This guide is a general introduction to fire safety procedures that minimise risk when spinning fire. However, fire spinning is an inherently dangerous activity, and there will always be some risk no matter what safety precautions are taken! This guide includes information on:

  • What to wear and what materials are fire safe
  • Different fuels and what fuel you can use to spin fire
  • Fire safety equipment and fire safety protocols
  • What your fuel set up should look like
  • How to light up safely
  • (Very) general first aid

FireLily Dance highly recommends having an experienced spinner with you if you are lighting up for the first time!
