FAQ’s

How do I book you?

Where do you perform?

Our performers are mainly booked to entertain in the New England area (Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania) but are available to perform anywhere in the world.

How long are your shows?

We customize the length of our shows to fit your needs.  A single feature “act” is usually the length of a song or about 4 to 6 minutes.  Our feature shows range anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour in length.  For roving walk-around entertainment, we book by the hour and the number of sets that a performer will do in a given hour is based on what skill they are performing.

What are your rates?

Our rates are based on a number of factors such as length of performance, type of performance (choreographed show or roving), number of performers, type of skill (e.g. aerials or fire dancing) and travel distance.  We offer package discounts when larger numbers of performers are booked for a single event or when our performers are booked for multiple events.

Are you insured?

Yes, all of our performers are fully insured and we can provide certificates of additional insured upon request.

Do you perform fire during the day?

Yes. Darkness is ideal for viewing fire shows, but we have done numerous day-time fire shows.  We suggest that the show take place in the shade when possible to increase visibility of the fire.

What kind of space do you need for fire performing?

For outdoor shows, we require an area of at least 10 feet by 10 feet with a height clearance of at least 15 feet. Acceptable surfaces include but are not limited to: grass, brick, stone, wood and concrete. Performance area should be free of holes, debris, broken glass and other hazards.

Can you perform fire indoors?

We can perform with fire indoors given permission from the venue, permits from the local fire department and fulfillment of a stringent set of criteria for the performance space. For venues that do not allow indoor fire shows, we perform with LED (or glow) props. Please see our Glow Shows page for images and video of LED props in use.

What are your safety practices?

Safety is our number one priority, and we adhere to a very strict set of safety protocol. Our protocol address the safety of the audience, venue and the performers. A detailed outline of our safety practices is available upon request.

Do you provide your own music?

We do provide our own music. We can either work with a DJ at your event or bring our own PA system.

What is poi?

Poi is an art form that originated with the Maori in New Zealand. The Maori would swing balls on cords while dancing to music, possibly as a means of increasing strength and flexibility. The art of poi has evolved and diverged from its roots as people have become aware of all of the possible patterns that can be made with something as simple as two balls on cords. Poi also evolved as an art when it became married to the element of fire. Special poi were developed that could be lit on fire allowing the dancer to, in essence, paint the night sky with fiery patterns and trails of flame.

What is partner poi?

Partner poi is a more recent innovation in poi spinning in which two or more spinners create patterns together, often intertwining their poi and spinning around each other. This becomes particularly exciting when fire is added to the picture.

What other fire props do you use besides poi?

Each of our shows varies, but, in addition to poi, we also incorporate staff, double staff, hoop, fans, dragon staff, and rope dart into our shows. Some shows include fire breathing, eating and contact fire as well.
