Poi is a form of dance, where weights on the ends of tethers are swung through rhythmical patterns. Join renowned poi-teacher Nick Woolsey to learn and master the fundamental moves and transitions of poi! Move your body while enriching your mind!
Each section of the course includes 12-20 videos, guiding you through Nick's proven system. The lessons will cover many moves such as weaves, windmills, butterfly patterns, buzzsaws, and fountains, along with techniques for developing skill with turns, sequences, and transitions.
For those of you who already know some moves, this course is a great way to deepen your control of planes, rhythm, and freedom of movement, and to discover and learn all the moves missing from your poi movement vocabulary.
