What is poi?

Poi is an art form that originated with the Maori in New Zealand. The Maori would swing balls on cords while dancing to music, possibly as a means of increasing strength and flexibility. The art of poi has evolved and diverged from its roots as people have become aware of all of the possible patterns that can be made with something as simple as two balls on cords. Poi also evolved as an art when it became married to the element of fire. Special poi were developed that could be lit on fire allowing the dancer to, in essence, paint the night sky with fiery patterns and trails of flame.

What is partner poi?

Partner poi is a more recent innovation in poi spinning in which two or more spinners create patterns together, often intertwining their poi and spinning around each other. This becomes particularly exciting when fire is added to the picture.

What other props do you use besides poi?

Each of our shows varies, but, in addition to poi, we also incorporate staff, double staff, hoop, fans and rope dart into our shows. Some shows include fire breathing, eating and contact fire as well.
