You do not need any experience to join this class. I will teach you by showing you how to do the tricks as well as give you tips on how to improve when you get them.
There will be a lot of class interaction.
In this class I will teach the following topics in two sections:
Introducing the poi
How to hold your poi
How long should my poi be
Some other types of poi
Single hand tricks to teach planes and control.
Parallel Time: small circles, planes, big circles, carry turn from forwards... and back again, inward and outward circles
Reels: shoulder reels, rewind, hip reels, reel turn from forwards... and back again, linking reels, linking using the matching point, continuous turns, hitting yourself and getting tangled.
Split Time: small circles, big circles, split reels, linking split reels, the windmill, the giant windmill

Please note I will not be teaching any tricks with fire in this class. Working with fire is very dangerous. I will cover this and explain why they must become master spinners before they can ever think about working with fire. Just so it is very clear, I will not be including the use of fire in this class.
