VIDEO LINK FROM A MOM
A mom in one of my classes stumbled upon this YouTube clip and was amazed by the rhythmic control of the Fire Dancer (this dancer is twirling “poi,” chains with fire on the end). I’m so glad she sent it along to me — It’s so cool! I noticed how, like when we use balls in class, the fire gives a stunning visual representation of the music moving through space — you can really see the musical shift when the song switches to a faster tempo (a little over two minutes into the clip).
Don’t’ worry…I won’t bring fire balls to music class. ;-)
