Fundraiser Benefit Performers

September 26, 2016

We love performing.  We're passionate, excited, and enamored with that adrenaline rush that comes from lighting up our fire dancing props and stepping out on stage.  When the show is performed at a fundraiser benefit for a good cause, it adds a whole other dimension to our show (and our lives). …

The Calm Before the Storm

March 29, 2013

We made it home from Japan, mostly in one piece, and I have been sleeping for about two weeks straight.  It's been wonderful.

I feel like this down time has really restored me on a deep level.  I am so grateful to all the folks at Fire Pixie Entertainment who supported the business during our Huis…

Fire Dancing with Fireworks, Lasers, and Fire Cannons

February 23, 2013

Last night was amazing.  

We've been fire dancing our butts off here at Huis Ten Bosch.  It's been hard.  It's been cold, and we've battled through injuries and broken fire tools and changing schedules and braved blizzards and sleet and gusting wind.  With one week left, we were needing a bit of a…

Onstage Superpowers: a Fire Dancer's Secret Weapon

February 22, 2013

The Onstage world marches to a different beat than the offstage world.  Time bends and stretches.  Every fire performer has experienced this. One second onstage feels like approximately 3o seconds of offstage time, and an entire minute of onstage time is just a moment short of forever.   We fire dan…

Fire Hula Hoop Upgrades

February 14, 2013

 

hula hoop wicks

I have a fantastic fire hula hoop from Holistic Hooping and I just love it.  It's light and fast, and easy to assemble and disassemble for soaking.

However.... I like LOTS of fire.  The wicks on this hoop are pretty little, and they looked sort of small and sad next to all our other fire to…

I'm Sorry Darrell!

January 11, 2013

Saturday morning and it's beautifully sunny and cold outside. We're a little tired and achey - our show count goes up on the weekends, and that extra few burns really takes it out of me, but there was fresh crab with melted butter for breakfast so that helps.

It's not the fire dancing. The fire danci…

New Year's Eve in Japan-sterdam

December 31, 2012

We survived our first and most difficult day of performances.. it's all downhill from here.

Yesterday was New Year's Eve.  It started out with a relaxing morning wherein I finished my first drawing and hung it on the wall.  I'm unreasonably proud of it.
After a walk to the Family Mart (our loc…

Purim Fire Dance Show

March 9, 2012

Last night we did a fire show for a local Synagogue to celebrate Purim.  Since I'm not Jewish, I didn't know much about this holiday.  I'd heard it was a rather fun one.  Last year one of my Jewish friends brought me cookies, called Hamantaschen which was OK with me (cookies are always ok with me…

Halloween

October 30, 2010

I love doing halloween fire shows! I love parties where absolutely everyone dresses up in costume. I love the challenge of having to give my costume that extra "oomph" so I still stand out as a performer. I LOVE HALLOWEEN.

I did a stilt walking show at the Live 105 Spookfest last night, and that wa…
