Posted:And so, announcing the worst kept secret in history.

Uberpoi will almost certainly be held on the weekend of the 16th of July.

Teachers will be confirmed in the next few weeks. but don't you worry, they're going to be DAMN good.

price will be 45.
why the increase you ask?

because the uberstaff teachers were paid a very small amount, certainly not enough for the time they put in. and we would like to pay people a reasonable amount for their work. 45 is still very cheap when compared to most weekends of this type (approx 40 per day is the usual rate).

Accomodation will be fun to sort out, but i'm going to try to find a cheap location for all.

i am away in bristol for the next week, so will not keep you up to date until after i get back.

*invites excitement*

much love

Yeah newgabe, anytime after August 7th is considered ontime aparently but although it's due just after PLAY Fest.

George is quite comfy thanks, not doing too bad considering random women keep coming up and asking "how overdue" it is and patting it for her. That'd really bug me you know!

Drew, thank you so much for everything you did over the weekend.



You were an inspiration and I can't really express how grateful I am to you, Rob, Andy, Nick and all the other dancers I have met over the past week.



It feels amazing to finally have a direction, and to realise the work I need to do to get to where I want to be with this.



I was utterly fed-up with poi and struggling with this constant need to learn more moves... but this past week has changed all that.



So thank you to everyone.



I have fallen in love with those who danced.



"Why should not every Sufi

begin to dance atom-like

Around the Sun of duration

that saves from impermanence?

What graciousness and what beauty?

What life-bestowing! What grace!

If anyone does without that, woe-

what err, what suffering!"



(borrowed section from Rumi: Look! This is Love)



ubblove biggrin ubblove



(And much thanks to Andrea and Nik for introducing me to Rumi smile )
