Sydney first learned to spin poi in 2013 during her semester abroad in New Zealand. She had never really found a form of dance that she connected with until she began to spin. Now she knows there is no other that will make her feel quite the way poi does. Sydney has since graduated from the University of Idaho and taught poi classes in Moscow. She recently returned from 7 months in China teaching English and is so happy to be living in Boise! Sydney feels like poi is an amazing way to connect with your own body and those around you. She is so excited to share everything she’s learned.
