Poi is a Maori word that means “ball on string”. It is a dance,
story-telling, and martial art device that creates strength even as it
creates grace. It’s how the Maori train their warriors. Here in the
states, people are most familiar with poi as a fire dance prop. This
class is an introduction to the basic skills of poi and will emphasize
integrating dance techniques. These skills can be used to build upon
later if you choose to learn fire dancing.
