Featured Artist : Michelle Baas
Michelle BaasI grew up in Maryland and I twirled baton competitively for 12 years. In August of 2000 I moved to Tucson, after winning 2 gold medals at the NBTA World Championships in Birmingham, England. Soon after arriving in Tucson, I discovered fire dancing and I knew immediately that it was what I had been waiting for. My skills as a baton twirler transferred over perfectly, and it was the best thing that ever happened to me. I love fire spinning! Teaching and performing gives me a feeling of completeness and direction, as well as an outlet to fully express myself in an uplifting way that everyone can enjoy. I am currently performing with and managing Elemental Artistry Fire Arts Performance Troupe in Tucson. I am available to teach workshops and perform nationwide.

Featured Article : Proper Care and Storage of Your Wicks

Proper care and storage of you wicks can keep the help maintain the burn time and longevity of your props. The question often arises, “how often should I have to get new poi?” While the answer isn't simple, how you care for them plays a large role. Here are a few suggestions to help you keep your props in good condition.

1.    The Kevlar wick material is made to take the heat, but it does degrade over time. Once you’ve extinguished your tools, leave them wrapped firmly in a damp towel, trying to put it in contact with as much metal as possible. The towel will draw the heat away from the metal and Kevlar, reducing the post-fire-dancing damage to your wicks.

2.    Don’t practice with your fire wicks. Use practice props whenever possible. Of course it is important to practice with your fire gear without fire, but, when learning new tricks or doing the majority of your practicing, it is much better to replace your fire wicks with properly-weighted practice props. When practicing with actual wicks, hitting yourself or the ground, or intentionally doing wraps, bounces, kicks, and other such moves (with poi) put stress on the wick material that it is not designed for. Practice props increase the longevity of your equipment

a.For poi spinners it is highly recommended to purchase weighted practice poi which can be attached to your regular poi leashes. These will save your fire wicks for performance and keep you much cleaner!Fire Mecca sells Stage Ball Poi, which can be weighted, for just this purpose.

b.For staff spinners, The Fire Mecca Practice Staff is available. An even better option is the with Fire Mecca BlazeLink staff; a staff spinner can simply switch the fire ends with the practice ends.

c.If you perform with another tool, or a non-BlazeLink staff, protecting your wicks during practice can be done by covering your fire wicks with a sock or draw string bag. If you cover your wicks with a sock, use a rubber band, if possible, to keep the sock in place as you are spinning. Damage could still occur to your wicks but this is certainly better than nothing.

3.    When transporting your props, keep them covered and in separate containers. Placing your props in individuals bags or containers and then in a larger gig bag.
