Join us over the course of seven weeks as we progress through a step-by-step process of developing beginner staff skills as well as a technical and practical approach to fire safety. We will also discuss our relationship to fire, how the fire element plays into our inner lives and you will learn to express yourself with fire using fire staff spinning. The final day of this seven week course will take place at an outdoors, off-site location and offer an opportunity for everyone to get a chance to spin fire in a safe environment.
