Join world-renowned poi instructor Ben "Drex" Drexler for a very special weekend of poi workshops!

Topics in Poi--an a la carte series of 1-hour Poi workshops over topics for beginners, advanced spinners, and everyone in between!

Each class is available for $25 or all 3 can be attended for $60 ($20/class)

2 PM - Fundamentals of Tech

Intimidated by tech? This class is centered around the idea that if we work up to a trick by starting with small, simple movements and gradually building up their complexity, anyone can learn difficult tech and apply these lessons to learning a variety of tricks they encounter. This class covers linear extensions, creating tricks by chaining together straight lines into ever more complicated and beautiful patterns.

3 PM - Introduction to Sticky Hybrids

It’s easy to get stuck with hybrids by focusing on mashing up patterns, but more interesting things happen when we start to think of them as consisting of relationships between hands and poi. This course will introduce a few of my favorite sticky hybrids and how to transition between them!

4 PM - The Art of Prop Performance

Performance doesn't just have to be your three favorite tricks in front of a crowd of people--you can say something with it. This class applies a lot of the lessons I've learned in the modern dance world over the course of the past three years to make performances with any prop move beyond trick showcases to statements by the choreographer. Come learn to tell a story or share an idea through your craft!
