Posted:Hi
Name is Michael- I got in to poi about 3 years ago from a friend. I love it - i do my best to learn what i can - Poi, Staff- Juggling and more. About 2 years ago we started a local Group called Lux Orbis we spin together on occasion. What i am trying to do is locate more people in central Il ( Peoria , Pekin, Canton, Morton, Bloomington, Metamora and so on) That want to get together and spin or vice versa teach each other more and new ideas. There is close to 20+ total between the groups locally and i would like to try and expand that more and create more of an environment for local people to spin and meet others.

So just as a additional heads up here is about some of the people in or group. Several of us are Reiki practitioners, into \ teach yoga, massage therapist, Computer guru's, animal lovers and breeder's, nature walkers, Djembe and hand drum playing, raw and vegan food eating, arts and craft making, martial arts and mineral and gemstone fans, Bike riders, Land healing , beer loving normal people that like to have a bit of fun on the side.
If you are interested get in touch.
Thanks
Mike

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

Posted:well i tell you what Jeggienbudd, ever feel like coming to Peoria, we will set something up and spin and hang out. Actually its last minute notice but....a few of us spin every Friday at a local art and craft market called the Fiesta Market downtown Peoria, which is this Friday. But in a general sense we get together off and on to spin together for fun, we have a group from Bloomington Il that joins us and a few people from around the area as well.
food for thought

Posted:Poi classes with Justin Benson in Peoria IL !!!

Jb will be making a route to Chicago during September on his way back home to Kansas he will be stopping by Peoria to offer some workshops .


Justin Benson, also known as JB, is a poi spinner from Springfield, MO. Passion has led him to become dedicated to the progression of the art form that he has fell in love with throughout the years. JB has focused heavily on the manipulation of poi, influenced by juggling as well as contact juggling. JB has earned a reputation throughout the US for his creativity and innovation that he has contributed to the poi community. JB has traveled to teach workshops at festivals such as Kinetic Fire and now he's heading your way to share his knowledge with you and your community!

Here is Jb's youtube channel and some quick looks at his wide breadth of knowledge in object manipulation.





Come join us for this delightful afternoon with JB and scale you ninja skills up a few levels !

JB will be teaching 3 classes - Poi tosses, Intro to Negative Space,Intro to contact Poi.

Classes are $10 each or $25 for all 3 classes - cash only due date of class .

Location for workshops

Poi Tossing!
JB loves to toss his poi! He loves it so much he feels the need to share his Tossing Arsenal with YOU! Join this class as he walks through the beginning stages of poi tossing and subtly progresses the class into some intermediate concepts that will get the gears in your head turning. This workshop will lead you to become comfortable with tosses and allow you to open up a new realm in your poi flow!

Intro to negative space
The enclosed area given between the body and your prop is considered to be negative space. In this workshop, JB will teach the class how to make the negative space using different parts of your body as well as how to move your poi through the space that is given fluently. This class is perfect for newcomers to negative space as well as those who have a grasp but need to be introduced to new things to try. Come join us to step up your poi game and take it to the next level!

Intro to contact poi
Join JB as he introduces how to use the body to manipulate the way your poi travels. JB will be covering manipulations with the stage ball, handle, and rope to give you a solid foundation in order to spark your interest in exploring the infinite possibilities that you are given. Learn to look at your poi from a different perspective and open up all of that creativity thats begging to be unleashed. From contact rolls to body wraps, we're going to let our bodies become one with the poi.
