EDIT: The start date for this class has been postponed 2 weeks, for a few reasons. One primary reason is.... the weather! Let's melt this stupid snow and get warmer already! Will be sooo much more awesome! We are ALL sick of the cold, I know.
Those signed up have been notified, and now we have time to gather some more people! Let's burn stuff!

Wanna play with fire?? NOW IS THE TIME!
Have you wondered where and how to even start? Well, here’s your chance! I got you!
Over 190 students have taken this Intro to Fire class, that I’ve been teaching consistently since 2013 – WOW!

These classes will cover all the bases, make sure you have all the right supplies, and teaches you from zero to performing for your friends and family in 5 weeks! This class is recommended for newbies and beginners that wish to learn properly and safely, in a comfortable and fun environment, with Fire Mama holding your hand the whole way! Fire play is my passion, and I'm so happy and excited to have continued support and requests for these classes!

This is a 5 week series, with classes on 5 Tuesdays, April 10 - May 1, 7-9 pm.

Teaching Fire Poi, Staff, Fans, or Hoop
Choose one! Hoopers should come with previous hooping experience. All other props will be taught basic skills. This class will focus primarily on fire, not on prop skills. (But, if you’re interested, I teach a separate poi class – ask me!)

Week 1: Order props, Homework - fire kit building!
Week 2: SAFETY and Instruction - ULTRA REQUIRED CLASS!!!
Weeks 3-5: Guided experience and specific instruction sessions.

You will leave this class series with all the props, accessories, tools, knowledge, and confidence you need to perform comfortably and safely with fire! Must choose only ONE prop to focus on for the entire class series. Once you officially join the class, you will be added to the class group page for resources and support. Must sign a liability and emergency contact form at the start of class #1! Fire play is a dangerous activity! Come learn with focus, respect, and safety as the top priority. You'll love it - it's a rush every time!

$180 for the entire 5 week series. Class #2 (SAFETY CLASS) is REQUIRED. You must attend this class or arrange for a make-up session prior to proceeding in the series, if it is missed. There are some extra costs for your fire kit supplies and personal fire props. ***You must plan to pay for your own props (cash or check) during the first class, so we can order them all together! I'm happy to give you specific prop recommendations, have samples for you to play with at our first class, and will help make this a smooth process all around! We can discuss specific costs further when you message me regarding class. Once you have all your gear, you'll have it for life!

Payment for the entire series is due prior to starting the classes. Click "Join or Going" on this event to show your intention, but you must contact me via private message to officially sign up and make payment arrangements.

***PAYMENT OPPORTUNITY - Pay the full $180 right away, OR put $100 down to hold your space in the class, with the remaining $80 due on Week 3. You are still required to pay for your prop ($60 - $120 depending) at Class #1.***

Maximum 10 students per class - first come first serve, and given the continued interest in these classes, I wouldn't be surprised if they max out, so don't dilly dally! However..... there is a class minimum of 4 students per class (I reserve the right to cancel the class, if the minimum is not reached).

New students will be added to the private “Intro to Fire with Fire Mama” FB group, which is an excellent resource for information, support, and community fire opportunities!

Classes are RAIN, SNOW, or SHINE! Come meet new friends, learn a new skill to amaze your friends and family, and feel the rush of playing with fire!

With fire love and respect -
Fire Mama
