Vanua Fire is a group of talented dancers who perform fire twirling in Port Vila, Vanuatu.

This group of young dancers were trained at Wan Smolbag, a Non Government Organization in Port Vila, which helps young people who are unemployed or school dropouts to gain further skills and knowledge for their future.

Vanua Fire was first started in March, 2011.  This art of dancing with fire was taught to the youth by a volunteer from the United Kingdom, known as Ricky Hinton.  Vanua Fire are now performing in numerous hotels and resorts around Port Vila and Efate island.

Early in 2013, Vanua Fire started a new performance act known as Sunset Circus.  The Sunset Circus performs weekly at Beach Bar in Mele.

Come and check out the Vanua Fire show and meet the talented and friendly dancers!
