Team Poi [21 Mar 2010|12:57pm]

I'm starting to get into team poi, and dug up the following videos (besides those I've seen here). These aren't all team poi-some are just examples for us to look at. Does anyone else have a good recommendation of what to look at or resources (besides those listed on the info page for this group)? We wish to specify in poi where we must be perfectly in sync with each other and have developed a couple of moves I haven't seen other people do that are pretty hard (fire, maybe not yet). Anyhow, I'd really like to know if anyone here has resources.

Just plain a good soloist:

A duet, not quite in sync, but very playful.

Mostly together, playful, and interactive with each other:

More in sync, slightly cabaret?

Almost perfectly in sync:

Poi videos I took myself [09 Dec 2009|11:48pm]

[ mood | tired ]

Wow, it's... rather dead in this community, don't you think? Time to liven things up a bit with three videos of two different spinners. If it's okay, I can start with two glowstringing videos.

right this way for those other two videosCollapse )

I hope that was enjoyable.

Question About Poi Spinning Video [29 Apr 2009|01:52pm]
I was wondering if anyone here has used or has heard about Michelle Joyce's Poi Spinning for Beginners dvd instructional, found here:
http://www.amazon.com/Spinning-Beginners-instruction-Belly-Dancers/dp/B000VU2T8U/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1241027532&sr=8-1 .

I am especially interested in it because it has a section on voi and incorporates belly dance moves in with the poi. Were it not for that, I would simply stick with learning poi off the many videos on Youtube.

So, I'm just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this particular dvd, if they think it's any good, so-on.

Thanks in advance! :)

Hey folks:

Long time putterer, first time poster, etc. Got my start with flag poi at a Ren fair and have since made my move to fire. First online community I joined was at www.domorepoi.com. I go back today to look (haven't been there in a while) and...Do More Poi seems to be...gone!

Anyone else frequent this board and maybe know what happened?

worlds best poi spinner [23 Mar 2009|07:54am]


Ok, I am asking for opinions.

Who do you think is the worlds best poi spinner?
Why, is it their show, skill level, personality? What makes them the best?

Please if you disagree with someone else's opinion show that opinion the respect you would ask us to show yours.

*blows dust off community* [31 Dec 2008|12:41pm]

Greetings from Seattle! After looking at videos and saying "I should try that" for almost a year, I finally ordered a set of basic poi from Home of Poi. Hopefully, I will manage not to damage myself too badly! I can tell just from how stiff I am (the reason I'm restarting yoga) it'll be a while before I try any even approaching fire.

I was just wondering, is there anyone else in the Seattle area? What few local resources or groups I've found online are all defunct now.
