This year Safire Entertainment aided in providing fire dancers and LED spinners for Calgary’s New Years Even Celebration at Olympic Plaza. Check out a video with some of our LED spinners entertaining the guests on the Calgary Herald website here: Calgary New Year’s Celebration Video.
“See some sights and sounds from the City of Calgary’s New Year’s Eve Family Dance Party and the fireworks Flames fans were treated to after their game against the Flyers.”
This Red Deer stilt walker was great addition to to the Red Deer Festival of Trees event and can made a BIG impression. Just check out the photo below of Safire performing for the Red Deer Festival of Trees Cirque Du Noel Gala. The awesome Chris Visser was also providing roving magic and balloon twisting for the event.
When a photo was requested it was suggested “why don’t you pose by those trees.” It seemed like a great idea, what an excellent background for the photo… except… do you see any trees? Nope. With her massive height, huge skirt, and epic wing span Safire the stilt walker managed to completely dwarf out the Christmas trees.
This friday Safire Entertainment provided custom Fire and Ice Entertainment for the Medicine Hat Chamber of Commerce Business Awards. We provided a range of entertainment for the awards ceremony which included a roving contortionist, an Ice Queen stilt walker, an LED ball juggler and a group fire show with four fire dancers. Ice themed costuming was produced and provided by Safire at the request of the client to match their nights theme of ‘Fire and Ice’. Please feel free to contact us for custom entertainment to match your events theme.

This past Saturday evening was Mercury Opera’s Calgary production of Fiamma! and the event went off with a bang! This year Safire Entertainment provided a four person troupe fire show as well as our Fire Bird stilt walker. This year’s event was held at the beautiful Old City Hall which was the perfect backdrop and set for three amazing opera singer’s who sung from high up in the balcony.
“It was a cornucopia of art and performance; a whimsical feast of culture for the senses, explosive vocal virtuosity combined with fiery spectacle designed to take away the autumn chill and heat up Downtown Calgary’s urban landscape. We were the first to see the unveiling of MOCA’s fall programming- beginning with Made in Calgary: 1980s Part 2 as well as installations by famed Max Streicher and Dave Dyment in the hippest pop-culture event of fall 2013.” – Mercury Opera
Had a blast providing Edmonton wedding entertainment this weekend. Wedding are always really fun to perform for because it is such a positive celebration and I’m a sucker for love stories. I always enjoy hearing the speeches, the laughs and the happy memories and stories told of how the happy couple came together. This wedding was an Indian wedding and I have to say: I LOVE INDIAN WEDDINGS! Honestly, the energy was amazing, people get up and dance like there’s no tomorrow. It’s amazing to see the dance floor absolutely packed for hours with no sign of stopping. Here’s a short little vine video I made from the party.

So for years I have been avoiding fire breathing. I eat fire, spin fire staff, fire poi, and three fire hoops at once but I’mI’ve always been scared of fire breathing. Well the other night after my performance at Beerfest I was staying at The ‘Where’ House with professional Sideshow Performers Ryan Stock and Amber-Lynn of Comedy Daredevil. I decided it was time to take some training in the art of fire breathing. After some quality training, detailed guidance, important information, and one-on-one practice I was able to blow this blast. As of April 2013, I finally learned how to fire breath, I’ll be practicing all summer to improve my blast size and consistency.
“Why be a fire breather, when you can be a dragon!!!”
