This is the annual Halloween fundraising show for Vesta, Nanaimo’s contemporary circus and fire performance troupe. Funds raised assist with the rental of our winter practice studio.

Vesta is internationally acclaimed, performing internationally with tours of both Asia and the USA. Their spectacular fire shows have been the highlight of many local events such as the VIEX and Winterfest. Vesta also runs summer camps, and teaches ongoing circus lessons for kids and adults at Nanaimo Gymnastics School. They are funded via ArtStarts in Schools as ‘artist in residence’ to teach and perform in schools- this year teaching grade 2’s and 4’s at Coal Tyee Elementary.

Please share this event with your friends, family and networks! Thank you for your support of Arts and Culture in your community!

Playpoi Retreat, June 7-16, Lasqueti Island

Lasqueti Island, BC, Canada: Special Let’s-Make-Some-Great-Videos-Plus-Play-A-Lot-Of-Poi Retreat!

Lasqueti Island, BC June 7-16 2014

The idea: Join Nick Woolsey, Vesta Entertainment, and guest teachers on a beautiful rainforest island to spend 8-days dividing our time between the following activities:

  • Before breakfast: Yoga and other morning exercises
  • After breakfast: Making fun, silly, and super useful videos about learning poi
  • In the afternoon: Diving into more advanced concepts of dance, rhythm, choreography, and moves
  • In the evenings: Spinning poi, enjoying THE BIG SAUNA, and having an awesome time,
  • In between the rest: Being blown away by the beauty of the gulf islands, eating good food, and running around in the rain forest a lot.

Dates: June 7 – 16 2014

Cost: $800CAD for the whole retreat, including 8-days of amazing organic food! However, you all need to help make the videos: It’s a collaborative work-exchange retreat! This is for those who really like this idea. Please don’t attend because you want to come to a “cheaper-than-usual” retreat. I’m really expecting you to chip in. Make sense?

Prerequisites: For this retreat it will be best if you’re comfortable with all the poi basics.
Other notes: Yes, bring other toys! (fire-gear, hoops, levi-wands, juggling balls, slack-lines, unicorns, etc.). Also bring rain gear in case we get rain, swim suits, hiking boots, bug spray, and anything else that may help you enjoy 8 days in a temperate coastal rain-forest paradise.
