Each experience is unique and hands-on. You will be hosted by locals in the area who will share with you the cultures found here in Polynesia.
Not only watch, join the show!
We will start with a brief history of the Samoan Fire-knife dance (Siva Afi). We will personally go over some of the basic moves with practice sticks as well as demonstrate fire safety. This will be a unique hands on learning experience for those who wish to participate. From there, we will put on a brief performance and during the show we will be inviting those who are comfortable to join us. You get a chance to play with the fire! Instead of just watching the fireknife dancer, you become the fireknife dancer! Even if it's just for a quick pose for the camera, you'll return home with pictures and experiences you just can't get anywhere else We look forward to facing the fire with you, mahalo for supporting local!
