Posted:PLEASE NOTE: Anyone who posts the Dictionary definition of the word Technical in this thread is a very annoying person tongue wink



People talk about 'Technical' poi quite a lot. Sometimes in a positive way, but often in a way that's almost derogatory.



What does it mean to you? What do you think it means to others?



Moves that are difficult?

Ugly moves?

Moves where your feet are stationary?

Moves that concentrate on details rather than the whole?

confused2



if you dance, can your poi be technical?



can technical poi 'flow', or is flow the opposite of tech?



a genuinely rather confused monkey confused

well, now that the original poster has gotten the answer he was looking for, there is no longer any use for this thread...

using that logic, all intro threads should really be closed after the first post...
