Manipulation: Poi Spinning

Difficulty: Medium

Safety warning: Make sure you have enough space! When you practice lots, you’ll be able to control your poi and practice in a small space. But until then, avoid catching siblings, pets, parents and breakable objects with your poi!

Elly shows you some poi spinning moves that are perfect for learning and practicing at home. If you haven’t got your own poi, watch Elly’s How To Make Sock Poi video first!

In this video you’ll learn a three-beat weave. Starting with a two-beat weave, which forms the basis for lots of poi spinning, you’ll work towards three beats with Elly’s guidance. She also shows you how to make your weave look really good by polishing your technique!
