These queens of tech poi.. This is a half hour long, but they are doing some great stuff.
Poi originated with the Mauri culture, in New Zealand. They used it for story telling, keep fit, and improve the mind. This large performance seems fun and is entertaining to watch. It’s good to see the traditions sticking around.

This is a very well edited video about Fire Life Fest. There’s a lot of unique props in this vid and it’s worth a watch if you’re at all interested in fire performance.
Ryan Dover kills it glowsticking. Glowsticking/ glowstringing was the precursor to international poi. Before LEDs, these were the best way to spin poi, inside. It’s crazy easy to tie shoestrings to two dollar-glowsticks. Spinning the glowsticks gracefully is much more difficult. The weight of the glowsticks isn’t very much and makes everything harder. Practicing a lot, for 5 years will get you about this far in skill.
Alexander Nagachevskiy, from Russia, has been killing the 4-poi/ double meteor game for a while. This is a compilation of some of his Instagram videos from 2016.

There isn’t very advanced poi spinning in this video, but the choreography with Pixel Poi is amazing.

Playing with fire might seem dangerous, if you’re afraid of fire.. These guys are definitely not afraid of fire. Instead, they take great pleasure in controlling it.

Caution: This is so inspirational that you might get the feels.
Cyrille Humen took poi to a whole new level, when he released this video, in 2011. You will see many of his tricks being used by poi spinners that came after this. His experimenting has been very influential to poi spinning, all over the world.. He’s like the Rodney Mullen of Poi, in my opinion. Correct me if I’m wrong.
