Dancing with fire is like taming a dangerous element. The dancer is trying to tear through the ambient music, and the poi, fans or staff becomes an extension of his or her hands, as they slash through the darkness. This is an alternative form of dance, allowing for rhythmic dances characterized by an unprecedented visual style. In addition, the fire adds an element of tension, as it teases the crowd's primal instincts, although we always make sure that both dancers and spectators are perfectly safe.
