WORKSHOPS



Whether you're looking for a bit of fun for the kids or to learn some serious skills, our workshops can cater to you.

We have been teaching fire and circus skills workshops for over 10 years and can cater to all ages, all levels of skill and any size event.

Festival Fun Workshops




Our Festival Fun workshops enhance the atmosphere of any community event, festival, fair or family corporate day. Our aim is to entertain and engage the little ones, while teaching the older children and adults real skills. These workshops can include juggling, hula hooping, poi and staff twirling, spinning plates, twirling ribbons and tumbling. No fire is used in any of the workshops.

The Festival Fun Workshops include a 4 x 4m marquee with plenty of props for both children and adults to enjoy. A combination of demonstrations, formal workshop activities and informal play add to the fun atmosphere.

These workshops can be run for just an hour or over several days, depending on the size and nature of your event.


Fire Twirling Workshops




Fire twirling is a fun and engaging activity suitable for teenagers and adults. However, due to the skills required, these workshops are run as a multi-session course, learning all skills without fire first and only "lighting up" once a certain level of proficiency and confidence is reached.

Our Fire Twirling Workshops teach skills in poi and staff twirling along with fire safety. Students begin by learning all moves without fire first. Once the students are confident in themselves and their skills, they may, under supervision, "light up" and try their moves with fire. Safety and responsible use of fire are emphasized in these workshops.

Along with providing an engaging and fun activity, these Fire Twirling Workshops are great for building self-confidence and self-esteem. All students benefit from the increased physical activity, as well as improvements in coordination.


School Group Workshops




All School Group Workshops are run without fire and focus on the fun of learning circus skills. The props children use in the workshops are selected based on their age and level of coordination. We generally teach young children using juggling scarves, spinning plates, twirling ribbons and hula hoops. Older students can use these, as well as poi and staff.

Our workshops, as well as being fun, are a great way for children to get active. They gently work the whole body while improving coordination and motor skills. They also promote ambidexterity and creative thinking. Additionally, as children progress through moves, they build self-confidence and self-esteem.

Workshops can run from just 30 minutes to two hours in length (depending on the children's age) and include all equipment. At the end of the workshop, children are shown how to make their own hoop, poi and staff, to enable them to continue practising at home.

Performer Workshops




Whether you are a street or stage performer, working on a new show or refreshing an existing one, adding fire can really give your show the lift it needs.

In our Performer Workshops we work with you, one on one, to see how you can best incorporate fire into your show. This includes prop and/or effect design, custom manufacturing of fire equipment, teaching you how to work with fire and fire safety. Everything you need to safely and confidently add fire to your act and really take it to the next level.

Workshops are held privately by appointment.

Dancers Workshops




Our Dancers Workshops are aimed at dancers that wish to incorporate fire into their existing dance styles, to add an extra element of excitement and flair to their performance. Fire fingers, fire fans, palm fire and fire-eating sticks look stunning when used in dance styles such as belly dance, burlesque or in contemporary routines.

Dancing with fire can be taught on an individual or group/class basis. Lessons can be one off or ongoing, depending on the complexity and versatility you wish to achieve.
