Fire dancing (also known as “fire twirling,” “fire spinning,” “fire performance,” or “fire manipulation“) is a group of performance arts or disciplines that involve manipulation of objects on fire. Typically these objects have one or more bundles of wicking, which are soaked in fuel and ignited.
Some of these disciplines are related to juggling or baton twirling (both forms of object manipulation), and there is also an affinity between fire dancing and rhythmic gymnastics. Firedancing is often performed to music. Fire dancing has been a traditional part of cultures from around the world, and modern fire performance often includes visual and stylistic elements from many traditions.

I was blessed to see and snap these images during my visit to Hawaii at a luau I attended.
It was so fun to be able to capture these images. I just love them and wanted to share them with you.
Did I mentions that Hawaii is now my most favorite place in the world for this Vancouver portrait photographer. uh-huh! 😉
Have a great weekend! xo angela
