FlowShop: Poi with nashedpoiiitato

May 2, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Event Series Event Series (See All)

Join us at FlowShop this week for an ALL LEVELS POI WORKSHOP with nashedpoiiitato!

** POI: Combos & Variations**

This class will cover a variety of poi tricks and transitions catered to the interest and skill level of the students. There will be lots of extra poi available for students to use during the class, including a special set created by UltraPoi specially for this workshop! She will also be selling LED poi by UltraPoi, stickers, and FlowStars at the event.

nashedpoiiitato fell in love with spinning fire right at the start of COVID. What better way to practice throwing flames around than a time when everyone is locked inside anyways? She couldn’t put her poi down and seemed to greet the sunrise every morning with soot all over her face. She is so happily addicted to this dance expression and loves to share that light with others. From choreographing fire performances, to teaching in multiple platforms, and of course performing every chance she gets, she loves spreading the love that this art has given her.

***Please be sure to wear a well fitting mask when you come to FlowShop! ***

Thanks for helping us keep our community safe and accessible to all. We will have extra masks for folks if you forget.

Class starts at 6:30 and goes until ~7:45. Open jam is open to everyone starting at 7:45 until 9pm!

Cost: Pay-What-You-Can, $10-35 suggested
