Join Summer for a lesson in beginner POI spinning. Students will be provided with soft practice non flammable POI for class in a fun environment full of laughter.

"POI" is the Maori word for "ball" on a cord See above an example of short and long Poi used in dance - Maori Kapahaka The POI was used, many years ago, by the indigenous Maori people of New Zealand to increase their flexibility and strength in their hands and arms as well as improving coordination. Wahine (female) dancers perform the Maori POI, a dance performed with balls attached to flax strings, swung rhythmically. Those pictured to the right are using short POI. The POI dance was originally used by the Maori women for keeping their hands flexible for weaving and by the men for strength and coordination required during battle. POI are also used as a training aid for other ancient weapons like the Mere or Patu (Short club)
