How long have you been hoop dancing, poi spinning, dancing with fire, etc?
Since 2006.

How did you learn?
Long hours of practice, attending workshops, books, and videos. Years and years of practice is what makes the most improvement.

Where can I learn to Hoop Dance?
I am currently offering online classes on hoop dancing, check them out www.hoopcity.ca

Where can I learn how to Spin Poi?
1. Check out www.homeofpoi.com for all kinds of information about poi spinning. They have a great online community and video gallery of tricks to get you started.

2. Also consider the Poi Spinning Book by Michal Kahn. I used this book when I first began poi spinning and it was incredibly helpful and easy to take to park for practices.

3. Lastly, check out the Instruments of the Now DVDs. These instructional DVDs are detailed and the moves are logically broken down. These DVDs have a LOT of tricks in them and will challenge you to do some pretty advanced moves.

Where do you get your hoops?
I make all my own equipment, from fire poi, staves, fire eating torches and all of my hoops.
