Learn how to master the arts of fire in complete safety

Development of a fire artist

A person wishing to become a professional fire artist must go through the following 3 steps. It is not necessary to have the ambition to become a professional fire artist to participate in our activities, the majority of our members are recreational fire artists

Step 1 - Safety first!

The course 101 Safety in fire arts is the very first step to take if you are interested in fire arts.

Step 2 - Develop skills

Continuous combination of the following 3 elements:

Workshops without fire with mentors to learn new movements
Practice without fire the movements in learning, it is always possible to practice without fire outside the fire zone during the training night.
Practice with fire the movements mastered at 100% during self training night

Here the watchword is practice, practice and more practice!

Step 3 - The professional level

When a performer wishes to participate in shows, a fire performer insurance policy becomes required as the performer will have to apply for permits from the fire department. The insurer may ask for proof of completion of the safety course that is offered through the Fire Guard certification.

Questions and Answers (FAQ)

Do I need to be a fire artist to participate?

No, not at all!

On the other hand, it is important to know that being an artist of fire requires certain mental and physical qualities. If you can’t move easily, can’t concentrate or act quickly, the fire arts may not be for you. When you register, you will have to accept a waiver that stipulates several conditions.

The formation Fire safety training theoretical and practical is mandatory and included free of charge in the subscription.

No one can enter the security perimeter without having successfully completed the fire arts security training.

If this is your very first contact with fire, make sure you wear only natural fibers (cotton, wool, linen, leather), nothing synthetic.

I don’t know what discipline to choose! What’s the best?

Sometimes it is not the artist who chooses the discipline but the discipline that chooses the artist! We have fire-free training equipment on site that you can manipulate to experiment. There is no discipline better than any other, the important thing is that you feel pleasure in practicing.

If I already have my students, can I use your training area for my fire classes?

If you already have your students, we can organize an area dedicated to your group.

Don’t forget that all artists entering the area must have received the GardeFeuFirefighting safety course for firefighters.
