welcome to HoP weavesmiley



i used to live in holland but not any more unfortunately frown



there are quite a few dutch spinners on the board though. try here , these are all the dutch spinners i could find. they've all signed up in the 'meet others' section, so that means they're in the same boat as yourself - looking to meet others to spin with. so get in touch with some of them. you'll find that spinners (especially newbies) are generally delighted to meet anyone else who does poi, staff, or whatever. instant new friends hug



groetjes

Posted:right, sorry about that. that link doesn't appear to be working confused

go up to the menu bar and click on "Community", then "Meet Others>" then "Search".

this will bring you into a page where you're requested to enter a country, state, town or city. a search i did under "Netherlands" brought up about 10 results. not all have their email address listed, but you can send them a Private Message through this board.

happy hunting smile

Posted:Hey Stickman,

nog eentje uit Nederland :-), Wat studeer jij? Ikke ben delftenaar! I'm living in the Hague, actually quite near SeeSarahFly <<ook hier hoi!>>, so maybe we could have a slightly bigger meeting, with MOT (I've been wanting to see him since december, 7bt BTB, unbelievable...), Sarah, Me ubbangel and more...
I have a very small starting spinning group btw, one other poier, Foxylady, and a staff-girl [and maybe a diabolo/juggling dude]...

Hope to see you soon! wave

Posted:Hi Telpeva,

I saw another show on wich they spun to NIN, the song Starf**@#$ (can't really show the rest) So that's a great song, but there's also Herecy (i think you spell it that way), that's another great song, but if you want to spin to NIN you don't want to be fast offended by the strong languages....

I heard there was going to be some spinning at the beach this weekend (via Foxy Lady) but I don't have any time the next two weekends, but if someone has time during the week, let me know couse I have free travel during the week.

greenz,

Fuero

That's quite a ride from Groningen btw, cool that you will sacrifice so much time... ahh well, sacrifice, it's very very worth it, last two meetings were ubblove!!!
Do you have week or weekend OV btw?

Posted:Hi Telpeva,



Indeed it's Heresy, i checked it last nigt when I got home. NIN gives you a real rush and it sends a feeling of mysticism in the atmosphere. I also juggled to NIN last night, I was so intense (I need al my concentration just to do a cascade) that I got dizzy from staring at the balls. Oh, yeah, you asked about my style?

I don't reckon I've got really a style. Loads of butterfly thingy's and corkscrews, but I'm not that good.



But to get back on your question:

I study Graphic Design on the Graphic Lyceum here in Rotterdam.

What do you study?



Greetz,

Posted:well, that's the nice thing about style, you don't need a lot of moves for it... it is giving your own 'twist' to moves and the links between them, so with just a weave and butterfly as a base you can give poi a fluid/angel like quality, or maybe a fighting style, ballet like, etc...
So, you spin, you spin on music -> you have got a style :-)

but ehmz, I'm studying aerospace engineering in Delft...

weavesmileywave

Omnia, just the name... Is it a gaping omission in my musical knowledge?

Posted:yeh, they're very good. i love all their costumes & the whole neo-celt thing. it's a really good act.

no, i don't think i've met you at a gig. you were probably about 16 when i last saw them play wink

have you ever heard of an irish band called Kila? you might like them, check them out here

they don't really go in for the same type of stage show as omnia, but if you like that kind of music with plenty of good percussion then i think you'll like them.

Posted:it was at an outdoor festival in the grounds of some castle somewhere near utrecht. not sure of the name of the place any more, but i can picture it in my head. it was in about 1999 or so, shortly before i left holland.

i remember being quite shocked that they were dutch. it's not really your typical klompen muziek is it? wink
