Title: poi/circus skills
Post by: beanieferret on 15.04.2008, 20:37:34
as noted in the special interests section, I'm interested in running a poi/circus skills SIG over the course of the event.
I've already had a few people there who seemed interested, so thought I'd open it up a bit more.
I'll be teaching basic poi skills, although I only have a limited number of poi. If anyone else feels like teaching a few moves to people - be they poi, diablo, stick twirling, juggling, or whatever, feel free to join me. Its going to be a very freeform event, very much a 'find something interesting and give it a try' event. Only one thing - NO FIRE. I'm going to ask that no one bring any fire to the SIG at least. If you've got fire toys of your own, ask the resident security-wolf if you can bring them, and if you can play with them, but not at the SIG.

I'm not sure whether we can make a show (especially without first training together) but I'd surely be interested in talking to you and learning some stuff, especially fire related. Even if we would have to do it without the actual fire - this is something somewolf has to decide.

hmmm. Making a show is a bit beyond me - wont have much practice time. I'll be bringing my fire toys, and asking the staff if they mind me having a play with them by the bonfire, and would be glad to have some company, but will probably not do a full on show ;)
