All of our fire equipment and loose wicks use 100% Para-Aramid fibre.
Generic Para-Aramid is often incorrectly referred to as Kevlar® which was originally created by DuPont in 1965. Only para aramid fibre produce by Dupont can be called Kevlar®. The technical name for Kevlar® is Para-Aramid.
Para-Aramid is a very strong, heat resistant synthetic fibre which is woven into strips and used for all good fire wicks. This is the best known material for fire props and, unlike inferior wicks using glass fibre or even asbestos, it is durable, inert and completely non- toxic in normal use.
Please note: Para-Aramid is heat resistant, not fire proof. To extend the life of your fire wicks we suggest you use only Paraffin. Avoid using alcohol based fuels as these burn at higher temperature and will degrade the wicks faster.

A lot of the cheaper Aramid products on the market have fibreglass mixed in with the kevlar- the fibreglass does not absorb the fuel and tends to turn silver and dry up with time. If this happens, we recommend you replacing your wick with a purer grade of wick.

  • Bellydancing with Fire with Leslie Rosen

    Bellydancing with Fire with Leslie Rosen

    Bellydancing with Fire was created to introduce experienced belly dancers to basic concepts of fire performance and give fire performers new ways to use familiar tools. It gives instruction on movements that work wonderfully with three of the foundational tools: candles, handlamps and palm torches.

    All of the movement instruction and practise sessions can be applied to non-fire props if you find that fire is not right for you or your venue.

    Bellydancing with Fire includes sections on:

    • Tools
    • Fuel
    • Costuming
    • Safety
    • Movement technique
    • Practice sessions
    • Performance
    • Photo gallery

    About the teacher: Leslie's imagination was captured by bellydance in 1995 and she has not been able to escape yet! As a massage therapist and yoga practitioner her classes are designed with your bodies health and vitality in mind. Her lifelong passion for the circus led her to fire performance in 2001. She was honored with the opportunity to perform for the cast of Cirque du Soleil and has created many large-scale fire performances for everyone from Bumbershoot to Burningman.

    Leslie can be seen in performances with her belly dance troupe Raqs Serpentine and fire performance troupe Pyrosutra. She has been co-producing the Pyramid Lounge, a monthly belly dance show, since March 2003. And works at the Nationally acclaimed Circus Arts Center, The School of Acrobatics and New Circus Arts, in Seattle, WA.

    "Leslie Rosen's performance style is regal, yet playfully inviting."
    Lara Paxton
    Artistic Director of Circus Contraption

    "Leslie is the priestess of fire, keeper of the sacred Flame. Fire is her consort. Her dancing is mesmerizing."
    Bellydance Legend
