Posted:Hi everyone! I am Circadia and I am new to this list. I love fire and I love to dance ritually. Right now I spin poi, do body transfers, fingers, hula hoop, and am starting to learn a few staff moves. I am a college student in Olympia, Washington and the lone fire dancer in this community. Are there any gatherings in Seattle I'm missing out on? I *love* to perform! I've performed at several festivals and also solo. I've been reading past posts here and I appreciate the sense of community that radiates. Good job!I am wanting to do some serious academic study of fire performance. I am currently working on a proposal for an independent contract to travel next winter to Maui, New Zealand, and Australia to study traditional and contemporary forms of poi spinning and other fire arts. I am looking for anyone who wants to participate or who can help me connect with fire communities in those areas.much love & light,Circadia de Soleil

Posted:Such a lovely first post. Seems a shame that some git is going to come in and call points on it. But hey, if they think they're helping keep the community more friendly then who am i to argue?

Posted:Lol, yeah Cantus, I was thinking the same thing! There should be an opposite to it: Points and anti-points, much in the same way that we have musical artists and Robbie Williams.
