Introduction to Maori Poi Ball Basic Drills and Techniques - Class No. 3
The original Poi Ball is a tiny ball made out of flax attached to braided fibers. It is spun and hit to create sounds and patterns imitating the sounds of nature. The Poi Ball is used in the islands of New Zealand and is one of their Cultural Dances. Lately many people have used the Poi Ball in Polynesian Dance Shows as well as Fire Performers have adopted the Poi Balls and have used them in their fire performances (Fire Poi Ball Dance). This class will teach you the basics on how to twirl Poi Balls. This class goes over butterfly and thread the needle poi ball motions.
