We had a wonderful time at the Tiki Hut performing at their Full Moon Party! We were also excited that our Number 1 photographer, Charlie Snyder, was on hand to capture some of the magic.

Heard of Mosaic yet?

Hello Friends!

Heard of Mosaic, yet? On the weekend of August 17- 18, 2013, the Atlanta area is going to host the South East Mosaic Dance Festival which will feature dance workshops and performance opportunities over the course of two days. We have created this dance event to bring together different disciplines of dance and performance. The three main areas of dance are categorized into Belly Dance, Burlesque, and Flow Arts. Flow Arts will cover those dancers/performers the integrate dance with skill-based prop manipulation. We are currently taking applications for teachers of all levels and vendors for all categories to sell merchandise. Flow Arts are to include but not limited to: any fire/LED props (fans, poi, etc.); hooping; all juggling (diabolo, devil sticks, etc.); aerialists; circus arts (acro-balance, clowning, etc.); and pirates. The time slots available are for 120 minutes (90 minute minimum) for workshops. There will also be a stage for performance, if you are so inclined. You must register if you wish to perform.

If you are interested in joining our celebration or know of friends/fellow performers that might be interested, please send them my way as I will be the contact for the Flow Arts category. Then go to the website and fill out the application. Remember to include a description of what you teach or will be selling. It should be really fun bringing all these groups together! It is chance to meet like-minded individuals, make new friends, and catch up with old friends. After all, we are all tiny pieces that make up the big picture. We hope you can be part of it. So be sure to spread the word about South East Mosaic Dance Festival! Our idea is to bring the different communities together for the love of our dance. It is an amazing opportunity to attend whether you are teaching or learning. Help us build Mosaic and join in our dance community celebration!

Thank you,
Alexandra Mitchell

Balefire at Roy’s Hideaway on New Year’s Eve

We will be rocking the gay resort scene as we ring in the new year with some excellent folks. They are having 5 days of unbridled frolic you would be hard pressed to top culminating in a awesome party at which we will be performing 2 fire sets. Come and help us burn in the new year!

Balefire at the Haunted Oasis

Come and see us at the Haunted Oasis. We are going to joining many talented and lovely folks while they channel their inner trick-or-treaters!

Post Apocalyptic Burners

Woad and Doghead managed to finish the Run For Your Lives zombie 5k. It was grueling and treacherously slippery as we were being pursued through the Georgia countryside by the undead. Afterwards we performed fire to a number of great bands at the after-party. We also got to see cast members from The Walking Dead. Good times and a great run! We can’t wait to do it again next year!

Post-run, pre-fire!
