Posted:First off, I don't mean this to be a popularity contest, more of an analysis of people others find inspiring, and what makes them stand out for you.
I blame Meg for giving me the idea for this thread, with her great post on the "what makes Poi beautiful" thread where she described Ronan, Jade and Thomas' styles in detail. It really helped me understand a few of the things that made me and lots of others like them.
I'll start with one of my many favourites, Thomas (Nevisoul). There's something about his style that shows you just how dedicated he is, every move he does seems under total control and he seems to be thinking 2 steps ahead of himself. You'll sometimes see him break into some difficult tech move and blend it with ease into his spinning. His body movement is the same as his spinning - very controlled and flowing. He's one of the people who've inspired me to improve my footwork.
I have some more in my head but I'll keep them for later.

Posted:More and more, G is becoming my primary inspiration. His control is spotless, and I love the way he travels through his planes. I watch his performances and feel like the fire is dancing with him, not like he's spinning things on chains.
Posted:A few additions to my last post. The Fakyrai group out of Lithuania is INSANE!!!! They are so inspiring, work VERY well together and are just so amazing. I get goose bumps every time I watch them. Here's a link to one of their videos. The fire breath off the buzzsaw is SIIICK!
Also my cousin is a HUGE inspiration to me. Mainly because she just got me started with all this plus she just kinda rocks!
