Poi is a form of dance where balls on the ends of ropes are swung through rhythmical patterns. It originates with the Maori people of New Zealand, who originally used poi to develop grace, flexibility, and combat skills. Poi eventually developed into a traditional ritual entwined with song, symbolic gesture, and storytelling.

Poi was popularized throughout the world initially by fire-spinning, a recent and non-Maori take on the ancient art. As poi spread, enthusiasts borrowed from other disciplines such as martial-arts, tai-chi, dance, Indian club swinging, and rhythmic gymnastics to develop a dynamic movement modality.
