with these ideas in their normal forwards directions and their reverse counterparts. The class will finish by touching lightly on the large branches of poi theory youre bound to move on to soon, including: - Weaves - Flowers - Pendulums - Tracing Along the way, Ill provide exercises to help train your brain and body in these new ideas more effectively, and well bring it together by covering some of the larger patterns to aim for as your next big milestones in your poi journey. We will periodically take breaks to practice all of these ideas throughout the class, and thats when I will walk around to do quick 1-on-1 check-ins to make sure everyone is clear on what were working on. The goal is for everyone to walk away with plenty to work on in their practice.

Zeus Bigalow has coined his own techniques in fire eating and become popularized through such works. You may be familiar with stone Fox through the reference video known as The Fire Eating Trictionary Series and her work through instructing at America’s most influential flow festivals in the past season.

Meticulous Tracing
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.

Tricks: Fire Ring, Fire Heart, Lovell Light, Flamingo, Twisting Volcano, Jellyfish Volcano, Parachute, Base-jump, Reacher, Jello Shot, Grenade, Moon Grenade, Ghostbuster, Marilyn Monroe Advanced Fire Eating - Vapor Tricks Once you have made it this far into fire eating, you get to learn what is everyone’s favorite part of fire eating: Vapor Tricks. Starting with the basic techniques, like various vapor pulls, we will build up to the human candle, the staple of the fire eating world. The candle allows you plenty of time to transfer a flame from one object to another while looking mystical, magical, and beautiful. Once you get the candle down, it will open up the your fire eating world to tricks we hope to cover, like the volcano, dragon’s breath, vapor transfers, shoot the moon, and blow-a-kiss. Fire Eating Flourishes and Torchwork So you can do a few fire eating tricks. Now let’s explore how to make your fire eating look freaking phenomenal. With some added flourishes and flair, you can look like a fire god with how easily and graceful you can control not only the fire, but also the torches. With ideas from the juggling, poi spinning, club spinning, pen spinning, baton, contact staff, double staff, and even the flair bartending world, we’ll make you look like VTG-esus.

I will be focusing on sharing different ways to practice these frameworks, and how to navigate between the different families in a flow. Our main goal will be getting the class able to maintain a flow with double contact staff and work in new moves in their own practice. There is quite a bit of content that can be covered depending on how quickly the class can grasp the concepts, so I would be willing to teach this class in a two hour block if desired. 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.

The Power of Pendulums
Pendulums are the ultimate transitional tool for poi artists. This subtle idea often goes unnoticed and underused even by the most experienced spinners. Learning pendulum theory will round out your ability to move between timing and direction changes while giving you a long list of ideas to boggle the minds of anyone watching you. 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 pendulums are and what they look like. This includes the hand positions involved in pendulum theory and how pendulums work at each point. After a short amount of theory talk, we will dive into practice patterns that help us exercise pendulums one hand at a time. Well spend enough time to work on both hands in a variety of directions and different hand positions 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 - along with the different hand positions for pendulums - 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 The hand positions well focus on are the four main ones involved in diamond flowers: North (straight overhead), South (near our waist), East, and West (Left/Right) After weve played around with each, well bring it all together by focusing on how pendulums force transitions to happen and how we can take full advantage of that. 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 pendulum patterns to help everyone load up on ideas to practice.

Music Performed by: ignifluous
Rising from the flames of impromptu, late night fire spinning sessions on the beaches of Florida - music, dance, fire and flow were the genesis of ignifluous (ignis fire + fluere flow). ignifluous quickly united his passion for music and the flow arts into a fusion of electronic music sets that compliments flow artists of all styles. Following his hunger for innovative electronic music set him on a path that led him to spend three years in the thriving underground electronic bass music scene in Tokyo, Japan. It was here that he crafted his unique style for the moody and emotive sounds of Deep House combined with the full frequency response of Drum & Bass. Returning to the US with a determination to share the experiences of the Tokyo underground, he has been renegade mixing at music and flow festivals from Burning Man to Suwanee Hulaween. One thing is certain when ignifluous is on the decks - fire and flow will exist in harmony.

Danny has been making moves as a DJ for just under three years now, the amount of dedication and passion he brings to each set is one of the things that truly separates him from the rest. Whether playing his weekly Monday gig at the District of Columbia's premier cannabis event or raging protest song remixes with his partner in crime (and percussion) Kamajian 100 feet in front of the White House for Catharsis, his sets are definitely not to be missed. Melodic forms of House, Nu Disco, Breaks and G Funk are just a few of his specialties and he is beyond excited to be returning to the beautiful Cherokee Farms to help start the day with one of his infamous sun rise sets!
