Artist Profile: Shelly Ross

As we continue with our artist profiles for the Temple of Poi 2009 Fire Dancing Expo & 7 Year Anniversary, we spotlight student performer Shelly Ross, student artist performing in Temple of Poi Fire Dancing ExpoShelly Ross, who will be performing with her group, Dark Side of the Rainbow.

Shelly took up poi in July of 2008 as a way of doing something completely different from her “regular” life.  She never had any intention of playing with fire but you know how intentions go.  She loves the sound of spinning fire but has yet to shake the fear of her hair going up in flames.
