Staff workshop will be dedicated to both single staff and double staff basics combined with body movement and martial arts positions.
With double staff we’ll go through some basic tosses.
We can get into some acrobatics with staff as well if you will be interested (such as: cartwheels, butterflies, barrel jumps)
It is recommended to have one long staff for single staff moves (around 140cm) and a lighter, shorter pair of staff for double staff moves (100-120cm).
Workshop is suitable for both beginners and intermediate.
NOTE: if you require a practice staff in class please inform me, I will need to arrange/provide (at no extra cost unless you wish to purchase one)
ALL LEVELS are welcome!
Saturday April 29, 5:30pm – 7:30pm

Facilitator – Vojta Stolbenko
“Long time ago in a city far far away..”
A hyper-active and unstoppable child was born in Prague. Vojta has always loved all kinds of movement. During his childhood, yet unsure about what he was looking for, he’s been taking many different classes, such as martial-arts, yoga and theatre. When he finally saw poi spinning for the first time, he got totally mesmerized. He knew, that poi was what he was looking for the whole time. His life has changed, the passion was found. Slowly he started developing in dancing with other fire tools too, and tried to focus on exploring the circles with dance and body movement. He kept on practicing yoga and acrobacy as well. Music has always been his main source of inspiration and technique. Vojta has been playing drum kit since he was 7 years old. Indeed, drumming and object manipulation is connected. He never stopped drumming – in fact he has studied drums on a Jazz Conservatory, that enormously enriched his musical skills. There is no good dancer without music sensibility.
“From the gym on the stage”
His talent was first recognized by the group Pyroterra, that he performed with for many years, and partly is cooperating still nowadays. Together, they’ve done hundreds of shows. They even participated the Czech’s got Talent show, made it twice to the semi-finals with two different projects, and performed in many other TV shows.
During last 5 years, Vojta has performed in India, USA, Angola, Nepal, Thailand, Malaysia, Ireland, GB, Switzerland, Italy, Malta, France and many other countries. Many times he has shown his skills on a number of TV channels – see them in the references.
On the autumn of 2014 his first fire spinning festival was organized. It’s name is Roztoč fest, and it’s getting more and more popular amongst the fire spinning community. It takes place every 6 months in Prague. Check out “Events” for more info about this festival.
