Noel has been spinning and manipulating props since triquetras were first chiseled into stone. He is a veteran, a skilled technician, and a top-level teacher. He has inspired in many the practice of cross-training, developing skills with multiple props so that the ideas can cross-pollinate. Several of the double-staff techniques in this video were first developed with poi, for example.
The Flow Arts Institute is creating a compendium of online video training for spinners and jugglers. We aim to provide top-quality video lessons from renown teachers that cover the widest variety of prop skills. This website will have many more inspirational and instructional videos very soon. Stay tuned for an announcement of their launch.
