Posted:Have, in all this craziness of new moves missed out something?

Currently, with Poi & staff, we only use 2 planes - helicopter or wall / horizontal or verticle.

Can we use other planes (45 degrees) and would they look good if we could?

There's the "atom move" (or really fast over head crossed butterfly type thing) which makes an atom sign (un-suprisingly) but no others I can think of...

Posted:I'm kinda confused.. 3 planes... would be your length... width.. and heigth... i.e. right and left side loops (weave)... front and back loops (windmill)... up and down (corkscrews)...

am I missing something.. I know a lot of people wanna lump front and side together.. but they aren't the same if you want to get all 3-d..

or are you tlaking something more...

Posted:Durbs check out the recent discussion we had on planes in this thread (link at the bottom)

It got me thinking about planes, and about the huge number of planes that exist within a circle, if you take the though to it's seemingly logical conclusion - there are no planes, but instead our Poi Dance off and around the circle that surrounds us.
