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.

HE IS BACK!! Starting as a fire performer, Chris Carlos’ obsession quickly transformed him into an internationally acclaimed performer and teacher. After many years of performing, his desire to try everything and be the best at it took over and he branched out into other circus disciplines. The creative and highly skilled firespinning acts he devised granted him an acceptance into the National Institute of Circus Arts (NICA). Chris went on to create, devise, refine and perform spectacular hits that toured internationally.

In 2013, Chris turned aspirations into reality and started ‘Spin Circus Academy’, a training school for aspiring adult circus performers which specialised in Acrobatics, Adagio, Handstands, Aerials, FlyingTrapeze, Contortion, Act Creation and more.

If you have missed his workshops this Bornfire Festival, don’t miss this opportunity to train with him this September!
