What is Poi
‘Poi’ is the Maori word for ‘ball’ on a cord.
The Poi was used many years ago by the indigenous Maori people of New Zealand to increase their flexibility and strength in their hands and arms and improve coordination. Wahine (female) dancers perform the Maori Poi, a dance performed with balls attached to flax strings, swinging rhythmically. Those pictured to the right are using short Poi.
