A regular favourite of fire twirlers. Poi is a Maori word and the art of spinning poi originally comes from New Zealand, though can be found throughout the world today. Fire Poi are made of a ball of kevlar wick on the end of a chain that is swung around the body. Usually twirled in pairs, they create a beautiful circular fire trail about the fire dancer.
Watch Ms Jeaniza Tagaoc, a second year student nurse and CESDEV volunteer aspirant, perform a routine of spining poi in the video above.
