Poi

Instructor: Kieran
Participants: Open to all

Kieran started spinning poi five summers ago, and has found near endless fun its pursuit. Starting originally with basically tennis balls in socks, his progression eventually led him through LED pairs to starting to specialize with the use of fire. It has only been roughly a year that he has been spinning staff, yet a lot of the motions and circular function of poi can be transferred easily to the use of staff. He happily shares his passion for flow arts whenever he gets a chance through performing, but is looking forward to the chance to help others get into the art of poi and staff spinning through the workshops he`s offering at Alweezgrooven summer of 2017.

Sensual Touch

Instructor: Caroi LaRousse QuiEst Douce
Participants: Open to all

In our era, touch has very little place, it is often associated to seduction and sexuality. However, touch is a very important sense! Even before we learn to talk, we communicate by touch. An example is a mother with her child. We lost the knowledge of how to touch, and even more how to touch with calmness, gentleness, and sensuality. Touch can help someone that is sick or in distress to be calmer and more at ease.

In this workshop, we will discover this sense through two parts :
1) touching with hands and 2) touching with tools that we can use.

This workshop is open to everyone (women, men and children) and you do not need to be accompanied. The exercises are done on oneself or with another consenting person. You just need to bring your smile and body!

In the part “touching with hands”, we will see some basic massage techniques, how to play in different types of hair and which products to use on the skin. In the part of “Tools”, I will demonstrate numerous objects that can be used on skin and hair.
