How to make and spin Poi balls


15 per visit

Poi is an ancient implement used in traditional New Zealand Polynesian dancing. The modern form is often done with lights, or with fire. There are many groups that practice on beaches, in parks, in deserts, and some at raves. I'm offering a workshop where you will make your own poi out of rope, paper towels, plastic bags, rubber bands, and fabric. Following that I will teach a few basic moves and concepts. Poi comes from a highly community based history but a lot of it you can teach yourself. This is an introduction course that supplies everything you need to establish a fun, challenging and often spiritual experience.

Training & Qualifications

I've been dancing with and without poi for about 10 years. I've performed at large gatherings and at small weddings and parties. The past year I've been focusing on poi exclusively and am training to begin spinning with fire.

Availability & Preferences

I'm flexible with my availability.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Breana Thomas

I have been described by the person who knows me best as a rainbow firework. I can do a million unique things adequately that by themselves go nowhere but when used together take me anywhere I want to... go. I have made it a point to master skills that can't be easily defined or explained because their worth comes from the experince of learning them. I live intensely through my senses, traversing the surreal and extraordinary while staying grounded in reality. I marvel in the absurd, the ridiculous, the silly. I'm working to become an Exotic (wild) Animal Trainer, and as practice I've taught my cat how to sit, fetch, and come. I'm willing to try anything twice (unless its irreversibly damaging or highly illegal). I believe in being genuine and sincere, especially when everything is forcing the opposite. I love animals and nature, literature and psychology, some pop culture, and running very fast. I live life at high velocity. I never stop learning and I never stop asking more
