Partner Poi!


Pictured above are dance partners The Amazing Zihni (left) and GlitterGirl (right) in this photo taken by Waldemar Horwat. 

Join them in their upcoming Partner Poi 8 week workshop where they will teach you the secrets they used to create their performances, and maybe you too can do it blind folded, even if it is only one of the two people that's unable to see.

The first few weeks will focus on one poi per person and then during the second part of the workshop we'll focus on two handed work. You do not need to bring your own partner and we will have you switch partners in class to develop more skills in each student. 

Note: Students must use beanbag poi! 

To encourage practice with partners, we have special discounts for two people to sign up together and the class is half full already so register now before you miss out. We haven't done this workshop for 2 years and likely won't do it again for at least a year so if you have any desire to play together check this out.

Happy Father's Day! 

It's that time of year where we celebrate the men who contributed to our lives as fathers-- be it in the literal sense of our DNA, the more visceral experience of parenting or both. Here's a special shout out to our dad's and father's everywhere who helped us become who we are in life. 

As part of our tribute to Father's Day, we're releasing the first of the videos from the 2014 show (even though we haven't finished getting everything from the 2013 Fire Dancing Expo on line yet) a bit out of order in honor of this special father/son duet between Celsius Maximus and his son Maxim, pictures above in this photo by Brian Pope. 

Celsius, who has appeared in at least a half dozen shows in Union Square, took a little time to catch up with GlitterGirl and you can read about about the artist profile and interview, including some touching words from Celsius about how working on this fire dancing duet has changed his relationship with his son. 

While we're talking about father's, it's a good time to note this article we found recently: 7 Reasons Men Should do Yoga: Gentlemen, Get on Your Mats!  Of course, for all your fire dancers out there, yoga is a fabulous cross training technique that will help with flexibility and keeping muscles open for movement.

Looking for a gift for your father? Sign him up for our one night drop-in introductory class on June 30. Or, Is he really adventurous? Consider our Zero to Fire in 4 Hours workshop and introduce him and bunch of his friends to the joy of fire, or bring the family and heat up your next family event!
