boracay phoenix fire dancers

This group of fire dancers were performing along the vibrant night life section of White Beach in Boracay – around Station 2.

They’re called the Boracay Phoenix Fire Dancers and I was quite impressed by one of them – she has really good skills.

There were multiple performances – both indoors and outdoors simultaneously, and the latter having no constraints with ceilings and such, could perform aerial tricks.

One of them did an amazing catch after throwing the meteor hammer up in the air – she didn’t catch it the first time, but managed to snag it on the second try. It was the monsoon season so the wind speed was rather fierce, I was amazed she even managed to catch it at all!

The Boracay Phoenix Fire Dancers also lit a lot of cigarettes by spinning the fire dancing apparatus close to the cancer sticks.

…and they also managed to scare a lot of people shitless by spinning the meteor hammers around their faces. smirk

I have seen an equally good fire dancing performance in Penang (of all places) and really wanted to pick it up but the closest I ever got was fire breathing. Heh.

  1. Hi Sixthseal! I got here from your Facebook page. :-) Gosh! You’ve breathed fire before? How long did you have to practise for that?

    • Hello Amy!

      Yeah, I did that for a film project, it wasn’t hard at all – doesn’t take a lot of skill, all you need to do is to expel the kerosene with enough force for it to completely leave your lips (so you don’t burn yourself). :)

      I tried 3-4 times with water and proceeded straight to do it with kerosene. Heh! It was a lot of fun.

      Thanks for reading! :)

  2. fantastic experience there.. hehe :)

  3. I’ve always loved the Philippines…not for the fire dancing though. Love the music – they’re all so talented – and love the people, very nice and friendly.

    • Indeed! I love the people over there too, as well as their culture.

      I’ve been approached by customs officers and duty free shop clerks about my gigantic flip flops, generally a very nice and friendly bunch of people. :)

  4. So what are your plans for the weekend? Another long one coming up, September 16th. Have fun, cheers!

    • I don’t have plans for September 16th, think I have something going on around that time. :)

      Hope you had a great weekend mate and see you back in Sibu!

  5. i think the last time i watched such flaming performance was at a circus? god it’s like more than 10 years ago =.=

    my weekend will be spent on typing away on keyboard. trying to churn out a journal manuscript…yawn…

    • Nice! I haven’t been to a circus in a long time, it’ll be fun to go to one. :)

      Alas, oh well, at least you have the weekend to catch up on work.

      All the best Constance!

  6. are you still a frequent goer of genting highlands? :)

    • I don’t go up that often anymore – used to go up almost every weekend at one point but now I just go when I feel like it.

      I think I’ve only been there 3 times this year coz I did a lot of traveling and road trips to other places. :)

  7. Ahhhh icic…alright…cause I stumbled upon your blog and see you have quite a history with the genting casinos…at least to my understanding…any other place to chat with ya besides this chat box?
