There’s a little Hawaiian in my Blood

Poi is a fire dance art originating from the New Zealand. Today it is used in many Pacific island shows, including Hawaiian. The Sandwich Islands (later Hawaii) became a US territory in 1898 but not a state until 1959! A piece of my family lived on those islands before they even became a territory! You would never know it by looking at me but I am in fact a little Hawaiian! OK, so that is true but I am only 128th Hawaiian. But on April 21st I had to summon all that 128th into a show!

Creekside Pines Senior Community was having a Hawaiian night for the residents. The weather was trying to put a damper on our parade but it held off  until right after the event! They had food, activities (including a pie toss- picture below), Hawaiian dancers and FIRE! They requested that I dress the part so. I took all that 128th and put into play and what a great show! The residents had their family and friends over and everyone enjoyed it.

Fire and Ice at Berry College

Posted in Chain Poi, Pictures, Shows with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 7, 2012 by jimmycush

A long time ago I attended college at Berry for 1 year, sense then I have been waiting on them to ask me back. On Feb. 17th they finally did… But they didn’t ask me to be a student but rather an entertainer! Berry College was having a Fire and Ice night and I was granted permission to heat things up a bit. The School grounds have changed greatly in the last 8 years but it still felt amazing going there to have some fun. They now have a water fall beside the Krannert center that acted as an amazing back drop for my show!

Here is look at the fun…
