Once again I had the pleasure to perform as a Fire Dancer during Waterfire in Providence, RI. This event was also part of the Chinese Culture Night, so there was a great deal of opportunity to get to enjoy some traditional dance forms as put on by local chapters of the Confucious Institute.
It was a little strange in that the tide was so low that I didn't get to perform on a boat all night. While that did mean I got to enjoy some actual foot-work, I did realize I missed the experience of floating down the canal in front of thousands of people.
The jury is still out on whether I get to perform as a fire breather at these events again, and while I would have liked to perform my fire eater routine, the wind had other ideas.
Until October 11th!
