This is a 6-week poi series. It is designed to go further in depth with some of the basics from the beginner series, but will not exclude total beginners. We will be covering many ideas that would give newbies a lot to take home to start their fire journey. The class will touch on some simple poi theory (the technical breakdown of timing and direction), body mechanics (how to move with your prop), and common terminology. We will go deeper into exploring flowers and weaves and throw in some fun tricks and ideas along the way. The flow of the series will bear in mind the overall progress of the class and cater to what individuals need as we go. The 6th class will be longer and at an offsite, outdoors location. We will cover fire safety and give students a chance to spin fire for the first time with experienced safety and supervision. Instructor Ellie Sorokin is a member of Pyrotechniq, a Chicago-based fire troupe with over 30 years of combined performance and teaching experience between its members. The Pyros have worked with a variety of student populations. Ellie has taught group and private lessons in Chicago as well as Spark, Kinetic Fire and Fire Drums fire festivals over the last 5 years. Pyrotechniq regularly performs nationally, regionally at the Sukhava Bodhe Festival and locally as sponsors of the Chicago Full Moon Jam held at Foster Street Beach each month. Series tuition is $135, which includes all props and materials. Drop-ins to the first two sessions are welcome for $25 per class. Preregistration and prepayment is required to reserve your space. The class runs from 7:45 - 9pm! Participants must be 18 years of age or older. The class requires a minimum of 8 students to run. Sign up now to help ensure the class runs and see you there!

ABOUT PYROTECHNIQ
CONTACT

Pyrotechniq provides a well-rounded, fully-immersed instructional experience for every student in the tools we offer. We cover all the various aspects that exist in the art of object manipulation ranging from the technical, to the beautiful, and from the physical to the ethereal. Dance and body awareness is equally as important in fire dance as proper technique. There is also a recognizable difference in the necessary elements of spinning for personal growth and enjoyment, and spinning for an audience. All of these factors will be taken into consideration with every student enrolled. We take into serious account the dangers involved in dealing with the element of fire and the legalities of fire play in various environments. Upon request, we can also build a customized workshop for larger groups fitted to the desired tool, schedules, purpose and interest of the students. Lessons invariably include elements of body movement, technical knowledge, and fire safety.
