Fire Fans, Mondays, starting April 2, 8:30 - 9:30pm w/ Valentina Fire Fan Choreography: The perfect marriage of dance and tech! We will build a choreography each week and the moves presented in the choreo will be drilled / taught that week. It is expected that you have some experience with fans and with fire dancing. I would also love for you to attend the belly dance class(es) that happen before this class to get your dance technique honed. This is not an entry level class! We will switch off from learning the choreo in the Dance Place classroom to going outdoors and working on the choreo on fire at Fiesta Island. The song we'll be working to is this one: Sign up: Level 1 Hoop Dance, Wednesdays, starting April 4, 6:30 - 7:30pm w/ Lola Hoop Darling Hooping is a fun and creative way to work out and express yourself. An increasingly popular way to exercise, hooping is also a new form of dance and performance art. Tone your core, arms, legs and gluts while getting a cardio work out, learning a new skill, increasing your coordination and having FUN while you do it! You will not feel like you're burning 600 calories per hour as you challenge yourself to continue learning the endless amount of tricks and dance moves the hoop has to offer. Hoops will be available to borrow in class and can be purchased from so you can practice at home! Sign up: Intro to Fire Dancing: Poi, Wednesdays, starting April 4, 7:30 - 8:30pm w/ Steve Bags This class will guide you through the basics of learning poi. You will be expected to purchase your own tool and bring it to class each week. From simple turns to more advanced moves like weaves, reels, fountains and flowers. Learn to have fun moving around and dancing with your poi. We will mainly be focusing on technique but will also cover the logistics, safety and protocol involved in lighting your poi on fire. On the last day of class we will meet at an outdoor location to light up our poi! Sign up: *There are no refunds. *There must be 10 people signed up for these classes to run.
