I'm a fire performer who lives in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. I have been performing for about five years now, and I've performed shows for hotels, birthday parties, clubs, and festivals. Shows range any where from 5-30 minutes; I use multiple props, and I can include fireworks into any show!
Austin and his team put on a great show for my moms 50th birthday party. We were dealing with inclement weather and they stayed positive. I chose to pay the extra fee for fireworks, definitely recommend doing the same. Thanks Austin!
Response from Austin Riggs Fire Performance:

What to Expect
I like to talk to my audiences and get them engaged. I use several different props, so in between each segment I will take a minute to talk to the crowd to give them an idea of what's coming next and to get them excited!
Austin always loved to spin stuff. When he was young, he would go outside and collect sticks that were long and sturdy enough to be staffs, and he would spend hours outside practicing with them. By the age of twelve, he felt he could handle a staff pretty well, so it was no surprise that when he first saw someone spinning a staff with fire, his only thought was "I bet I could do that no problem."
When he was 17, he asked for his first fire staff for Christmas. His brave and forbearing mother agreed, and Austin found a new Passion.
Since then, Austin has learned to fine-tune his spinning style to be that of a professional performer. He first started performing in Pensacola Florida, where he grew up, with a fire troupe called Up in Flames. Now, Austin lives and performs in Pennsylvania.
Additional Booking Notes
I have my own speaker and my own microphone. My speaker is chargeable, so access to a power outlet is not necessary.

I like to perform to Lindsey Stirling or David Garrett songs the most, as well as a few pop songs. I can perform to almost any kind of music, and I do take requests.
Influences & Inspiration
Srikanta Barefoot is my favorite Fire Performer, and the person I've learned the most from in the art of Fire Dancing.
