Lessons & Workshops


ave you ever wanted to learn to twirl?
Do you have a passion for fun? (or fire?)

We offer goup workshops and private fire twirling lessons for beginners to experts in fire staff twirling and fire poi spinning. In just a few sessions you can build the skills and confidence you need to be wowing your friends and family in this dynamic art!

Apologies to workshop students, this week's workshop (2nd March) has been cancelled due to rain. Everyone previously booked in for 2nd March is welcome to attend the next session (9th March). Please let us know if you can attend. We are hopeful that the wet weather will be clearing soon.

Workshop Details:

What will I learn?
We have 4 experienced trainers available and teach concurrent staff and poi workshops. Beginner and intermediate classes run every week as well as focussed advanced workshops for staff and poi. Follow these links for a full outline of each course:
What to bring:
We will provide all necessary practice equipment and fire toys. Just bring yourself! You are welcome to bring your own toys if you would rather spin with them during the workshop of afterwards during the fire jam. For the (optional) post-workshop burn, wear comfortable, well fitted, non-flammable clothing (cottons, denims are excellent).

But I already know how to twirl...
Our advanced workshops are excellent for experienced twirlers who are seeking that extra challenge, or aiming to refine technique. Each week a different topic will be the focus of our advanced staff and advanced poi workshop series. Check out the course outlines above for details.

Under 18's:
If you are under 18 we would request a signed note from a parent / guardian that says that they have given their permission for you to learn to fire twirl with us.

Fire Safety:
In order to be good fire twirlers, we must all respect the importance of fire safety. Please have a read through and print our fire safety guidelines particularly if you are about to light up for the first time!

Can't make it to scheduled lessons?

No problem! We also offer private lessons and group workshops (up to 20 people) at a reduced price. Contact us to arrange a session near you, or for more information about our lessons and workshops.
