FireTribe is South Africa’s leading Fire Dancing and Flow Arts Performance troupe. We have been performing since 2000 creating dazzling, and spectacular performances for events and functions in Cape Town, Johannesburg and other beautiful locations around Southern Africa.

Since first introducing fire dancing to Cape Town’s iconic beaches, FireTribe has entertained crowds at festivals & carnivals, conventions & conferences, birthdays & weddings, marketing events & corporate functions AND at the 2010 Football World Cup in South Africa. We have also been involved in feature films, commercials, television shows and music videos – but that’s far from a complete list for our versatile, experienced team.

Our performances are an exhilarating combination of skill and state of the art equipment and can be adapted to suit the available space and unique needs of any event. We also offer unique exeriences such as the Fire Blessing or our Fire Sculptures that can be custom made for any special occassion or event branding.

We believe that the reason for our success lies in the fact that we are not just a group of talented performers doing our own thing ‘on stage’. Instead, we are a team who is focused on presenting our audience with a mesmerising visual experience, both untamed and choreographed. It is truly a thing of beauty – a flame that will be remembered well after it has gone out.

Meet the Tribe


Over the years we have taught hundreds of people how to spin poi in our Weekly Training Sessions and Workshops and have introduced fire dancing to countless others.

We believe that knowledge should be shared because, firstly, it's always more fun when there are more people to play with, and secondly, we believe that the practice of Flow Arts can teach valuable lessons that go well beyond the walls of the classroom.

We are therefore proud members of South Africa’s Flow Arts Community and are active in groups such as Cape Town Flow Arts and the South African Balance and Flow Arts Collective. We also team up with OddWheel Unicycles every second last Sunday of the month for Cape Town’s Play Park Sessions.

Once a month we also facilitate a Clifton Fire Jam for the fire dancers of Cape Town on the wind protected Clifton 2nd beach. The date for these fire dancing jams is only released the week before so make sure you receive event updates from FireTribe's Facebook page.


FireTribe is also South Africa’s leading manufacturer of high quality fire and flow toys. We were one of the pioneers of fire dancing in South Africa and are therefore committed to producing only the best products available. This is why over the last 15 years, FireTribe has become synonymous with excellent quality and service.

All of our props are put through rigorous durability testing. As a result, this ensures that you can play to your heart’s content without worrying about breaking or damaging anything.

A large portion of our equipment is custom made meaning you can be sure that your new toys will be the perfect fit for you and your unique style. Requests are always welcome.

Our products can be ordered online. Once your automated invoice is generated we will then confirm your order and send our banking details for EFT payment via email.
