At its most basic, "poi" are simply weights attached to the ends of cords or chains that are spun to create visual patterns and shapes. While the history of Poi originates with the traditional dance of the Maori people of New Zealand, today it is a continuously evolving art form that combines complex body movement and object manipulation, and is often performed with LEDs or fire.

In this workshop, we'll start with a discussion of terminology and then explore the basics of poi spinning. We'll learn about direction and timing as well as body movement and control, and then dive in to some foundational moves including reels, weaves, butterflies, stalls and pendulums. (We will NOT light anything on fire. Sorry!)

No experience necessary - this workshop is open to all!
