Do you need a spark for your event? Invite me! I'm a fire performer with a belly dance flare. I use various props including fire fans, palm torches, dragon staff, fire sword, and fire eating torches. I can dazzle your guests with fire eating tricks or flaming headdresses, choreographed or improvised dances, and alluring costumes or LED light props. I can perform with or without fire.
I'm a great addition to festivals, holidays, corporate events, pool parties, birthdays (child or adult), community events, music shows, themed events, or any party that needs a little more danger and excitement.
What's that... want more? Well, add variety and hire my friends too!
***Licensed and insured***
Very professional, punctual, and entertaining!!!!
Tina was great. My guests were literally ooing and ahing.
Response from Wildfire Tina:
Thank you so much! Performing at your party was lots of fun. 🔥
Tina brings so many different skill sets to her performances. She incorporates belly dance, she uses swords, fans, dragon staff, palm torches, and more. Her flame transfers and fire eating techniques are captivating as well. She blends all of these talents together with a mindful and graceful dance that will always leave you wanting more.
Response from Wildfire Tina:
Aw! Thank you!
Wildfire Tina is an incredible performer. She commands the stage and entrances audiences with her beautiful dancing and technical fire skills. I can't wait to have her perform again!
Response from Wildfire Tina:

What to Expect
I've done so many different shows, and I'm happy to create a special one for your unique event. Here are some popular options that clients have loved in the past to get you started brainstorming the experience you want...
Improvisational Fire Performance (1 dancer plus a safety person):
Dazzle your guests with a fire show involving multiple props. This is my most popular and affordable option for fire. Themed costuming included. My fire prop collection is quite extensive. A few crowd favorites include dragon staff and fire fans. Guests also love watching my daring fire eating tricks, which I try to work into every performance when the wind will allow.
Improvisational LED Performance (1 dancer):
All the pizazz of a fire performance but without the safety or permitting requirements. Themed costuming included. My lighted props include double staves, belly dance Isis wings, fans, and fiber optic whip. I can also wear LED lit costumes. This option is perfect for a party or club experience in need of a themed go-go dancer to hype up the energy!
Belly Dancing with Fire (1 dancer plus a safety person):
Spice up your next event with some Middle Eastern flavor and fire performance! Includes various belly dance costume options and belly dance fire props, such as balancing sword, palm torches, and fire tray.
Interactive Dance Performance (a HUGE hit at children’s parties!):
Children love to play with my dance props! So, I created an experience where they can join in the fun. I turn on some high energy tunes and facilitate play time with a huge bag of kid friendly props: hula hoops, batons, scarves, gymnastic ribbons, poi, etc. I show the children dance moves and encourage them to explore self expression through movement/dance. This option is a great hit at parties, neighborhood gatherings, and family friendly events. Includes a themed costume.
When not performing with fire, Tina is a high school English teacher, a certified yoga instructor, and a Fort Worth gardener extraordinaire.
She began belly dancing regularly and studying fire performance in 2016 and discovered she had a natural ability (as well as a love for all aspects of stage performance). Since then she studies regularly at a local belly dance studio called Crescent Moon Belly Dance where she performs in two professional troupes: The Texas Jewels and The Crescent Jewels.
Tina co-founded a DFW female fire performer collective called FemPyre and served on the leadership team from 2017 to 2018. During that time, she helped establish the first permitted open fire performance circle in Fort Worth called Fort Worth Fire Beats. She continues to produce Fort Worth Fire Beats and work with fire performers across the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex to create dynamic and entertaining shows.
In the fall of 2018, she performed with PyroTex Fire Conclave at Burning Man --- a world renowned arts, music, and culture festival that draws 70,000 people to the Nevada desert every year. Only a few select fire performance teams make the cut and perform in the Great Circle each year before the iconic Burning Man effigy is burned down.
Tina is a licensed Flame Effects Operator in the state of Texas with performers insurance, which means she is able to apply for specialty permits from the fire department for events with a fire show.
She also teaches dance, performance, fire safety and flow arts workshops and classes throughout the state. If you're interested in hiring her as an instructor for your event, please let her know! Private lessons also available.
Some of her most notable performances include...
~PyroTex Fire Conclave Show for Burning Man (2018)
~Mary Kay's Summer Seminar in Dallas (2018)
~CASA's Fire and Ice Gala (2018)
~DIFFA Fundraiser Event (2017)
Additional Booking Notes
I will require at least a 10x10 foot open area for most fire performance, although smaller spaces can work for smaller flame effects. I will also need a small space to safely store props and fuel away from the performance area and patrons.
As a licensed Flame Effects Operator in Texas, I am able to work with your local fire marshal to secure a permit for all public events. Permits do require some pre-planning and at least 1-2 weeks notice in most cases.

Influences & Inspiration
I've been greatly influenced by my belly dance teachers Miabella and Neenah. I work with Miabella, who owns Crescent Moon Belly Dance, closely every week to hone my skills as a dancer, and she pushes me to shine brightly.
I also have wonderful colleagues in the fire community who inspire me from Kaylah Zuli, a dancer and teacher and friend, based in Austin, Texas, to Solar Rain, a fire performance troupe who inspired me to pick up my first fire prop after watching their massive show at Texas Renaissance Festival.
