Fire Fire Fly was designed for dancers, but can be used as a fun flow prop for manipulation! The Fire Fly is a little fire head on a thin chain connected together between two spring cages made of steel. There are two different spring cages with different length of chain.
The Fire Fly can also be used as a “mono poi” if desired. The spring cages are fixed to the fingers with a leather loop. The size of the loop is adjustable with its screw to suit anyone’s finger. The prop is ultra lightweight at only 5 ounces! Be sure to keep the leather loop away from paraffin. If it sucks up some paraffin accidently, do not use the Fire Fly!
For a fun new prop to play around with or even to incorporate into a performance, the Fire Fly is an excellent addition with a small learning curve!

Spinning fire in public spaces can be dangerous, and you are responsible for any and all damage to property and injury to yourself and others. The North American Fire Arts Association has resources for fire artists including safety, insurance and guidelines for obtaining fire permits.
