--------THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT------------------------

Learn the ins and outs of Russian fan spinning!  Russian fans, also known as ‘big ring’ fans describes ring grip on the fan.  This design allows for for fluid flow and smooth grip changes.  Learn movement that is unique to Russian fans and inspired by Russian style spinning.  

Poi and mini double hoops are strong foundations for Russian fans, so this class is ideal for spinners already familiar with double hoops or poi. However, this is a beginner friendly class and it will be informative and fun even if this is the first spinning class you've ever been to. If you have mini hoops or poi, please bring them to class.

Note: Russian fans are heavy, usually heavier than US style fans.  As such, having lots of arm muscle endurance built up before the class will really help combat muscle fatigue.

Tricks Covered

  • Weaves: 2 beat, 3 beat, 1.5 beat, reverse of each
  • ‎Crossers: fountain, hug weave, Traced fountain  split opposite windmill (Mexican weave)
  • ‎Flowers: 4 petal in spin flower (head iso/waist iso/smooth transition), 4 petal in spin flower segments (quarters, eighths).
  • ‎Transitions
  • Combos

Do I need my own fans?

There will be extra fans to practice with at the workshop.  There will also be fans for sale, details coming soon...
