3 words: get a life! Even when they were popular, it was more of a spontaneous thing, not something you waste time on practicing. Seek help, glowsticks can be fun at parties, but once they start taking over your life (ie causing you to post messages on bulletin boards in hopes of finding videos you can spin your money on and waste more time with) you have to realize that you have a problem. Start weening yourself off of them. Say "Ok tonight I'm going to go to a party and I won't break out the glow sticks for at least two hours" or start out with "Tonight I will just hold the glow sticks in my hands instead of tying them to long ass strings" Or better yet, when the music starts to grab you, forget about the glow sticks, just close your eyes and catch a groove. DON'T LET GLOWSTICKS RUN YOUR LIFE! Start letting go now before it is too late! Believe me, you take glowsticks more seriously than anyone on this god's great earth, you know they started out ads just a fun little trip/throwback to youth toy, don't make more out of them than what they are. peace, a concerned fellow partier

whats up kidd, the way i see it, feeling the music is more important than the actual "glowstick ritual" if youve got the music in your head, and youre able to feel it on the INSIDE, then all you gotta do is "play". thats a term we use for all our trix and stuff, glowsticks, liquid, ect.... do what you feel, and hell you might even come up with your own little thing, that everyone likes, and there you go, youve started something new. its all about what YOU wanna do, not what youve seen other people do, much l-o-v-e NEETER

Listen kid, i first started ravin when this cat i work with showed me how to spin the glow sticks. It is very hard to show someone but even harder to explain, but it is imperitive to know. First, hold each stick in your hands pinching them between your pointer finger and your pointer finger and your thumb. Then point them directly in front of you. Now keeping both sticks toutching, draw a figure 8 shape in the air.

Now keeping both sticks toutching, draw a figure 8 shape in the air. Once you have a good flow going, slowly separate them, trailing one behind the other. If you can actually firure it out from this babble, the try to keep your wrists toutching as muck as possible and if you can do that, you can now begin to spin. This is the basic hand motion for MANY golowtick moves includind most glow/string techniques (which are my preferance). Like all ravers will say, if you want to learn, go to a rave, however, only roll if you have serious ihibitions, otherwise you should be able to manage straight. No i would love to teach all you fellas how to mad tear it up with the rope style, but thats freekin impossible to do without showing you physically, sorry. PLUR, And be kind to those who accidentally hit you with glow sticks on strings, ITS AN ACCIDENT, IM SORRY,

Yeah start out with a figure eight, then try doing a backwards roll like a ball then let the musix and the take over and then after a few rolls and parties you will start to have flow, thats how i learned, oh yeah do it in front of a mirror thats how i learned, oh yeah use blue ones, it looks the good

I've done several shows, big and small... and no matter how much your practice and pre-plan moves... YOU CANT do it... you gotta FEEL the music and flow with it... as for getting better... what I do is play my rave mp3 collection of music and I just close my eyes and slowing start raving to the music and just let it flow... I've come up with tons of sweet moves by closing my eys and just going with the music.

When I first started partying I had the same questions. I wanted to learn how to spin glo sticks. I looked around on the net a little but couldn't find anything at all on glo stick spinning (at the time) so basically I just had to learn for myself. I watched what others did, and took mental notes. I asked ppl for advice and got some really good pointers. I first learned on small strings, (maybe 1, to 2 feet long) and played around with them for a long time. I can now tear it up pretty damn good (or so I've been told) with long strings (3 feet or longer). I see alot of newbies who want to spin the long strings right off the start but the way I see it learn how to spin them small first. The problem I see alot is that ppl use their arms instead of their wrists. It's really not hard to do once you get the idea. Let the glo sticks do the work, and slight varations of your wrists and hands will make different visual effects. Basically what it really takes is patience, and practice. If you really want to learn to spin, you'll learn. Just don't give up. And for all you ppl out there who dispise glosticks. Sheesh give us a break. Were just having fun!!!

hey i gotto move for all yall beginners out there,this is hard to teach by words but i'll try my best. ok to form a figure 8, with your right arm draw an 8 and keep on doing that till u get it. on your left arm just move it up and down.while doing the figure 8. keep doing it over and over till go get really good. then u do a spit fire. when u do the figure 8 then cross your arms like an x then run it down to your body and revirse it then hold one glow stick by your mouth adn the other one flying out of your mouth like you are spiting fire.

The best technique for glowsticks is to use the same moves for fire spinning. I had a friend teach me how to spin fire, so the move to glowsticks was very easy.

Ok, for one don't listen to the guy that posted that first ad about how you need to get a life! What a jerk! Talk about needing to get a life, he needs to find one and stop going on the internet and posting responses that make people feel bad just so he can feel good and feel like he has a life. But anyways. I've been raving for a while and love my glow sticks to death! I remember my very first rave I had my first ever set of sticks and fell in love to the point that they went everywhere I went and even slept with me to give me good rave dreams! Funny huh? Well I can give you a site that got me where I am today trick wise. I just wish I had found it sooner before I got all the scrapes,bruises, and welts. All I ask is that you let me know if it helps you! REMEMBER: It's not stupid, it too is a form of art that takes LOTS of practice! PLUR!! (P)eace (L)ove (U)nity and (R)espect! www.homeofpoi.com

Well Im another person that wants to get into the rave scene.I bought a pair of glowsticks in some store,and a coincidence is that they were playing some rave music.I opened them and just went crazy,spinning them,not even thinking much about the beat.It was the 1st time Ive ever held glowsticks and I had like 10 people watching me.When the song was over,everyone was clapping and complimenting me.That was real awesome.I just wanna move one step higher.I wanna learn some techniques that can help me with doing liquid.Things like little exercises that I can do and things like that.If you have any kind of info like this please email me,as I'll probably be back on this messageboard.

Thanks alot!!

wurd up fellow ravers when i first started ravin i just used my hands without the glowstix or anything. while i wuz in school when i felt like ravin i just did it i didnt care what people thought but what sucked is i only knew how to do the figure 8 its really easy to do but i tried this move and everyone said it looked trippy so i thought i'd tell you other ravers how 2 do it first get into the figure 8 and keep doing it then when you feel it, start doing a huge figure 8 with your hands and arms while your wrists are already doing the figure 8.

-- Anonymous, April 03, 2002

Well I skipped the Figure 8 thing.I just started one day spinning my hands in circles.Now what I do to practice is fairly simple,and kinda funny.My friend has a blacklight.He turns off all the lights in his room,and turns it on.Then we put on some rave music,and some socks on our hands.Then we start spinning them and There We Go,Were Ravin'.

What I meant to say in the post before this one,is that I probably WONT be on the message board again.I found it again this time by coincidence.So if you exercises to get to do liquid very good,please email me!!!

Aight so yeah like basicly what everyone else has said on here i've been going to raves for about 2 or more years and there a hell of a lot of fun. Now what i hate about what ppl are saying to just go to raves and find out with yourself i have 1 comment to you ppl SHE or He DOESNT NEED TO GO TO A RAVE AND LOOK LIKE A COMPLETE IDIOT!SHE ALSO ASKED THE QUESTION ON STUFF FOR HER TO DO..HELP ON IT AND WHAT YOU SAYIN ISNT HELPING! Like some of you might have done! But yeah once you got a couple good moves down on your own then u should go! What i did when i first started is got a couple pieces of string and tied my to middle fingers to each end and then just practised making cool movements with it..that also helps you learn to liquid a lot easier. after your good enough take off the string and replace it with cool glow sticks in your hands or white gloves on your hands or somethin. Whatever you want! As for as what to do with your glow sticks what i first learned was where you put your two wrists together the bottoms of your wrist and spin you hands around each other always makin sure your wrists are touching..add some glow lights and this looks cool when you use different hights with your arms..just make sure not to use your arms alot! Also look on the internet for more moves. Well hope this helps a bit! Rave on! ~Shady

Glow sticks are the most ridiculous form of dancing, all of you stick twirlers look like fools. Why don't you learn to actually dance, and not rely on light up instruments to make you look good. I give props to the fire twirlers, but that's about it, and only due to the dangers involved. What can glowsticks do? Oh, wait, when you're all slobbering idiots all rolled out, you could chew on one and ingest some of that non-toxic glowing substance. Do me a favor, and learn to be true to the scene, stay sober, dance to my beat, and learn to decipher what a trainwreck is...

Half of u ppl that posted here for this guy DISGUST ME! I dont believe half of ur asses have even stepped foot into a rave before because u sure dont act like it! So just shut ur god damn traps! I mean first off the kid asked for some help on how to practise and tips and all u ppl can do is tell him that glowsticks are shit.. did he ask for ur god damn oppinun on whether u like to rave with glowsticks or not.. no! And also for a matter of fact u can become a good raver by PRACTISING! and u need to know the rite tecnique to practise! How many times have u gone to a rave or party and seen that "odd person" standing out who obviously doesnt know how to rave... its embaressin ya know so all the ppl that told this kid to just go out and expierence it.. shut the fuck up! Now glowsticks are awsume.. im gunna be the odd person out here and tell u that with glowsticks u can do some pretty kewl shit! Try maybe wearin a pair of white gloves underneath a strob and black light! Good effects! This http://www.houseofrave.com that one of the ppl posted here is a good site for liquidin and other shit! When ur first startin off to liquid my first piece of advice is try not to get ur arms involved 2 much.. let ur wrists take control. Also listen closly to the beat of the music! The beat is very important! Most important part to ravin comes from the music and the beat! U just cant rave properly without one! Download some trance and techno and some rave shit on ur comp and just sit in ur chair move ur hands to the beat or use a mirror! Thats also good way to practise. When ur at school and hella bored practise.. just move ur hands follow ur fingertips together. Pretend theres a piece of string attaching ur middle fingers together.. (or actually try tying a piece to both ur middle fingers) and move ur hands in different ways.. movements. Keep control of ur movements! Dont go to fast dont rush anything and be repetitive. Hope that helps yo DjLazyLaz

yo i cant stand all you hatas out there. all the peeps on this message board are all interested in havin a good time and all you fucks who write shit bout them are jus lookin to get ur asses kicked. i've only been ravin for like 2 yrs but have only just begun to use the glow sticks and i believe that glow sticks are an art in themselves. the people who say practice makes perfect know what they sayin cause it does. id say ive only used the glowsticks like 6 times and ive picked up the figure 8 shits and the fire spitting but the one that gets the most responses would have to be my own creation. for the peeps lookin for a quick lesson listen up. keep ur hands going in a spherical motion (like revolving around each other about as fast as you can) and every now and then let one of ur hands fly out or the motion and directly at the closest persons face ( try this to a person in general ) and to the sides of their face. and for all the controversy over how to hold the glowsticks, jus do you. i prefer to hold my middle finger over top of the glowstick and my index and ring fingers below. well id appreciate it if some of you would let me know if any of my tips have helpe at all peace - Baker

U looking how to rave better? Well, first it depends on where you live. But other than that, wave your hands around for 3 years nonn stop every day like i did, and youll get the hang of it. The more you want to look like a crazy raver at a party, the more you'll wave your hands around, the cooler you'll look to yourself and the higher on drugs you'll look to the rest of fucked up society. Oh yea, i god really good at dancing by taking lots of drugs. Dont do drugs though :)

ight, one of thoese guys gave you a link, after basic raven wit your hands, learn poi (glowsticks, led's, fire on strings or chains). www.homeofpoi.com they will set you up wit everythin you need to know: tricks, proper equipment, tips, the works. And for basic rave, its mostly practice, and just whatever your hands go, while your raving try new stuff see what works. Same thing with poi, i can do a lot but still you can mix it up and do whatever you want, i've been tryin to toss it up and catch it and keep goin. At this kind of stuff you can never be the best so don't expect to be but enjoy it, its sometin to do, like a hobby. Never doubt the imposible, and live in a blur, -peace- -love- -unity- -respect-

Hey peeps, I don't know if this will help all of you or some of you, but i know it's helped alot of people. bouncybop.com has this video from the liquid pop collective about an hour long and shows how to liquid pop and do digits, they have a movie trailer on the website. Its sick to watch these guys at a rave or a party liquid popping, liquid pop eric is also in it who's video clips have been circulating all over kazaa.

I dont thin the first two responces were all that cool. Maybe the guy just wants to learn because he likes it or maybe, just like me, I like doing it for other people, to give them enjoyment. Anyways, best way to learn is from someone who already knows how. Nothing like having a critic there to tell you what you are doing wrong and how to fix it.

Hmm well every one has their own style that is true. The best thing to do is just listen to the music and let it take you where it goes. You have to feel the music inside your body. You can practice when ever you have free time. No one is born with th ability to rave but you can always learn from looking at other ravers and cacthing some of their moves. In my opinion the most awsome thing about raving is that you can built your own style and it does'nt matter how weird it looks. The glowsticking takes some time to learn ive tryed to look for some sites. Try and look in the internet.

just grooove to the music! crack open some sticks and start flinging you arms around, just be happy, no one cares how it looks, just flow with the music, or find the beat to the song (the duff duff duff duff) and start flinging one arm for the one duff then another arm for the other duff and then bring back another hand for another duff and then another hand for that other duff and start moving your feet along with the beat...like you are marching in one place, or tap a heel in front of your body, bring it back, and tap your other heel in front of your body, all gooing as fast as the "duff duff duff duff", this looks pretty good by the way, now try doing a figure 8 in front of your body,,, umm draw an 8 with one hand. Keep doing this till you can do it blindfolded...now with the other hand, follow your figure 8 hand. so now you have two hands doing the figure 8 and it all looks super :) you sorta have the total basic move and just experiment in front of the mirror all the time and see what looks best, ps: Speed is just blurred mistakes umm, add me to msn for more tips, I have been raving for over a year now and I am pretttyyyyyyy dammn good!!!!

plur!
