    Props to all ya'll circus freaks like me out there. I spin fire...poi and staff. I love doin this sexy ass belly dancing thing with the poi. This summer me two other fire twirlers and a gymnast, we're gonna attach fire prongs to her toes while she flips around like a monkey, an sum drummers are hoppin in a van and circusing across the country(Canada). Hope you see us we'll be pretty hard to miss. Who else likes to play with the fire?

    Nice. I have performed with fire breathers before, I used to to this thing with this guy for a finale where I would get up on his shoulders and spin while he blew a huge fire ball. Be careful tho, I know you prolly know, but I've seen a few ppl light their faces on fire and thats never fun. Dude freak show stuff is totally circus. Oooh you should try throwing coffeemate into the air and lighting it up. *pyro*funs fun. I like fun.

    I have to ask. How does one safely handle fire with long hair?

    I'd love to firehoop but my hair gets wrapped around a regular hoop.

    tie it up int oa bun or wear a hat thats all i can sujjest, i used to have massive wool dread extensions which prevented me doing fire poi. no i have small real dreads, much better.

    If u have that much hair and are struggling to find a hat, get a tam, they are designed for dreads and there for designed for a lot of hair

    wet it it cover it up with a toque that won't melt. A toque is a winter hat. or any other kind of hat.

    I was at the Vancouver Tattoo Festival a little while ago and we saw this guy Rob Hill and he did all kinds of crazy stuff. Poked needles through his face and his arms, spat fire, eek! :) I wonder what inspires someone to actually pursue a career as a professional freak? Next time I see him I'll have to haul him aside and ask him how he knew. :D

    Get Fire Poi at Luxotica!

    I was all revved up to make a post about poi. I lOVE it...although i'ts been really hard to find poi anywhere (here in Vancouver) that sells the starter kits and whatnot.Im not good or anything, but i went to the lantern festival in Newton last summer and i fell in love and then had the oppertunity to try it.
    If you have any info on getting started...or anyone you know that teaches in Canada, please let me know..

    its absolutley insane.
