What do you call fire performers? Fire breathers & twirlers, dancers, spinners?

What do you call fire performers? Fire breathers & twirlers, dancers, spinners, and someone who plays with fire?

So what is the correct terminology to call a person or a group of people that play with fire toys?  If you want to book a fire thingy person then this article will help you to choose.

Fire dancers? Fire breathers & twirlers? Fire performers? Fire spinners? Fire artists? Hippies? Crazy folk? Arsonists? People who that want to smell of fuel? Or just want to have lots of fun and stay active and warm?

There is no correct way to call someone who plays with fire. Myself I like to be called a fire artist or Fire dancer. First a fire artist because I like to stay as creative as possible with the fire, I love to create artistic videos and pictures when not performing. While performing I would call myself a fire dancer, as I like to dance with the fire and the music being played. But whoever you ask they will give you their own answer on what to call them depending on what they do!

If you’re trying to book a fire performance for an event then I recommend choosing key words like Fire Entertainment, Fire Performances and Circus Fire Shows. It’s always sensible to write professional fire..……..

But it’s best to be more specific about what you’re looking for.

If your looking for a Tribal fire show? Add the word Tribal to the above –

Tribal Fire Entertainment & Tribal Fire Performances.

Carnival Fire Entertainment – Carnival Fire Performances 

Kung Fu Fire Entertainment – Live percussion and fire performances. 

Then add your local area into the search;

Tribal Fire performance on the Gold Coast

Circus Fire Shows Brisbane

Professional Fire Entertainment in Byron Bay


You should find a lot more professional fire Entertainers with the style your looking for. It’s always a good option to voice what your looking for in your event when you approach a company, ask them to send any videos and pictures of your desired theme. This way you know what your getting long before they arrive.

I found this article on https://www.gigsalad.com/Dance/Fire-Dancer and thought it would be helpful to choose the safest and most entertaining fire show.

About Booking Fire Dancers

When hiring fire dancers and entertainers, a variety of options are available to astound and astonish the guests at your festival, fair, corporate party, or special event. Fire dancers are an especially great choice for beach parties and Hawaiian themed events.

There are a few things you should keep in mind as you hire a fire dancer. First, find a fire dancer who specializes in the area of dance you want for your event. Do you want someone that performs poi dancing or someone that does tricks like fire eating or flame throwing? Please note: Fire tricks are dangerous, and there is always the risk of an accident. Another very important thing is to inquire about liability and insurance. Ask about specifics: Will the fire dancers need a special type of floor to dance or perform on? How much area is needed? Last, be sure to ask for pictures and video of the fire performer’s past performances. Also, read reviews and get references from past clients. You want to be sure you book the best for your special event.

I also had the same problem explaining to a news reporter from the Today Show (Gold Coast) what should he call me on TV. Here is the video, it explains why I believe the word twirling should not be used for my performances. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-MZcr9PYek.

I wish you all the best in choosing a fire performance for your next event. Make sure they are professional and insured with $20,000,000 public liability insurance and I promise you will enjoy every moment of this powerfully entertaining element.
