Type of event: Workshops
In this workshop we will be mixing elements of tribal fusion bellydance into poi flow learning how to combine these two very different styles of movement. We will start with making our own simple pair of practice-pois from a pair of old stockings and two tennis balls – easy but functional. It’s also possible to bring your existing pois if you already own some. When we all have a pair of pois Masha will teach you some basic poi spinning tricks and also give tips for practicing important poi skills at home like plain control for example. Then we will proceed to practice some bellydance moves before combining what we have learned and making belly-poi flow combo’s. Masha will also give you some tips towards dancing with veil pois at the end of the workshop. This workshop is focussed on poi basics for practical reasons, but if you practice with poi first, veil poi becomes a fun next step to explore. Expect to find your flow, laugh a lot, challenge your sense of coordination in every way and of course an occasional tennisball hitting your face.
Open Level: All levels welcome, with or without experience in bellydance or poi.
