About my performance

【Introduction】
I perform with jump rope and poi. My performance is for all ages and handling familiar and simple tools by imagination, creativity and fun and unique way. Not only with high level tricks, but also rope manipulations, well-choreographed routine harmonized with the music, floor acrobats gotten the ideas from contemporary dance and capoeira. I merged all of these elements and created my original style. LED show and fire show are capable.
