Posted:Ok, so I would really like to do performances, whether free or paid doesnt matter too much(as long as its for a charity event or something if its free). But, is there a certain skill level i should reach before you perform in front of audiences?

to spin or not to spin, that is the question.

Posted:When you feel comfortable, really. Make sure you're not still hitting yourself constantly, you know more than a 3bt and windmill and can move around a bit. Mostly when you're confident and ready to have fun. Start small with friends who are also spinners, work your way up and never stop enjoying the ride.

Don't let your world end with you

p.s. No, just in case you're going to ask, I did not misspell Warrior, its supposed to be like that.

Posted:I think Noel Yee's advice from Encyclopoidia Vol. 2 was really some of the best. You don't need a lot of technique, you just need it to be solid and to be able to move around and do things with it. That and the classic "relax, smile, make eye contact" stuff. Not that I'm great at everything I've just said, but I've found that as I've got better with it my audience responds more.

Let me know what you find out about paid gigs, 'cause I could definitely go for a couple of those.
