What Can I Expect
Learn to play with the flames and become like dragons on these exhilarating fire classes! We can’t quite believe that fire eating and breathing classes actually exist, but they do. And yes, this is the sort of thing that always comes up with a ‘don’t try this at home’ message when you see fire artists on the telly, but all classes are fully insured and your safety is paramount. Let’s see if you’ve got the fire in your belly to become a firebreather!
These astonishing fire lessons take place at The Fire School in the heart of London’s East End. It’s a really cool place given over to all sorts of artistic and performance teaching, with pupils coming from all over the world to learn everything from fire poi and fans, to angle grinding and fire special effects. These popular classes have been specially curated for would-be dragons with no previous experience and the school specalise in teaching beginners.
You’ll be amazed what fire tricks you can learn in just a few hours. And we say tricks, but in reality there’s no hidden secrets or cheats. You might think something is rubbed on the skin or put in the mouth to protect you from the fire but there isn’t. Fire eating and breathing is all about handling and manipulating the naked flame and knowing how to do it safely, with the right equipment and in the right environment.
With the coaching and encouragement of the teachers, you will step out from your comfort zone during these fire classes and into the mystical world of fire arts. All teachers are hugely experienced entertainers and performers who are incredibly dedicated to The Fire School, where pupils arrive somewhat inquisitive about what they’re about to do and leave as true fire breathing dragons.
And let’s face it, once you’ve attended fire school if anyone ever asks you if you’ve got a party trick, showing off your fire skills will probably blow everyone else’s little turns out of the water, as you eat fire and blow huge plumes of flames into the air. So, go on, you know you want to. Sign up for fire eating classes and surprise everyone (including yourself!) with your new-found dragon skills.
