I am slowly working my way through playpoi.com‘s poi lessons. In the past, I have just randomly clicked through user-uploaded, how-to videos on homeofpoi.com (which are also awesome), but playpoi’s videos have continuity and progression. I have decided to start working my way through their series as I have time and poi urges. I am at the very beginning, just a few videos into Poi-fu, which covers poi fundamentals. It has already given me a lot to think about and some good exercises to work on. Some videos could even apply to other dance forms, or life in general. For example, one I watched recently not only teaches great arm pathways to add poi to later, it is great for general coordination. Give it a try! It’s fun!
I love playpoi!
They didn’t have all the beginner lessons with the two tracks taped out on the floor when I started but I went over them anyway, I have to say my spinning improved ten-fold just by chalking out two lines!
Would LOVE to go to Bali wouldn’t you?
Shame we aren’t close to each other, I don’t know any dedicated spinners in my area and I’m just DYING to learn partner poi.
Have you seen this video yet by loooops – if this doesn’t tempt you nothing will =)
So NICE to chat to find another spinner on here =)
Love the dancing video and the photos, so cool =)
This is awesome. I hadn’t seen it before. Thanks for sharing!
I’d love to learn partner poi! I have a friend in town here who also enjoys the spinning, but we’re both busy, so it’s hard to find time when we can get together and practice.
You’re so welcome, its’ one of my favorites =) If you get the chance to with your friend Playpoi have done some partner Poi lessons, really easy to follow.
