Posted:no doubt, if you can manage to do a 4 beat corkscrew and try doing a couple of rotations (If you spin fast enough you can actually do it forever but you have to train yourself not to get dizzy) seems like your holding the poi over your head for the longest time.

Posted:Yeah - it is actually one of my favorite moves..
If you break each half of the corksrew by holding the poi out at arms length and spinning your body 180 degrees (or 360 if you can manage it quickly enough) the poi do a huge arc due to their centripetal force and then you bring them in again to the corkscrew etc.. etc.. keep going until you collapse of dizzyness - hehe

The punters go wild.

Posted:I hit someone spreading my arms like that one time. The person just freaked out like they were going to die. When will people learn it isn't as dangerous as it looks.

Posted:True that. I think someone once said that even if you are doing the simplest of moves, you get so much better crowd reaction if you scrunch up your face and contort your body a little. Something else that's good for kicks is to do a wrap, and then stall for a second before you unwrap. LOL! They think you are on fire, and everyone takes about a half step forward. Fun!

Posted:Lol......"everyone takes a step forwards cos they think you're on fire!" tee hee....

Anyway - I like spinning in the opposite direction to the 4 beat corkscrew I'm doing - it sort of lifts it up over you and onto the other side as you arch your back and looks pretty good too. Bit confusing sometimes though.

She does look mighty sexy when she's spinning though. I have to admit.....
