Fire Dance (ii)
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
At Mana Island we were entertained each night with different shows. One night it was a Polynesian Floorshow and Fire Dance display with some of the staff from the resort putting on a show of their local dances.
Here is another action from the Fire-twirling dance from the South Pacific Islands. The islands have a wealth of spoken history and many of these stories are also told in dance. The women have their own Polynesian style of exciting and exotic dance with body movements emphasised by swaying grass skirts and flower wreath.
The men's fire dance, with flaming sticks twirling, is performed in darkness and accompanied by a compelling drumbeat. The dancing is a precise skill that is taught from a young age and is inherent to every Polynesian child's life.

Playing with fire! That is hot!
Very nice action picture. When youlook at his concentration not to get burned.
I think the background and crop could improve the picture so I made for you a workshop!

A good decisive moment & daily life shot from Fiji. I like the raised foot off the ground. Well done!
Nice lighting, no artefacts on the face, wonderful action shot. Well done, Jancie!

Nice action shot showing intense concentration in the dancers face.Nice sharp image although and I might be incorrect in saying but it seems a bit grainy, however well captured.
