tricks, such as insides, inversions, polyrhythms, and
hybrids. Plus, if there is interest, Chris can also
cover the basics of contact poi and other trick based
poi ,such as throws and wibbles. A full list of topics
will be posted as the workshop draws near.

About the Instructor
Chris Bailey (aka, Rovo) is a self-taught poi spinner
from upstate NY who began spinning poi in July of
2003. After spending over two years practicing alone,
Chris traveled to Toronto and Montreal to attend
workshops with Nick Woolsey in the fall of 2005.
Having met his greatest inspiration in the poi world,
Chris began traveling to meet other poi spinners all
over the Eastern U.S. Since then, Chris has taught
large workshops in Boston, Richmond and Atlanta, and
also has performed at various music festivals.

Over the past couple of years, Chris has gained a
level of notoriety in the online poi community for
videos he has posted on various forums. Here are some
links to a couple of those videos:

Posted:Mer's awesome, and she can def keep you in touch with whats going on spin jam wise down there. I haven't really had much contact with the DC and Baltimore Fire Communities but I have heard lots of wonderful things about them!
