NileGuide Expert Says:
You must not leave the island without seeing them perform!
Various restaurants and bars
NileGuide Expert tip:
Schedules changes so ask your hotel where you can see them
The term "playing with fire" takes on a completely new dimension once you have gotten a glimpse of one of the island's incredible fire dancers. Swinging their fire-lit metal "poi", scantily clad men and women toss and dance these fire balls to the latest tunes, their bodies rhythmic, sensual, and bordering on acrobatic. Watching them perform against the setting sun is one kind of dreamy vision but stare at their fire against the blackness of night, and the experience is somewhere between captivating and mesmerizing. And if you are feeling the urge to light your own fire, the dancers will happily give you a lesson. Fire dancing can be seen at various bars and restaurants on the island- best to ask hotel concierge to confirm time and place.
