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

ah twas a good day,those pentagrams and stars are mind boggling though Cameron.



Sounds interesting, care to explian????



sorry i dont think i cud,seein as i dont really understand them myself lol.

 Written by: imprettylikedrugs


Cathedrals have ferocious flames on em, and burn for decades, so their good in that regard, but only if you feel comfortable with that...LOL! SHades of Grey how are ye! Yeah those 5 pointed star things are odd, it forces the poi into anti spin, then into a stall and back to normal time...Ive been messing with those "one over the shoulder, one behind the back" stall things you were showing me...Theyre Purdy...Hows the over the head isolation coming ?



mmm i dont really understand the stars at all really hehe,ull have to show me again...oh and i was ready to show u how to make a monkey fist on tuesday...but u wernt there mad2 lol.
yeh u can get quite a few combos with them,they is fun!
em its not really coming at all,i just hit my shoulder blades or sumthing everytime....id say ive improved by about 4.012% tongue

to be honest though with the amount of things we showed each other ive pretty much forgotton them all haha

In case you missed it on the emeraldcircus mailing list (or on www.emeraldcircus.com)

Coming to a Naas near you:

The first Naas juggling convention in recorded history.
22 & 23rd September

Woohoo!

Fiona is organising.
Naas GAA hall is the venue.

I hear that Naas is very near Dublin, and very easy to get to from just
about anywhere in the country.

It is said that Naas is a satellite town, so the earths' gravity field
is obviously a bit weaker there, and nowhere in the world has 14 balls
been flashed more often than in Naas GAA hall...

Stay tuned to emeraldcircus (and www.emeraldcircus.com) for more
details.

PS
If you think you have to choose between this convention and the Clon
convention, the choice is easy: come to both.
If you're still not sure, I will be holding a two part workshop on how
to choose which juggling convention to go to. Part one will be given in
Naas, part two in Clon.

Now that you mention it I probably should get off my arse and tell ye all a bit about the Clonakilty juggling convention.



CLONAKILTY JUGGLING CONVENTION:



Thursday 27th - Sunday 30th September.

-24 hour hall

-food available on site (so you should be able to juggle/spin for a solid 72 hours before having to leave wink)

-Darragh's supposed to be organising fancy German jugglers to come over - I've heard rumours of Marco Paoletti and Stephan Sing being interested, as well as super contact staffers Josh and Valerie...we'll have to see.

-fire show

-workshops (I already have stretching circles, hybrids, throws, flowers workshops prepared - anyone have any special requests for other poi workshops? Who else is gonna teach some workshops? Rob? Eimhin? Aidan, Amelie?) Alexander technique, sushi and other workshops of randomness

-sunday games

-Boggle juggling shop

-Camping (Desert House Camping) is available 5 mins walk away and in the past groups of jugglers have rented apartments between large groups of them to keep costs down - search google



So everyone start preparing your workshops ye want to give, and leave requests for workshops here or at https://www.emeraldcircus.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=175]emerald circus

So who's teaching some workshops?
Any requests for workshops? What do people want to learn?

I like learning

I want to learn how to stop gravity, and Ghandi to teach it to me.

On a more realistic note, a sushi making workshop by anyone would be pretty amazing,
Or a "The state of your head, let me help you with your dreads...You poor poor hippy" Workshop. poss by Sue ?

or a Workshop on eating with your eyes closed/In the dark/Confined spaces like Gollum, could be fun.

A multitasking workshop, how to rub your stomach and pat your head.

Magic workshop?

I could go on all day, the only problem is finding people to do the workshops.
