Please note, I will not be teaching any tricks with fire in this class. Working with fire is very dangerous. I will cover this and explain why they must become master spinners before they can ever think about working with fire. Just so it is very clear, I will not be including the use of fire in this class.
In each section, I will teach different staff tricks in each of the four videos. I will show all the required information needed to understand the best way to perform the tricks.
You do not need any experience to join this class.
Every student once enrolled will get a free PDF copy of my published 112-page instructional book “The Book of Staff Spinning” by Johnathan Reynolds (worth $20 in the shops). This will cover all the material I will teach in class and more.
I will teach you by showing you how to do the tricks and will give you tips on how to improve your skills once you have mastered these tricks.
No required experience or previous knowledge is needed by the learners.
