Single Veil Poi Technique & Combos with Amorina Stone Friday Mornings at 10:30 AM at Arabesque World Dance
Veil Poi also known as “Voi” are a beautiful flow art prop that many belly dancers have fallen in love with. Voi are an evolved version of poi which originated from the Maori culture in New Zealand.(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poi_(performance_art)#M%C4%81ori_culture )
Often we see poi dancers swinging the chain with a ball at the end on fire but with voi instead of fire there is a silk veil. The technique is similar for both but because the veil is longer than the flame it requires a little more finesse.
In this class we will be using a single voi and practicing technique and combinations that allow you to dance as though you were only dancing with a veil but then smoothly transitioning to that added poi flair. This will be an amazing arm work out and is a great class to take before trying to take on double voi. Once you understand single voi technique then double will come very quickly!
