Poi & Ribbons

The art of Poi involves swinging two weights on cords through the air in various geometrical shapes. Poi , meaning ‘ball on a cord’, have been used for over a thousand years by indigenous Maori people of New Zealand during their traditional dances and songs to increase flexibility, strength and co-ordination. Traditionally made from woven leaves and plant husks, these ancient forms of poi have now evolved to include fire poi, tail poi and LED poi.


The tradition of Poi spinning is still taught in Primary Schools in New Zealand and is believed to be a great stimulant for concentration and to assist with learning difficulties.
