Posted:hello people! My name is Nicole. I've been practicing poi for 2 days and I am soooo sore! I have two bruises on my legs, a bruise on my stomach when I got the breath knocked out of me, my shoulders and arms are really stiff and sore, but most of all...I love it! When I stumbled on this site and looked around, I was amazed when how unique and beautiful this style of dance is. Hopefully I'll be buying the video soon and showing my friends my new steps! =)------------------Video games don't affect kids. If pacman affected us as kids, we'd be running around darkened rooms, munching pills, and listening to repitive music.
