Beginners short courses in Fire Twirling


Fire dancing is about action, suspense, danger and fun. Originating from Polynesia and other parts of the Pacific, Fire dancing incorporates grace, movement and agility within what appears to be a spectacular sphere of fire.

Now in it's 13th year, the Fire Skills Beginners Short Course has introduced the art of fire to over 500 students with many finding it to be a passion they can’t get enough of. This makes it the most prolific course of it's kind around with proven results.

Specifically designed for the beginner to intermediate level, students are taken through the tips and tricks of Staff and Poi twirling with a supervised fire night at the end of term to put those newly acquired skills in to practice.
