Tell us all about it! We love hearing about our fellow poiers/staffies/misc. toyers succeeding with new things biggrin

It's just hard to keep up with it all sometimes, so if we keep it together you'll be certain to get a little feedback.



here a pat on the back in advance from me

Posted:Pique turns and pirouettes. Basically, you just stall, reverse direction, raise the poi as you turn, and exit into a corkscrew then into that one thingie with the name I can never remember.

Posted:I'm super excited because I finally just learned how to do a low wave and a behind the head wave. It took me a few tries but I got it! Yay! And I've started working on some transitions to get me in and out of different moves, so now I can actually dance through a whole song without having to stop in between moves. I must say, I've never been more excited or had mor fun learning something as I am about learning poi spinning. It rocks my pants off.

I love that feeling. Last week I stood around giggling like a schoolgirl as I discovered how purposefully control hyperloop throws. I must have stood there for half an hour playing with the same move over and over. biggrin

erm... calling it that because i'm not 100% sure of the right name... but I think it's the inverted atomic weave. Was covered in a workshop by fenfire at last PLAY... confirmation anyone?
