FIRE DANCE 101: Safety First
with Johanna

So you want to play with fire? If the answer is YES, this workshop is for you!
Fire dancing; It's magical, mystical, powerful and enticing! However; SAFETY FIRST! Whether you are an experienced fire dancer, a newbie, or just need a refresher, it's never a bad idea to brush up on safety procedures.
This class will cover the staging/stage set up, performance safety, questions to ask before your performance, and hands-on experience putting out the flame at several stages. Also, learn what you should have in your fire dancing toolbox and more!
Students will have the opportunity to try out several fire props that are popular with belly dancers; Fans, Palms, & Sword. We'll discuss Poi and Staff principles as well.
This course is a prerequisite to join in any of our Fire Dance classes. If you can not make this date, we are available for a one-on-one lesson.
No fire props required, but if you have some please bring! No experience necessary. This course is also GREAT for non-dancer friends who will be acting as your SAFETY when you practice at home, it helps keep us dancers safe!
