FyrePhly


FyrePhly has been dancing since the age of three.  Her first style of dance was ballet and it took off from there: bellydance, jazz, tap, modern, hip hop and allegro.  For several years she taught veil dance with Milwaukee's Gypsymoondance where her teaching has focused on the use of props as an extension of the dancer.  FyrePhly's performances are known for the integration of electronic music with both fire and non-fire object manipulation.

Skills:  Poi, Fans, Levitation Wand, and Orb.
Fire Brigade Trivia: When luciferase was first discovered, the only way to obtain the chemical was from fireflies themselves.  Today, synthetic luciferase is available, but some companies still harvest fireflies , which may be contributing to their decline.
