Anderson , Executive Assistant to the Founder
stay at home farm mom with no formal dance training of any kind,
Lacy found firedancing by accident. She really didn't need or
want another hobby in her life - so she wasn't really terribly
interested when her sister presented her with a set of poi. She
tried to spin a few circles, and unable to get her planes straight,
put them down in frustration.
The next week Lacy tried the poi again and found them a little
easier to use. After seeing the three-beat overhand weave, her
interest was piqued and she was determined to master this new
hobby. Lacy picked up on new moves and found she was getting them
quickly and keeping up with her sister who was taking lessons
and teaching her what she learned in class. As her skill level
grew, her interest in the art also continued to grow.
A few months later Lacy's sister emailed her a few videos of
Isa spinning poi, and that cemented her determination to honing
this newfound talent. She wanted to be that good! The two of them
have been taking classes together at the Temple of Poi ever since.
Lacy has drawn on her years as an exotic dancer to work with
her body and fire tools to bring about a spectacular show. Recently
discovering fire fingers, she is taking her skills to a new level.
Only seven months into her poi training, she is already working
on her first choreography piece. She finds herself drawn to the
Temple of Poi community for the positive environment that is provided
to everyone and anyone no matter your skill level or who you are.
Her desire to get involved has resulted in her taking on the role
of Executive Assistnt to the Founder.
