Conducting innovative and interdisciplinary research can be tricky! Take it from Adele Diamond, one of the 15 most influential neuroscientists in the world: “My grant applications to fund basic neuroscience research … have been continuously funded by the government for over 25 years. But when I request funding for solid research on the benefits on dance, music, or heaven forbid youth circus, reviewers eyes glaze over. They say ‘Study dance? That sounds flaky.’”

If you’d like to help support my poi research and endeavors, visit or watch the video to find out how you can help. You can donate as little as $1 a month…and every little bit helps!

Kate is also looking for opportunities to continue researching poi in 2018…know of something / someone that might be interested? Shoot her an email:

THANK YOU to my current patrons
