Posted:Hi there just contemplating doing a bit of busking / performing and was wondering if any one had any suggestions for Audience participation. I use fire staff (both double and single) Glow staff (both double and single) and just started using poi (fire and glow). Any tips or suggestions would be great. Thanks.


How do you change this thing???

Posted:Just some advice... Don't burn them... spray fuel on them... always wipe front to back... And don't forget to put a hat down, that's a mistake I'll never forget about...

Posted:I hesitate to suggest this, because I'm not sure how it would work in a busking situation, but in a more controlled environment, it can be fun to take wide-eyed civilians and reach around them doing a butterfly (with them facing forward, not facing you).
