Fire Fans Lesson

50


50 simbi per session

Fans are originally a martial arts prop which have been adapted in recent decades to become a versatile dance prop. With fans you can express your creative self as well as create geometric patterns and do tricks. I'll teach you basics of fan dance/fan spinning as well as getting comfortable with and understanding the element of fire. All props would be provided by me but if you have your own, please bring them :)

Training & Qualifications


Since 2011, fans have been one of my main props as a fire dancer and I have taught/performed fans (fire and non-fire) in a plethora of settings. I've choreographed 10-person fire fans performances for Burning Man, worked in a collaborative trio for the Flow Show SF, and taught and performed solo and with partners. My full "flow arts" resume is too long to post here but I'm happy to email it upon request!

Availability & Preferences


Afternoons and early evenings are the best times for me to meet. I'm able to host (in Berkeley) or meet in a pro or a location that has relatively soft ground and preferably mirrors (mirrors are not necessary however).

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

Mel was a fantastic teacher. I really think I learned a lot. She showed me the basic formations and logic behind the movements. I am going to practice... my foundation moves, then start getting creative =) Thanks so much!show more

Mel is a patient and interesting teacher! She clearly loves hooping. I had a lot of fun learning some tricks with her, and was glad I was able to help... with her computer.show more

Mel is one of the most skilled fire hoop artists I know. Her fan technique is the stuff of legend. Every time I see her, she's leveled up. I have seen her teach an entire class of people to do very complicated tech. Highly recommend this beautiful soul.

I have seen many of Mel's performances and she always is well rehearsed and on point. She has many skills as a flow artist and trains very hard to expand her knowledge about different props, styles, and movements. I am sure she can teach the essential skills of commanding a stage and performing with fire.
