Posted:do any of you remember a thread i posted a little while back about poi in a circus/gymnastics display? well ive got to think of ideas for our artistic gymnastic one now. the theme is circus so we can do anything related to that (its pretty relaxed though). the setup is a soft floor over a basketball court (stadium seating!!) with no flashy lighting or anything so we have to wow everyone just with whatever we do.
we can do just about anything, tumbling, acrobatics, juggling, poi, using equipment, so let you imaginations run WILD!
any suggestions about music, links to acrobatic sites, cool capoeira or breakdancing moves will be much appreciated! like i said, we're dealing with gymnasts here so we can do pretty much anything...

Richee, are you talking about where you do a backsault off someones hands...with poi? that sounds cool, what are you doing with the poi? if ive completely misunderstood you, that sounds cool anyway!

Oh, dear, you're getting dusty (grabs feather duster and pulls Ad out of the room) We're going to have to fix that!
