Posted:Hello, hello and welcome to the all-new, shiny thread for fire dancers, spinners, object manipulators, drummers, musicians and anyone else interested in these arts anywhere in Ireland.



Our community started coming together a few years ago, and it's grown to include people from all over the country...



If you are new to poi or staff or spinning stuff and want to meet up with any of the Irish spinners, please post in this thread, introduce yourself and feel free to come along to the workshops, gatherings or events that get talked about.



Also, if you'd like to be on my mailing list for fire gatherings and other juggling events, please PM me your email address and I'll add it. The fire gathering takes place fortnightly in Belfast, but it's one way to keep in touch with everyone.



So welcome, and hope to see you soon wave

Posted:Nice one Ronan hug2

Hope it continues going well...

I'm just back from a hen weekend with my school friends in Newcastle, ai.

Learned to pole dance like a good'un, like (might be able to steal one move... without looking like a prostitute... maybe).

But I mainly spent my night laughing at the horror of stag/hen nightclubs...

The DJ played:
Country Road
Time Warp
YMCA
Dancin on the Ceiling
9-5

blah blah, etc etc.

Each song was accompanied by shrieks from my friends of 'this is my favourite song, ever!!'

Argh.

The air was thick with cheap perfume and aftershave; stale, spilt beer and testosterone.

Coupled with the fact that the group of girls I was with were all pretty (at least, when compared to other.... patrons... of this nightclub)... so our circle was surrounded all night by rather ugly, rather sleazy, hormone-driven men. You could almost slip in the drool.

Yeush.

So I left early biggrin

I was never into nightclubs... but it surprised me to realise how far I've removed myself from that scene.

shrug

Anyways... hope y'all had a good weekend.

And see you the first weekend in June smile

xx

PS: Eimhin... just saw my emails, been away all weekend...

Posted:A quick note to let people know that pre-registration has opened for the EJC in Greece - I managed to be the very first person to register online this year (which beats my previous record of being 5th in 2005 biggrin and equals my "1st to register" from last year!)
Online Pre-registration Here

Remember, if you are planning to go to Athens for the EJC that pre-registering makes life much easier for the organisers.
