The Joy of Poi
Poi spinning develops spatial awareness in a very visual way, a skill that is essential for all movement disciplines but sometimes hard for teachers to demonstrate. Once the basics of Poi spinning have been understood, there are hundreds of dance move combinations that can be arranged into routines, backed by music and then put into performances. As well as having enjoyed a unique and engaging experience, students who take part in a good workout are generally able to concentrate better in class.
