Fire Dancers in the Philippines

Photo belongs to meFire Dancing is gaining popularity in the Philippines. This has become one of the most entertaining shows when you spend you night at the beach. Philippines is known for beautiful beaches where a number of beach destinations are master-planned for beach partying! There are beaches that are very popular for night partying in the country; Boracay, Panglao Island, and Puerto Galera to name a few. One would surely be entertained of the spectacular shows from the Fire Dancers.

Fire Dancing from other culture is a ritual. It is performed to ward off the witches if there is an epedemic. In India for example, Fire dancing is performed during spring festival. There is no definite timeline when Fire Dancing started in the Philippines even before the Spanish invasion.

The photo was shot in Puerto Galera, Philippines back in September 2012 and April 2013.

I've never seen fire dancing other than on television. I imagine it is quite exciting to be viewing a live performance right there in front of you.

Been to both Boracay and Puerto Galera! Although both are lovely beaches, I enjoy the atmosphere and vibe in Puerto Galera. As for the fire dancers, yes, they are very impressive especially those hot, sexy girls doing it in their bikinis!
