ASHFORD, CT: WildFire Spinning Arts Retreat
The Spinning Arts Foundation
WildFire is the East Coast's premier prop spinning and fire arts training camp. Our mission is to spread the spinning arts and build community among spinning artists.
WildFire Retreat offers a diverse selection of classes on poi, hoop, staves, dance, teaching, fire safety, business, performance, and so much more. Situated on a picturesque campground, you will enjoy this camping style retreat, where meals and hot showers are provided.
With a "participation-based" philosophy, this event is for both established spinners and aspiring beginners! WildFire is the perfect spot for you to share, grow, discover, and learn with the spinning and fire arts community.
The retreat begins on Friday afternoon at 3:00pm and lasts through Monday at 2:00pm. A ticket price of just $185 includes all classes, your own safety blanket, 3 meals a day (including vegan/vegetarian and allergy-sensitive options), access to a beautiful and safe burn field, bathrooms and hot showers. All attendees volunteer 5-6 hours of time at the retreat - a great way to meet people, participate, and allow us to keep ticket prices low!
