Posted:Hello thereI have been swinging the poi for a couple of months now, but have fallen into a rut and think i need to see people doing their thing. So concerning wednesday nights could someone tell me what Ceres is, does it still start at 7 and what type of performances would be in mind for the troupe. Also is the Concentrate shindig on every friday and what time would that be.TankyouI have no witty tag line

Posted:Hija all!Thanks to everyone whose been joining us over the last few months. The fire nights have really been taking off and there's some great talent here in Melbourne!Wednesday nights will be running for as long as the weather permits, and I'm trying to find a sheltered spot for those dark and stormy nights when winter begins to set in... As we've had some interest from people needing twirlers for shows etc., we'll be starting early (6.30pm) for people interested in learning some choreographed moves with fire. If need be we'll do Tuesdays as well for rehearsals only. Please email me if you're interested. Thanks again to the twirlers and drummers. You guys rock! XX Tjoni

)Strange about juggle jam, there are hardly any twirlers at juggle jam when i go! it's literally impossible to twirl anything in that one room with so many group/club jugglers! Besides, Edinborough Gardens costs nothing to enter!!

Posted:there are lots of twirlers when i go to juggle jam but me and the other twirlers also juggle, ride unicycles and play with diablo. so we don't twirl there much. i would be at the gardens more but i am waiting for Toni to get back. so she can test me for my Queen Scout. i also have school the next day so my parents are getting a bit anoyed with me always being out.***pete
