Probably a bit far for you to travel, but check out

http://www.thecrucible.org/

I think sometimes they offer longer weekend (and hence few sessions) courses.

Lessons

Postby Zig-Zag » Sun Sep 28, 2003 12:15 pm

If you are willing to put out some money I or someone I know would be willing to travel to you for lessons. In two hours I can absolutely put you two weeks ahead of where you are. If you can find a few friends who are also interested in lessons and gather up a small amount of cash mainly just to pay for Gas, food, and to make it worth my time to travel to whatever snowy hill you live on. And despite many telling me that I was the best poi spinner on the playa I know that to be false. I'm merely one of the best, but with a knack for teaching that often frustrates me. Moves that took me weeks, and many bruises to figure out I can now show in a manner of minutes. If interested you can contact me at Fireflight42@yahoo.com
I thought I knew how to party before I went to Black Rock city.
