1 poi each, 2 poiple playing

Synthesis: the combination of ideas into a complex whole. [from WordNet]

Imagine if you had so much skill, flow, practice and freedom of movement such that you were able to improvise sets of poi-play with another poi artist where you, without speaking, planning or doing anything other than flowing, were able to improvise 2 poi moves with each person playing on hand of the move. Weaves, reels, corkscrews, butterflies -- all of it. Ian and I have been playing with that on and off for 6 months now and having amazing progress through time. We enjoy it so much, we'll be offering a class.
