A lot of the Sydney olympic 2000 opening fire performers were on stilts doing fire (but not sure if they used fire poi)I know bill coleman also does poi on stilts.I have videos of both of these performances/performers in our video galleryHow long are the poi that you use?Happy swinging

Posted:i know of several people that do poi/staves on stilts. Some do it 'professionally', some do it for fun in the backyard. And I shall also grow several feet in height as soon as my uncle finishes my stilts
