About This Activity

Description

The word "poi" originates from the Maori tribe of New Zealand and literally means "Ball on a string". In modern times, poi are made of special kevlar wicks, dipped in fuel and spun while one fire! This amazing form of dance is remarkably easy to learn even for the very clumsy (such as myself). It's also a great form of exercise and can be a joyful and transformative adventure. Over the course of our six week, one hour per week class, you'll learn a variety of moves and tricks and how to chain them together into a fun, improvisational dance flow. The series ends with a special fire safety course and optional lighting up experience, where in a very safety conscious setting, each student will have the opportunity to try dancing with fire. There's no pressure to light up - even if you decide if dancing with fire is not your thing, you'll come away with a fun new activity that is uniquely you.
