Posted:I have exactly the same problem, although i will say i am concentrating. My friends say what i'm doing looks really good, but i need to loose the look of concentration and seriousness on my face; but i tell them to have a fucking go and try and grin at the same time, but they can't either. I say do some creative moves and wear some fucnky clothes and no one will be looking at your face any way.

Posted:Yup - same here. I do the same when I'm DJing too which is even more noticeable as I'm usually in full view of the crowd. I think the only way to change is to concentrate on making a more happy expression while doing all the easy moves - the ones you can do with your eyes closed - and then it should filter through to the rest of the performance.

Posted:I've been told that I'm either sticking out my tongue (full on concentration) or smiling. Haha I really need to get a video of it so I can have a gewd chuckle

But it doesn't really matter so much cause when I watch performances I'm normally looking at the fire and hand/body movements neways.

Djing on the other hand I do look at the faces...but no smiling is fine as long as you got some headbobbing to your music goin' on...cause if you ain't groovin' to your music nobody else is gonna either.

But if I'm having a play, I've either got the phatest smile, or a look of orgasmic pleasure on ma face. Can't help it, Poi'ing zones me out.. takes me to a happy place....

Uh tweet, I definitely don't know too many peeps here, but it's not hard to make friends at a groovy spot like HoP! you prove that point - you are making more mates by the day! I guess it sounds like we're ol' school chums or something here, but that's only because of the fact that I am frantically hiding that fact that am not even human.
I will reveal you you know, that I am indeed an artificial intelligence originally called 'Wintermute.' Ever seen a haunted mussel? I am indeed a Ghost in the Shell. Either that or i am an overbored office worker with an internet connection pray that i am not a vengeful starfish!

It's wacky how vengeful my face looks when i twirl, but then again I twirl like i'm intending to swat that mozzie that bit me. An idea for future COL videos is that silly face photos in the chapter indexes with a face for every performer on it, and an insultingly bad SD anime caricature of the faces of people who don't supply photos. Performance troupes can get their faces morphed into one seamless hideous conjoined deformity.
