Poi in the Park

By johnboy 5 May 2010 23

Fire twirling

A lot of Canberra’s more interesting young women are getting into fire twirling right now (possibly the ones who can’t rollerskate).

Glebe Park in turn is fast becoming the mecca for fringe sports to meet and train (more on some of the others another day).

So it should come as little surprise that if you want to get into fire twirling Glebe Park is the place to go.

Facebook alerts us to an opportunity tomorrow night:

Poi in the park is a friendly group of fire twirling enthusiasts getting together and having a great night, sharing skills and ideas, meeting new people and having a fantastic time!!

Bring your friends along and learn something new: twirling, poi, staff, juggling, hula hooping, learn to construct your own unique toy or just come watch the show and have fun… everyone is welcome!! =)

If you have an ipod we have speakers so feel free to bring whatever music you like =D

***With increasing numbers every week we urge that if you wish to play with fire to either chip in or bring some kero with you, running out isnt fun!***

Alcohol: It is legal to drink alcohol in Glebe Park (if you’re over 18). Having said that, Poi in the Park is NOT a party, it is an event for everyone to learn and share their talents. Please do not attend or invite people to this event if you plan to get drunk and disorderly. It is not about that and we find it very disrespectful.

Any further information or enquiries feel free to contact the Canberra Fire Twirlers http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=165535498376&ref=ts

Plenty of links, videos and photos on that page also.

What’s Your opinion?

Hey Kuku,

I think it would be a great opportunity to do a bit of a session with everyone, teaching about traditional polynesian poi. It could be on any day if you wanted to keep it focussed. I am pretty sure a few people would be interested. I’d be happy to help out if you would like to share some of your culture. That would be awesome! If you are keen, let me know when 🙂

I’d love to. Do you have an email or phone number?
I’m pretty busy until mid-June (I’ll be in NZ 😉
