History in the Making

FireWorks Dance Company (est. 1998) began well over a decade ago when a collection of Melbourne's finest independent fire dancers, jugglers and percussionists began to collaborate under one banner. No-one could have foreseen the impact that such a group could make on a live audience and the public response was overwhelming. From this beginning, FireWorks Dance Company was born.

These early performances were staged in the heart of St. Kilda, and this location has since become internationally recognised as a thriving Mecca for fire performance artists. FireWorks Dance Company was the only one of its kind at its conception, and spent many years showing audiences, agents and venues that they go the extra mile, to embody the highest levels of professionalism and presentation.

As a result FireWorks Dance Company was responsible for inspiring the influx of fire artists we now have in Australia today. Australia is lucky to have such a large number of fire professionals, enough to rival most other countries in the world.

Once FireWorks got it’s foot in the door and became recognised as a high quality professional company, offers to showcase it’s talents for major events and opportunities came pouring in. Some of the most memorable moments being a documentary for ABC TV 1998, 2001 Telstra Awards, 2005 Deaflympics Opening Ceremony, 2007 Moomba Waterfest and the Kenworth 100 year anniversary in Alice Springs. Not to mention the awesome time we had starring in movies such as Hollywood blockbuster Queen of the Damned and Aussie comedy Takeaway.

2003 saw the launched of The Secret Cabaret. This production is a trip back to the days of the circus sideshow with a touch of Vegas thrown into the mix. It was the start of the “circus cabaret” genre, borrowed heavily from the classic German cabaret scene. Presented is the cream of the substantial catalogue of FireWorks performances...with a few surprises along the way. Everything old is new again and so it is with cabaret, as this style of entertainment makes a come back. After The Secret Cabaret’s appearance at The Spiegletent for the Melbourne International Arts Festival, this new cabaret style influenced the nature of “Le Clique” and its influence is still seen to the present-day.  

FireWorks has run many fire, circus and dance workshops since it’s conception. They share their skills with the community, many of whom have gone on to become avid fans. It is this passion and inspiration that has propelled the heart of the company from its humble beginnings in St Kilda to the respected and world-class company it is today.
