Out of Studio, off on Tour…?

I’m moving out of the studio at the end of this month. It’s been quite a ride, but it just isn’t working out financially. I just don’t want to be the super-star teacher yet, and I have to teach too much to pay for everything, which isn’t leaving me enough time for practice and taking lessons in the other art forms I want to study. I made some wonderful friends this year, and I feel like I’m a lot less naive than I was a year ago.

The good news is that I have found an even better studio, on Salt Spring Island, where I can host poi retreats. It’s an 1800 square foot dance studio with 30 foot ceilings! First poi retreat will likely be the end of November, or thereabouts.

And starting mid-September, the Great Canadian Poi Adventure! My little brother and I are travelling across Canada. I’ll be teaching poi lessons in various cities. More details on that in a few weeks.

Ok, back to panicking about how much I have to do over the next 8 days.
