Jacqui picked up her first set of poi around 10 years ago and persisted despite an embarrassing start. She loves performing with poi with lamé veils, which can give viewers an impression of elemental forces at work. Her graceful turns and the floating fabric create unique performances that often leave audiences amazed.

She also greatly enjoys teaching poi, either in workshops or as a traveling performer/teacher in fairy and arts festivals. Her next workshop will be on September 14, 2014, at Swing Time Ballroom in Fallston, MD. Jacqui also teaches at private events.

Jacqui also performs with poi with local dancers and bands for both shows and festivals.
