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.

Circus Play Space




Our Circus Play Space will 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. Our props include juggling sacks and scarves, hula hoops, poi, staff, spinning plates, twirling ribbons, flower sticks and diabolo. No fire is used in the Circus Play Space.

Everyone is welcome to come and have a go. They can either play as they please, which works really well for the little ones. Or they can learn skills and tricks from our professional performers, which supervise the space at all times .

The Circus Play Space includes a 3 x 3m marquee, with plenty of props for both children and adults to enjoy. It can be run for just an hour, or over several days, depending on the size and nature of your event.


Festival Fun Workshops




If you're looking for fun and engaging workshops for your event, that cater to teens and adults, our Festival Fun Workshops are the perfect choice.

Workshops can be taught in poi spinning, staff spinning, hula hooping and juggling, with 30 to 60min per workshop. All workshops are taught by professional performers and can easily accommodate various levels of skill. No fire is used in these workshops.

The Festival Fun Workshops includes a 3 x 3m marquee and all workshop props.

The Workshops can be combined with our Circus Play Space, if you'd like to offer your event participants a mix of formal and informal activities.


Fire Spinning 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; first learning all skills without fire and only "lighting up" once a certain level of proficiency and confidence is reached.

Our Fire Twirling Workshops teach skills in poi and staff spinning 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, juggling sacks and hula hoops. Older students can use these, as well as poi, staff, flower sticks and diabolo.

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 2 hours, depending on the children's age, and include all equipment.


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.


Dance Workshops




Our Dance 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.
