Tech Fans and Fans Choreography 7-Week Class Series With Ellie SoRokin’
Hey Fan Tech Enthusiasts! Wanna LEARN fan stuff? This is a lot of good info (I hope), so get ready…
I am a fire performer living in Chicago. I have been spinning for 7 years and teaching for 3 with multiple props including hoop, iso hoop, poi, staff, double staff, clubs and FANS! I spin with Pyrotechniq Fire Troupe and perform at Unbridled at Untitled/ The Fear Haunted House at Navy Pier/ Freakeasy. Sooo, I have this fans choreography that I made for and taught at Kinetic Fire and Fire Drums last year, meant for a group of people to someday perform. I really want to get that group of people to make it into something real (Real AWESOME!) in Chicago this winter/spring. I know you fan spinners are out there!! It will provide participants with a swan dive into regular practice, fun and challenging tech, body movement, choreography, memorization (hell, some of you might even get a workout 😉 and, for those that dare, a (non-fire), potentially paid performance opportunity in the springtime 😀 The 3-minute choreo was meant to focus heavily on seamlessly combining dance and prop technique and I can’t wait to have this fan dance, if you will. 😉
I am prepared and really excited to offer a 7-week Fan Tech and/or Fan Choreography class series at PNG Studios in Humboldt Park on one of two days (to be decided by YOU) in the week, scheduled to start around mid- January.
**You will need your own set of fans.

Visit We-Pay Links for more details on class breakdowns
There will be two separate, 1-hour classes. The first will focus on learning and playing with the moves and categories of moves to be worked into the choreo. The second class will focus on working those moves into choreography based heavily on combining rhythm, dance/body movement and clean prop technique.
Those interested will have the option of taking just the Tech Series or just the Choreo Series for $15 a class OR have the option of taking both for $20 total each week- That’s two hours of fans with a 30-minute break in between. A series, if purchased alone, will total $105 or $140 for the two if purchased together. If you don’t want to pay for a whole series, Drop-In’s are also welcome for $15 a class but will have to wait to see if their desired series hits the pre-pay minimum of 3. As mentioned, notification will be posted on this thread and the Facebook page on Jan 1st.
Awesome Performance Opportunity Details
I would like to take the Choreo and submit our piece for the Chicago Flow Show, happening here at the end of March. I will only submit if we have a minimum of 6 COMMITTED performers –maaaybe 4– AND only those participants that N A I L the Choreo will be invited to perform for the Flow Show, however, if we do not have enough participants or get chosen for Flow Show, I would still very much like to perform our piece elsewhere, and anyone would be welcome to join at that point, nailed or not 🙂 as there are many fun options and the piece can take as many as we can get! (Oh, and I should add that I am also interested in performing the piece elsewhere with everyone in it if we DO make flosho, so everyone that wants to gets a chance to perform 🙂
Performers for the Flow Show will probably get paid for the series of 3 shows on the weekend of Saturday March 24th. (Shows are Fri, Sat, Sun) Flow Show performers must also be available for several run-thrus with me to tighten up the loose ends (this is only if we NEED them–you will not be charged for these) in the couple of weeks leading up to the Tech Rehearsal and for the Tech Rehearsal itself on Thurs March 27th. Costuming may run approximately $10- $15 at the thrift store, max, and could take you an hour or so, but what you get paid to perform may cover a good portion of what you spend on classes, so go for the gold! 😉
LETS DO THIS, CHICAGO!
