Calgary fire dancer, Safire brought the heat to Cochrane this year for their New Year’s Eve Celebration. She performed two fire acts in -25C. The first act was a playful fire poi dance to an excellent remix of Jingle Bells. The crowd loved the song and it worked perfectly for the rhythm of Safire’s poi routine.
Safire’s second fire performance was her specialty of fire hoop. As she began she yelled to the crowd to give her “more of that winter mitten clap.” With that, a dampened clapping pattern began. Dazzled by her ability to dance smoothly and seamlessly between her tricks a little girl joyfully asked Safire a question.
“How can you do that!?!?”
Safire’s response… “I tell really little kids that it’s magic but you know what it really is… lots and lot of practice!” Safire and the little girl chatted for a while longer until it was time for the New Year’s Eve fireworks. The crowd then headed out to catch a good view.
In addition to providing two fire performances, Indigo Circus also brought in some of our favourite roving characters, the LED Elves. These cute and playful characters spin LED poi and danced with LED wings and fans. These characters add fun and atmosphere to events. They moved around the space both indoors and out, greeting guests, and giving them a cool light display at the same time.
