Because you haven't educated them yet...

Why? Surely it'd still be fun, still be a dance, still be something that made you smile.

in NZ, Poi spinning is much more common and well known than the rest of it.

Almost everyone thinks that Fire Eating is what we call Fire Breathing, they thinking juggling is something that can be done forever without dropping and staff is the people who work for a company...but then again, it might different off these here shores...

yes i agree, but you know you have that feeling that somethings coolbecause your the only one(or one of the select few) who knows about it, like underground music, Poi is cool like that for me, aswell as being cool because of the reasons you mention.
if Poi got to be as mainstream as Poi being sold in marks and spencer, that kind of thing, it suddeny becomes less cool for me. still fun though
