Beginning Poi

I will have practice poi available for people who do not possess their own. I will be teaching basic beginning moves with poi. This is intended for people who have never spun before or have just started.

Fire Safety & Fire Dancing

I am going to teach fire safety by talking about the responsibility of fire dancers, safety equipment, different kinds of fuel, fire spotters, and everything else important to safety. I will also lead demonstrations by lighting a fire poi on fire and putting it out with either duvetyne or a wet towel. I will then have people put out the props themselves. If Jason and I work out making fire dancing possible for Starwood 08 through Brushwood then this will be required to dance with fire. I will give out bracelets to people who finish the workshop. I will need two or three slots to do this workshop.
