Fire dance

A 10-minute drive up the coast from Port Vila (Efate Island, Vanuatu), there is a beach area called Mele. There, right on the beach, is a fun 'happenin' bar/restaurant called, what else, The Beach Bar. On Friday nights, there is a very popular fire dance performance put on by a group of young volunteers. Fortunately, as it was packed, we went early for dinner and show and were not disappointed.

These young performers put on a captivating show that impressed all, in spite of the fact that it wasn't at all a culturally traditional Vanuatuan-type performance.

Impressive sight in the contrast of the black night

Mesmerizing swirls

They will also be offering up a circus evening starting next week. Hmmm...sounds interesting.
