Intro to Whip Cracking
Everyone has heard the very distinguishing sound of a whip cracking but few have experienced at their own hand. Whether or not you just want to feel like a movie character or become a whip performance artist, come and get the information you have always wanted about whips. There are so many variations given the type, the sound, the length, the speed, material and other specs of whips that simply listening in will give you the knowledge to avoid any regrets when purchasing or making a whip. The basics cracks with be covered such as the cattleman’s crack, the side arm flick and the overhead crack in the safest manner possible, so that one will learn without ever hurting themselves.

Introduction to double staff motion mechanics
 This will serve as foundation work for how to potentially move with double staffs within a 9 square grid.   What will be taught: isolation and antispins, and how they work with each other.   How this applies to 9 square theory.   An approach to spinning double staffs within the first  square without holding the prop.   What does that even mean? What would that even look like?

Everything about the Air-Wrap
My favorite trick has been the air-wrap since my first month of spinning poi. What makes it so cool to me is the fact that it took me 8 frustrating hours of raw concentration to learn. I feel I’ve analyzed every aspect of the air-wrap in depth. I’m very interested in sharing those observations! The class will break down the air-wrap to the foundational function. This will helps students to either execute the move for their first time, or clean up an already existent air-wrap. After getting everyone up to speed with clean, crisp air-wraps, we will begin finding different places to utilize the function of the air-wrap. In the course of this class I hope to enlighten students about every air-wrap I know of, as well as have a brainstorming discussion to find even more variations and movements collectively.

Chi Roll Fun-damentals!
Chi Rolls are quite possibly the most used trick in Dragon. In this class we will go over the eight core Chi Rolls. The first part of understanding all the possibilities are knowing In Spin rolls and Anti spin rolls which is knowing the relations of the staff to the spines while rolling. When the Spines are going with the staff it is In spin and when they are going against the staff they are Anti and then there's understanding when your doing neither. After that we'll Go over Isolations and extensions which are important keys to starting certain moves correctly. Being a mirror of each other, the Isolation is the action of keeping the staff completely still while in rolling motion. Extensions are the same in the static nature while simply pushing out to your left and your right. After all that we'll go over everything in reverse! Which will give a full spectrum of Chi to bond you and your Dragon together even more.

Levi-Hoop 101
We have all heard of a wand that levitates, yes? How about a Hula Hoop? In this workshop, we will learn how to attach a short or long string to our hula hoops, and allow it to stabilize, and levitate in a horizontal or vertical orientation. We will take this information and learn how to incorporate what we already know with a hula hoop. We will also focus on a variety of string anchors that will give us more freedom in our movements. (Neck Anchors, Split String techniques, Hand Anchors, etc.) I will have extra hoops and wands, and all skill levels are welcome to come play! Each person who attends this workshop, will be provided with a string length of their choice to take with them and keep practicing! It will be most helpful to have a hoop that has a push button connection, but I will have plenty of extras.

Be There & Be Square
 This class breaks the classic (circular) mold for pattern spinning. In this class, I’ll ensure a student’s understanding of “The Grid,” as well as teach a multitude of conventions to transition between different points/positions on the grid. The majority of this class will be taught on wall plane to convey these concepts in the most foundational form. Using IVA, students will venture onto different planes to create related concepts. Some of the “conventions” I’ll be covering will be the use of point isolation, slides, elevators, head taps, isolation lines, and contact ideas. The class will include an agenda of priorities to consider while perfecting an aesthetic. Some focuses will be:         “Firmness” Aesthetic of Prop         Haltedness upon arriving at a position         Charlie’s 9 Square theory application         General Crispness I hope to see each student walk away playing with and effectively exploring the ‘right’ side of pattern spinning.

Leviwand Tech That the levitation wand is both a static and kinetic prop makes it an extremely dynamic tool with an exiting variety of capabilities-- most of which have gone largely unexplored. In this class, we will uncover some secrets of the wand, revisiting the childhood days of cat's cradles and Jacob's ladders-- let's play with string! Whether you just started wanding, or you are an intermediate/advanced levitation wand spinner, this class has something to benefit your flow, opening up new ways to play by learning how to transition among these movements and between them and your regular spinning style. (Highly recommend removing your finger loop for this class)
