Posted:performance experience,very high quality(manufacture)
props,fuel drop removals techniques,risk assesments,methods of not leaving thefloor
covered in fuel(a pieceof carpet,a mop when you have finisihed)a reasonable level of skill cos for deffinate there will be poi players in thecrowd,

on a more positve note,self belief,a dash of luck,the will to suceed, coupled with a love for what you do andan origional style will get you far
so will a good agent and a funky/sexy costume

Rave I only agreed because...well appart from making a little sense.. we can't brow-beat you all the time...well we CAN but it's fun to lift your hopes a little before we all start disagreeing again wink

Posted:Hello there Sue!

Welcome to HOP! hug



I have no idea about how to get gigs in ibiza, but I offer the following advice:



1) Stop the automatic music on your site. 9/10 visitors to your site will immediately be reaching for the volume control to turn it off. It also makes users wonder why their computer has suddenly started making noises.



2) Never, ever perform for free (unless it is for friends, family or charity) as clubs are well known for taking advantage of spinners, by getting them to perform for free/ alcohol, simply because we love spinning. By doing free work for entry or drinks, you are putting those people who make a living out of performing, out of business. You should be charging around 100 PER PERSON for about 20 mins work. Of course this depends on if the club wants you to use fire, how long they want the performance to be, how many performers they want etc.



3) Just a question about something I saw on your site: "Sue Parsons is a quailfied Poi instructor" - Umm.. qualified by whom? I'd love to be a qualified poi instructor too. smile
