Poi twirling, originally from the islands of New Zealand, is an ancient dance form that has transformed into a beautiful flow art seen all around the world. The movements were originally designed for warriors to remain strong and flexible, while at the same time balancing the body’s coordination. Traditionally a sphere on the end of a string, today’s flow arts take on many different shapes and forms.
