ABOUT FIRE PERFORMANCES
Sasha is known for her choreographed performances that include dance, theatrics, acrobatics, interaction, and skill. She is rarely occupying one spot in the performance space for long and loves to utilize the whole performance area while giving individual attention to spectators throughout the show. As a multi-disciplinary fire artist, she is one of the few performers who can perform an hour long solo show without repeating acts.
Your guests will watch in amazement as Sasha puts fiery torches out with her mouth, dances with a blazing hula hoop in ways you never imagined, and executes mind melting backbends while spinning balls of fire just inches away from her face! You will FEEL the heat when Sasha breathes huge, towering plumes of fire!
Sasha has many costume styles and colors to choose from to fit your theme, and modesty level. You can even select a music style that best fits your event, or requests specific songs for her to choreograph acts to.
Sasha follows the highest safety standards for performing with fire. Fire performance should look dangerous, not be dangerous. She carries liability insurance, has the FDNY E-29 Fire Performer certificate of fitness, holds a Certificate of Education in Fire Safety for the Flow Arts from the Flow Arts Institute, and is always accompanied by a trained Fire Safety Technician. Sasha is also well versed in permitting procedures and can help you find out if a permit is needed for your event and file the paperwork.
Fire Shows can be performed inside or outside. Inside shows are subject to your local fire regulations.
You can find a visual list of the different fire acts below
Fire Eating is a slow, graceful, and controlled act. Sasha performs various fire eating skills such as vapor holds, teeth holds, tongue transfers, skin transfers, and fleshing. Sasha is able to get up close and personal with this act, giving you an incredibly close view. You'll be amazed as she lights parts of her own body on FIRE!
Stand back and get ready to feel the heat as Sasha breathes giant towering plumes of fire out of her mouth! This thrilling and high energy act will amaze you as she times the fire breaths with the intense beats of the music. As the most dangerous of all the acts, this one will leave you breathless!
Fire Hip Belt with Palm Torches
This belt with attached wicked spokes is strapped to Sasha's waist, accentuating each movement of her hips with fire. It is paired with palm torches, which are held in each hand. This act features tribal fusion belly dance and lots of variable speed movements and dance.
Two fans....on FIRE! These fire fans contain a LOT of flame! The fire fans are held in each hand and allow Sasha to move herself and the fans with precision to the transitions and pauses in the music, while also including full movement dance and fabulous fan spins!
Fire Hula Hoop
Yes, a hula hoop, on FIRE! You will be amazed as you watch Sasha execute incredible moves you never thought were possible with what you previously perceived to be a "kids toy". Watch her dance with this ring of fire, performing on and off the body moves to beat of the music.
Fire poi is definitely a crowd favorite! These two balls of fire on chains are spun with precision only inches from Sasha's body, face, and hair. Watch as Sasha spins these fireballs to the beat of the music. This is a much faster, more extreme act that will leave you in awe!
This visually stunning and unique act is a definite crowd pleaser! Starting with the Scepter on fire, the audience doesn't know what lies ahead. As the fire dims down during Sasha's introductory dance and the embers begin to flow, the crowd knows that this is something unlike they have ever seen. Faster, she dances and spins, getting the coals white hot as they start to emerge from their cage. And suddenly, BAM, she darts the Scepter creating incredible amounts of embers floating through the air! Watch as she walks through a wall of fluttering embers in the air and continues to dance with grace and danger.
Fire Sparkle Ropes
Not only are these rope version of Poi on fire and being spun at high speeds with BIG flames, but they are treated with a special additive that makes them SPARKLE! This extreme act is performed at high speed and is usually part of the finale. The audience goes WILD for this act!
Fire Flamethrower Lycopodium Sword
This unique and intense act will catch you by surprise! Starting slow and mysterious, you won't know what on earth happened as the music picks up and Sasha wields this sword with grace and precision to the music and creates beautiful trails of fire.
Fire Staff and Double Staves
You will be mesmerized by the quick spinning of this fiery twist on the traditional martial arts bo-staff. During this act, you'll watch as Sasha performs some vision blurring fast spins, one handed tosses, back-bending palm spins, and so much more with her 6 foot long fire staff or two short fire staves!
This wearable contraption is a truly one-of-a-kind design. It can be paired with the hip belt and palm torches, or with the grinder act. Or it can be worn solo for a theatrical styled performance. Sasha can also create custom fire lettering in the center of this piece.
