Poi spread a new performance art to the world

'Poi' is the Maori word for 'ball' on a cord. Poi is a form of juggling where the balls are swung around the body.

From it's beginnings Poi had the purpose of enhancing dance and rhythm. It was soon realised that Poi swinging had several other benefits from wrist strength, flexability and improving co-ordination to name a few. Mastering simple Poi moves can quickly improve self-esteem and gain respect from others. Hence the reason it quickly becomes addictive. And like all performance arts you are only limited by your imagination. " by Home of Poi"
