I was wondering if there is a good way to write down choreography for a poi performance? I have trouble remembering such stuff in my head, so if i could write it down and look back to it for practice until i have it memorized that would be awsome.

any ideas?

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

If you need to write it down then you can either story-board it (like a cartoon strip) with notes underneath. Write it as a list broken down into sections.....


1st verse
- windmill x4
- wave arms x4
- jump on spot x3
- windmill x4

Chorus
- Matrix x2
- Halo x2
- Fishtails

2nd verse
- windmill x4
- wave arms x4
- jump on spot x3
- windmill x4

Chorus
- Matrix x2
- Halo x2
- Fishtails

Breakdown
- funky never seen before move of Doooooom
- apply plaster to ouchy
- fishtails

Chorus
- Matrix x2
- Halo x2
- Fishtails

Then you can concentrate on each section before sticking them together.

Hope that makes sense and is a little helpful!

Also just a couple of threads below this are the threads 'MCP's Academy of How to Make a Routine to Music Good and Do Other Things to Music Good Too" and "Choreography building fundamental techniques" that have some decent tips.
