It's good to see that there are some fellow poi spinners in France. I am from Paris originally. I've lived in Boston for 3 years now but i'll move back probably some time next year. Hopefully the poi scene will have picked up by then (or maybe it's better that it doesn't because, as Dask said, we then remain a rarity).I only spoke to one guy who does poi in France and he said it was limited to the rave scene ("les teufeurs"). I'd love to spin fire in certain places of Paris, say under the bridges of the Seine...Nomad

Posted:I enjoyed some beautiful fire sessions with a friend from India on the Pont Neuf at night ... Beautiful !!!I heard some people do it in St Michel too... anyway... we need some action in the city of light. Being a rarity is not the most exciting thing for me, I'd rather have some nice dynamic with other poyers...Cassandra

Posted:Hi there,Nomad: as you said before the only few poiers I've seen in France are from the free-party scene.I come from this scene too as I think cassandra do BUTsadly this scene is dying right now in France there's a new law to forbid free-parties since a few weeks now.IMHO The (small) french poi scene will suffer from this law

Posted:You are right Dimitri, there is some nice spot in Les Halles, but I've never seen spinners so far ... I'll just go and open the spinner section of the place

Otehr than that, there is also along the seine river by the quai st bernard near the institut du monde arabe a very nice spot for spinning, I go there sometimes - weather permitting- and saw some performers / jogglers as well. The pont des arts is not bad either.Nomad, you are right, finding a dark enough place in Paris , city of light is indeed a problem !!! However, it is just such a good feeling that ... well.. I just do it wherever and despite the light.Went to the Bois de Boulogne last week end and had a cool session, "taught" to some friends who had never spun , all in the sun and with a group of excellent drummers as a background music : heaven !!!Paris feels a bit lonely sometimes and I'm eager to meet some of my fellow spinner ... so whoever is coming to Paris ... please let me know !!!!

Posted:FYI, I had a CRAZY NIGHT last saturday. Went again to the QUAI ST BERNARD in Paris, at the foot of the Institut du Monde Arabe, by the Seine river....Thought I'd spin some fire with a few friends BUT, suddenly, as if summer had made them all appear out of nowhere, I heard drummers , saw a crowd and saw spinners, firedancers, fire jugglers, fire eaters /breathers ... AMAZING... just a spontaneous gathering. So We joined the party and had an amazing time. thought I'd let you know that there is some nice spinning in Paris after all...

Posted:C'est HALLUCINANT ! really breathtaking place .No problem lighting up whatsoever, kerdane is flowing everywhere ... NO PROBLEM, only good vibrations and fun. It was crowded you would not beleive, but there is something like a stage where only the spinners stand and we are spinning one after the other or in "duo" or "trio". the drummers where damn good too, they were so much paying attention to our rythm of dancing and following us, then they'd take the lead and we'd follow their crazy rythm... it was such an exchange... woooooooooooooooooooooooooooo !!! I think they do it throughout the summer everytime there is some nice weather on fridays and saturdays too. Again, real real nice ! You'd all love that for sure. i am going there again next Week end !!!Shine onCassandra

Posted:This is a question to all the French twirlers: (or anyone who knows the answer!)My mom recently came back from a trip to France, and she told me about a town called "Blua". I'm sure that's spelled very wrong. That's my question. Does ANYBODY know what I'm talking about??

"Bloo-ah", "Bleauagh", whatever. I'm butchering the beautiful french language. My father jokingly calls it "Blew-up". If you have any clue what town I mean, please tell me the correct way to spell it! Jeannie------------------" preciso amar as pessoas como seNo houvesse amanh."

I will hopefully be participating in the Paris Hitch (hitch hiking from Bath to Paris for charity) again this year. I am keen to do some spinning when I am there but we meet under the Eiffel Tower so I doubt Le Gendames (sp mistake probably - I know) would be too happy, so it would be nice to try and meet up and find somewhere that we could break out a little parrafin. If not I will have to make sure I pack the practice poi so that I can have a play under the tower
