FOR ANYONE WHO WANTS TO DO MORE THAN STAND STILL AND SPIN
In addition to learning patterns in which the body is static (fire spinning), students will learn the patterns and techniques for turning, jumping, kicking, etc, in which the body is as implicated as the object (fire dancing).
Srikanta was the first Contemporary Fire Dancer featured by the Cirque du Soleil (2007-2010), performing over 700 shows using fire poi, fire staff, double fire staff & double fire swords. He has 15 years of experience fire dancing including his position of Fire Dancing Coach and Lead Fire Dancer for Cirque Du Soleil. Srikanta combines poi and staff technique with martial arts, acrobatics & dance to create dynamic fire shows. Likewise, he teaches his students to incorporate full-body movement, stage presence, dance & even acrobatics into their performances.
Srikanta has taught poi & staff workshops at locations worldwide since 2003 and recently released an Instructional Video Series called Dancing with the Fire Staff:
