Thank you! I trained in ballet when I was young for seven years — that’s probably what you’re seeing. :)

palidances says:

Consider how you define dancing. I think of it as becoming a conduit for the music — allowing its melodies and rhythms, its rises and falls, to dictate my motions.

When dancing with a tool such as poi, one must develop full range of motion within each movement type. This facilitates the ability to transition and move freely with the music, and thus creates the freedom to dance.

Beautiful dance, I Love the way you move with the flames. I feel a person graduates from ‘fire spinner’ to ‘fire dancer’ when they allow themselves to be moved by the flames, rather than trying to manipulate the fire with their body, and you definitely move like a dancer 🙂

i loved your interpretation of the song – so ethereal and graceful. there’s a reason it’s called fire-DANCING – just not everyone gets it. thank you!

Lamb – Gabriel

BackboneFirePoi says:

come back to salt lake, your light and heart warms the most frozen heart. Your soul sings to the highest self. How can we measure gabriels’s love; to know what is to come, but to perform what must be. Even if we know our destiny. Thank you. It’s in the knowing and doing, that we find our humanity.

Someone may have answered this already, but, does anyone know the song title and artist? Great performance. I poi but have a much more masculine style and I love to watch people actually dance with poi. Well done!
